Visual and Performing Arts


Mission Hills High School offers a balanced, comprehensive, standards-based arts program. Courses are offered in dance, music, theater and visual art. We are a team of artists and student artists, committed to pursuing excellence in our fields and collaborating to provide meaningful experiences in the arts for the school community.

The arts:
  • Enhance and balance the curriculum
  • Provide students with opportunities to propose and solve problems
  • Expand perceptual skills
  • Celebrate the achievement of diverse cultures
  • Provide students with the creative skills to be productive participants in today’s economy
The Visual and Performing Arts standards are grouped under the following strands:

Artistic Perception

            What do I know?

Creative Expression

            What can I create?

Historical and Cultural Context

            How does it fit into culture and history?

Aesthetic Valuing

            How do I feel about it?

Connections, relationships, application

            How do I connect it to other subjects, to the world around me, to careers?
