The Arts

 

Welcome to the Fine & Performing Arts webpage.

The Arts are an essential part of The Bellmore-Merrick CHSD as they give our students a unique means of expression, capturing their passions and emotions, and allowing them to explore new ideas, subject matter, and cultures. The Arts education in our district not only enhances students' understanding of the world around them, but it also broadens their perspective on traditional academics. Participation in our arts programs enhances self-esteem, builds self-discipline, fosters creativity, and reinforces societal values such as cooperation, commitment, and working towards a common goal.

It is our mission to provide an opportunity for all students to participate in the arts, whether it be through our wide variety of course offerings or involvement in the countless extracurricular activities our schools provide.
