Visual Arts

All scholars at West Prep have the opportunity to take visual arts classes as part of our elective program.  Art class provides students with the foundational skills needed to build an understanding of drawing, parinting, and sculpture.  Students also learn about art genres, art movements, and art as a tool for social justice.  

 

Performing Arts

Know in West Prep as the "Cabaret" our teachers work with students on stage to develop their singing, acting and dancing skills leading up to a performance for the Winter Arts Show and Spring Arts Show.

 

Media

During media class students work on a range of projects from music production in garage band, to computer programming.  Our Media electives offer a time and space for scholars to take ownership of their learning and embark on a project that gives them creative and intellectual freedom.

 

Health

All scholars at West Prep are participating in health classes to learn about healthy living, diet, exercise, and HIV, and the reproductive system.  Health curriculum varies from grade to grade.

 

Titan Studio

Titan Studios are offered every Thursday afternoon for an hour.  Students take part in a robust elective program where they choose from a menu of options such as sign language, journalism, yearbook and art portfolio preparation.  Titan Studios take part in two celebrations per year called Arts Showcases and are held in December and June.
