WELCOME TO FLYING HILLS SCHOOL OF THE ARTS
We are a preschool-8th grade Title 1 school that serves approximately 730 students. Our staff strives to provide a well-rounded educational experience where arts are integrated within the academic curriculum, as well as through daily direct arts instruction. Our school creates an educational experience that provides all students opportunities to express their ideas creatively while developing a strong academic foundation to serve as a springboard for a lifetime of learning.
Flying Hills School of the Arts offers ongoing high-quality arts instruction that includes
Music, Visual Arts, Dance, and Theatre. We are committed to bringing the arts to our students every single day!
Through study and performance, students develop language and literacy skills, understanding, knowledge, and an appreciation of the arts. Students learn skills and techniques in all areas of the arts while developing lifelong skills such as confidence, self-awareness, empathy, cultural awareness, and self-discipline. We value development of self-understanding, creativity, and responsibility through the following arts areas:
- VISUAL ARTS - All students participate in drawing, designing, painting, sculpting, and creating unique works of art that allow them to express their ideas and thoughts. You can see our student artwork displayed at community art exhibits and museums, as well as in newspapers and other publications.
- MUSIC - Through both vocal and instrumental music, students develop knowledge, skills, and an appreciation for music as an art form. Students learn basic music theory, vocal techniques, and performance skills. All students receive specialized weekly music instruction from our music specialist.
- THEATRE - A strong emphasis is placed on activities that develop and stimulate students’
imagination and creative expression. Lessons in set and prop design, sound, lighting, improvisation, auditioning, stagecraft, and character and scene development not only help build their self confidence, but also allow the students to explore and discover the world of theatrical arts. Many of these skills are applied in theatrical productions throughout the school year.
- DANCE - Creative expression is developed through dance and movement. Skills in different
forms of dance (i.e., creative, modern, ballet, hip-hop, and jazz) are emphasized through
composition and performance of individual and group choreographed dances.
If you are looking for an educational experience unlike anything else in East County, Flying Hills School of the Arts is the place for you!
