We first learn about the world through sight, sound, movement and creative play. Here at RHS we offer a variety of classes in the Fine Arts Department: Band, Choir, Debate, Orchestra, Piano, Theatre and Visual Arts. We also offer AP Art History and AP Music Theory. Throughout life, the Arts remain critical to our balanced development as creative, problem-solving members of our communities. The Arts not only enrich our lives but also have a profound impact on educational achievement. Research shows that students in the Arts outperform others by virtually every measure. Even more compelling is that learning through the Arts can “level the playing field” and keep students in school. There are opportunities for students to be involved in Lab Management in our Art department. We are proud of the well rounded programs offered here at RHS, which involve students from all walks of life.
