What is Polar Performing Arts Focus?

The Polar Performing Arts Focus Is:

A flexible curricular option for School District #57 high school students who are currently dedicated to achievement in the performing arts and maintaining academic success in grades 10-12.

The Performing Arts Focus allows flexibility for performing artists for completing graduation requirements while remaining dedicated and involved in the performing arts community. The students involved in this focus benefit from the enriched program and opportunities.

Via IDS (Independent Directed Studies) courses, Performing Arts Focus students  create, initiate, perform, involve, educate and inspire younger students as well as their peers. Projects for IDS courses include performing arts appreciation and education for elementary students & secondary students.
