Fine & Performing Arts Department

The Fine and Performing Arts are essential to an excellent education. Consistent and prolonged study in the arts promotes personal, intellectual, social, and emotional development. The arts allow students to exercise creativity and to express themselves in ways that transcend other forms of communication. Mountain Lakes High School offers a growing selection of courses in visual arts, instrumental music, and choral music. We encourage students to engage in multiple years of study in the arts. Many students graduate from MLHS with four full years of Fine Arts course work, and their educational experience is richer for this immersion. Students able to create, reshape, collaborate, and imagine are more ready to enter a world in need of transformative new ideas. MLHS students have the opportunity to pursue multiple strands of arts at the same time, and Advanced Placement courses are available to students in both Visual Art and Music Theory.
