The mission of the NBPS Fine Arts Department, which encompasses both the visual and performing arts, is to educate our students both in and through the arts. The department offers a sequential curriculum for the acquisition of arts skills, arts integration experiences, both in and out of school opportunities, recognition for student achievement and professional development opportunities for teachers. 

As a core subject designated through the federal No Child Left Behind Act, arts education is recognized as a unique learning modality where students can exercise creativity, work both independently and collaboratively, and take pride and ownership of their learning through a hands-on, multi-sensory approach. The arts are also as a vital part of a holistic education and there is a growing body of research that shows a strong correlation between arts learning and increased learning in other subjects such as math or reading.

Furthermore, learning in and through the arts prepares our children to be vital membersof the 21stcentury workforce not only as artists and musicians but more importantly as thinkers, team members and individuals who are as dedicated as they are passionate.
