The San Felipe CISD and the Fine Arts Department believe that a Fine Arts education is essential for the development of the whole child. The arts provide students with unique experiences that allow them to explore their passions, maximize their creativity and critical thinking skills, and learn valuable lessons about self-motivation, dedication, team work, and communication.
SFDRCISD is dedicated to providing an arts-rich education for every student. Fine Arts education is available at all 12 schools serving all of the district's 10,500 students.
Middle and High School students in grades 6-12 are offered many different fine arts strands to pursue:
Each of these sequential courses, all of which feature a meaningful and rigorous curriculum taught by expert staff, provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for cognitive, creative, emotional and social growth. By enrolling in these fine arts courses, students are also eligible to participate in clinics and contests such as UIL Concert and Sight Reading, One Act Play, Dance Spectacular (Recitals) and Visual Art Scholastic Event (VASE) as well as various concerts, events, and art exhibits throughout the community. Fine Arts students from SFDRCISD have won numerous district, regional and state awards and scholarships, and many have gone on to pursue the arts in higher education and beyond.
