The Arts

Overview

Welcome to the Greenville Public Schools Arts Website

Greenville Public Schools has a long standing tradition in excellence in Performing Arts.  The fundamentals of the program are set up by our  excellent K-5 Elementary School staff, and then are built upon by our excellent Middle School Staff.  When students reach the High School, the program there lets each student find their own niche' for success.

Greenville Performing Arts Students have earned awards for every program they have been involved in.  The success of this program was recognized in 2005 from the Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB) with the prestigous 2005 MASB Education Excellence Award.

The Importance of Arts Education

The arts are worth studying simply because of what they are.  Historically, the arts have served to connect our imaginations with the deepest connections of human existence: Who am I? What must I do? Where am I going?

The arts invite deeper levels of thinking.

The arts are used to achieve a multitude of human purposes: to present issues and ideas, to teach or persuade, to entertain, or to please. Becoming literate in the arts helps students understand and do these things better.

The arts are integral to everyone's daily life. Our personal, social, economic and cultural environments are shaped by the arts at every turn.

The arts offer unique sources of enjoyment and refreshment for the imagination.  They explore relationships between ideas and objects and serve as links between thought and action. Their continuing gift is to help us to see and grasp life in new ways.

The arts help students develop the attitudes, characteristics and intellectual skills required to participate effectively in today's society and economy.
