THE ARTS AND CREATIVITY
Beginning in Early Childhood all the way through to High School, the arts are an important part of our curriculum. Our youngest students get exposure through many activities that help them learn basic creative skills. As they move on to the upper grades, they can choose their preferred music instrument, take Advanced Placement (AP) Art courses, and choose arts electives. 

Every year, our High School students participate in local art, music, and theatre activities. They travel to different cities of Ecuador to present their work through art exhibitions and music performances.
 
Our theatre students prepare during the whole year to present an official “Broadway Jr.” show at the end of the term, at their local theatre, opened to the community. These experiences help our students learn the importance of showcasing their work widely, at the most advanced levels of creativity and excellence.
