We, the members of the Fine Arts Department are excited to be a part of the highly anticipated International Baccalaureate Programme and its initiation at Ramsay High School. We feel that our content area is indispensable to the success of the program. Moreover, each of us brings a unique talent and perspective that opens learners minds to culturally relevant instruction as well as personal growth. We look forward to interaction with the other departments to enhance the total education of our students.
The Fine Arts Department will continue to excel and enhance educational excellence by reinforcing the knowledge of other disciplines through foreign language instruction and the visual and performing arts. This will include exposure to a broad spectrum of cultural and academic experiences which will ensure that they will become active participants in a global society.
