The Arts is an integral and unique part of a child’s core education. At Queensbury we believe our Arts education stimulates creativity and imagination whilst giving the child unique opportunities to develop intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially. Through the Arts we help students express their ideas creatively using basic skills and knowledge at levels of expertise appropriate to their interest and development. Our Arts mission at Queensbury School is to prepare students to be appreciators and supporters of the Arts as they become contributing citizens of the community.
