Integrated Arts

In accordance with our School Reopening Plan, Integrated Arts offerings have been significantly altered for the 20-21 school year. Please see the School Reopening Plan or contact administration if you have any questions.

Often called “specials” or “UA (Unified Arts)”, your child’s Integrated Arts classes are taught by specialists who are certified in their area, love and know their craft!

Your IA team’s goals are for children to become knowledgeable, critical thinkers who are good at solving problems by teaching students to take the time to be more careful and thorough in how they observe the world. The arts provide challenges for learners at all levels. These activities give students creative outlets and opportunities that they may not otherwise have in regular classes.

Elementary (Kindergarten through Grade 5)
Your child will visit special area classes on a six day rotating schedule: Art, Music, Physical Education, Technology, STEM, and Library or Wellness. The instruction and activities provided in these courses helps children with the development of motor skills, language skills, social skills, decision-making, risk-taking, 21st century technology skills and inventiveness.

Middle (Grades 6 through 8)
Our middle school students have many areas of interest to explore throughout their three year program at Chester. Courses are offered three trimesters per school year in the areas of music academics or performance, physical education, health, STEM related courses, and a variety of visual arts classes.
