At the American School of Paris we believe that the performing arts are essential to the holistic, student centered educational program we seek to present.
The performing arts curriculum and co-curricular activities offer myriad chances to celebrate, challenge, instruct, encourage, value, appreciate and affirm our student body; the cultures they share and the beliefs they hold. Participation in the performing arts is a powerful and immediate way of fostering friendships in a fun, collaborative and supportive atmosphere.
The performing arts have enormous intrinsic value, and are recognized with equal curricular time in the daily schedule. However, it is their ability to also greatly enhance academic, social, emotional and cultural aspects of student life, that places them in a unique position within a holistic education.
