Through the understanding and implementation of art concepts, students will gain a greater appreciation of different types of media from cultures around the world. Specific artists will be studied as well as the ability to learn techniques such as painting, ceramics, pottery and sculpture. The study of art will enhance the learning experience and take advantage of the expertise of the artists in our community.
Through rhythm, students will come to appreciate world music in a modern learning environment. While working with music educators and musicians in our community, students will develop a greater understanding of musical composition, instruments, and role that music plays in our world.
Exercise is a necessary part of a healthy lifestyle. Through motion, we not only can improve our health, but also gain a greater sense of self-awareness and self-expression. At Metropolitan Schoolhouse, students have several outlets in which to express themselves through movement. Whether through yoga, dance, martial arts or group workouts, students will learn importance of movement in their lives.
Through the study of the human body, nutrition and healthy relationships, students will gain an understanding of the importance of health in their lives. Health is all encompassing. It not only encompasses diet and exercise, but also emotional health. Through studying the biology of the human body and how it is affected by our habits as well as studying healthy relationships and the importance of balance, students will walk away with an understanding of how a healthy lifestyle is maintained.
At Metropolitan Schoolhouse, we pride ourselves on supporting the individual interests of our students. We will work with our students to create a program specific to their individual interests while still completing the required material needed for promotion. The sky is the limit!
