The arts help students cultivate 21st century skills, such as the ability to work in groups, think critically and creatively, and communicate well. In Bexley Schools, professionals with specialist certifications in their fields teach all aspects of visual and performing arts. A Bexley arts education shapes engaged, successful college- and career-ready students.
Longitudinal data of 25,000 students demonstrate that involvement in the arts in liked to higher academic performance, increased standardized test scores, more community service, and lower dropout rates, according to Americans for the Arts. These cognitive and developmental benefits are reaped by students regardless of their socioeconomic status.
