K - grade 5
For children, learning how to express themselves through various creative outlets is essential to their growth and development. MEI Elementary specializes in music instruction that allows for a varied approach to creative learning through Fine Arts and Music, as a means to inspire deeper thinking and nurture the creative gifts in all children. From vocal and instrumental music to visual expressions of painting and drawing, elementary students study many artistic forms as they cultivate their creativity and gain essential tactile, social and imaginative skills.
MEI Middle seeks to teach students how to analyze and interpret different forms of art from a Christian worldview as they begin to discover the creative outlet that best expresses their individual creativity and relationship with Christ. We are one of the few middle schools in the region which provides every grade 6 student with participation in a music and drama program, along with having the option to play in band. Grade 7 students may choose either band or music. Grade 8 students are given the option of band, music, art, or drama. In addition, jazz band, choirs, drumline, marching band, worship teams, weekly chapel services, and a number of other musical outlets offer students many opportunities to interact with others and worship God.
Visual & Performing Arts programs are integral components of MEI Secondary’s vibrant culture, community and curriculum, offering students a solid foundation for creative development. Students have the opportunity to express their individuality and creativity, cultivate their God-given gifts and learn how to effectively serve and influence others through the Arts. Expert instruction and enriching curriculum help students develop their skills, discover new passions and gain valuable experience in the areas of music, visual arts and drama in preparation for further involvement at the post-secondary level.
