  • The arts help students cultivate 21st century skills, such as the ability to work in groups, think critically and creatively and communicate well.

    A Bexley arts education helps shape en-gaged, successful college and career-ready students. The Bexley community values the arts and supports students developing their creative potential.

    Each student in Bexley Schools can create music and art every day. Professionals with specialist certifications in their fields teach all aspects of visual and performing arts.
