Visual and Performing Arts
Due to our project-based, STEAM curriculum, the arts are well integrated into classroom projects and activities.
In addition, thanks to the generous support of our PTSA, Nea has two Art Facilitators, two Music Facilitators, and many art-based elective classes.
All Lower Village learners have one hour of art instruction and one hour of music instruction each week.
Each trimester, Lower Village learners vote on the electives they would like to have. Popular art- and music-based electives include:
Nea is proud of its extensive Visual and Performing Arts program. Middle and high school learners have at least one hour of art or one hour of music per week. Additionally, they can choose from a wide array of arts electives.
Many arts electives are available to both middle and high school learners. High School courses that meet the A-G Visual and Performing Arts requirement are marked with an asterisk.
