The South Country School District is proud of the many achievements of our Fine and Performing Arts program.  We offer a comprehensive art and music program for all students beginning in kindergarten through 12th grade.   Our offerings in Visual Arts and Music provide opportunities for students to explore new modes of creative expression and increase understanding of the ways in which the arts shape and enrich cultural awareness.   Through creative expression, students are encouraged to develop a lifelong appreciation for the Arts.  

Our students' artwork is continuously exhibited at a variety of showcases and our music students regularly earn top rankings at competitive festivals.  We take great pride in promoting our student achievements, providing highlights of our exhibits and performances.
