Arts in Education Program
The Huntington Arts-in-Education Program is an integral part of the educational experience at all grade levels in the district. The arts provide an exciting, participatory approach to learning that enriches all areas of the school curriculum. The Arts-in-Education committee researches and plans both cultural arts and exploratory programs that are linked directly to core curriculum concepts and skills. Students participate in a wide range of experiences, from seeing their own pieces of creative writing performed by professional actors and chatting with famous authors to working with real scientists and “meeting” characters from American history.
The Arts-in-Education program presents programs designed to enhance the study of children’s literature, the humanities, mathematics, science, fine and performing arts, health and character education. Students are also provided opportunities to visit and learn about the unique historical sites and organizations throughout Huntington. There is a special emphasis on striving to provide programs for single grade levels that connect with specific curriculum objectives. Another initiative is the Teens as Teachers program, which continues to grow. It prepares secondary level students with leadership and teaching opportunities as the present educational programs to younger grades.
