Middle School

Arts

St. Andrew’s Middle School Fine Arts Program is enormously popular and inclusive, with many opportunities for students to explore, learn, and grow.

Sculpting, sketching, and collage art projects refine fundamental skills and expose students to new creative media. Band, Orchestra, and Percussion ensembles teach students to harmonize and maintain synchronicity, while our Choir and Theatre classes build vocal strength and dramatic interpretation.

School events throughout the year bring our artists together to showcase their talents, while regional and state-wide competitions let our students shine on a larger scale. St. Andrew's students consistently make top-ranking at these events, a true testimony to the dedication and expertise of our Fine Arts faculty.

Additionally, our Middle School students put on dramatic plays and full-scale musicals each year, taking advantage of the world-class Dell Fine Arts Center at the Upper School campus.

  • MS Performs Full Version of "Into The Woods"

    St. Andrew’s Middle Schoolers took on the full version of Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Into The Woods” this month under the guidance of teachers Jason Kruger and Annie Blancken. Thinking of the musical challenges, Annie remarks, “The students had to work very closely with me to learn the complicated rhythmic and lyrical passages in this musical. It is truly amazing that they were able to perform it! Most middle schools do a junior version, which excludes the second act. We chose to do the full version, which was a huge risk. The students rose to the challenge beautifully!” See the "Into The Woods" photo gallery here (courtesy Peggy Keelan).
