Performing Arts

The Performing Arts program is designed to develop language and communication skills and creative problem-solving strategies; to promote a positive self-concept, social awareness, empathy, a clarification of values and attitudes, and an understanding of the art of performance. 

Instrumental and Vocal Music

Performing is an essential activity of any music group and is therefore part of the band and choir curriculum. Students are required to participate in all performances and occasional group rehearsals.  As an alternative to performance-based classes, a general music class offers seventh and eight graders the chance to explore the world of music without performance requirements.

Students participate in performances and occasional group rehearsals.  Many students also pursue private lessons and participate in community music groups to further develop their skills and feed their passion for music.


The theater arts program at Whitfield encourages participants to develop talents they posses both on stage and behind the scenes, while exploring and fostering the innate creativity found in all students. The many courses provide students with the resources needed to help them take risks, develop their imaginations and learn creative problem-solving techniques associated with the performing arts.
