The high school has been awarded a Student Achievement Grant that will be used to continue expanding the art department’s exceptional outreach and array of opportunities for students.  
   
To address the implementation of the National Core Art Standards, the $2,000 grant — awarded by the NEA Foundation — will be used to create a professional art gallery at the school. Students will create various works and develop their art interpretation skills by learning how to best gain insight into the meaning of art and art criticism. The students will also have opportunities to present their artwork to the community for the purpose of audience analysis, evaluation and appreciation.
   
The district’s application and plans for the grant reflects its commitment to continuing to provide an extensive education for students.
