KCS brings art to life.
Students learn to express themselves creatively through visual arts, drama, vocal and instrumental music.
Nothing enriches a life quite like the arts. There is a unique joy that comes from hearing a beautiful piece of music or brushing paint onto a canvas.
However, the benefits of arts education extend way beyond the simple – but sublime – enjoyment of visual art, music and drama. It improves academic performance. It develops reading skills. It heightens critical thinking, verbal communication and cultural awareness. In short, it makes a child a better student and a better citizen.
Throughout their years here, KCS students are encouraged to take risks and find their voice through artistic expression.
To lay a strong foundation, all students from Junior Kindergarten through Grade 8 take music and visual arts classes, to learn and develop fundamental artistic and creative skills.
From there, the opportunities to grow and shine are endless – from the school musical and annual art exhibition, to French plays, dance competitions and song writing and composition. Through four distinct disciplines – visual art, music, drama and media arts – the arts are integrated into every aspect of the KCS experience.
At a time when funding for the arts is being cut in school boards across North America, we’ve decided to go in the opposite direction. We value art and creativity, because we want every KCS student to develop a lifelong love and appreciation for art and creativity.
My children have grown academically, emotionally and artistically at KCS. I love their programs such as "Wake Up With the ARTs", it allows my child to express his artistic side with support and enthusiasm.
