Through the arts, Curie students engage with innovative thinkers and leaders to experience the arts both as audience members and as artists.  We emphasize not only creativity and imagination, but also the values of cultural understanding and social harmony that the arts produce so well. Dance, music and visual art teachers at Curie are agents of change, combining academic excellence, personal support and a creative, student-centered vision. These students learn that all art forms are interconnected.  They learn to understand the social, historical and cultural contexts of all the art forms.  Curie understands that the arts are an ideal platform for developing inclusive attitudes and beliefs and for challenging stereotypes based on difference.  Curie is committed to providing authentic learning experiences that will provide a foundation for life-long learning.  Our mission is to prepare students to become leaders and engaged citizens in a global society, enabling then to contribute positively and responsibly to their community and the world around them.
