At ROBS, we believe the best education is a well-rounded one. That’s why teaching the arts plays an essential role in our curriculum. We have well-established programs for visual arts, music, and theater. Kids unleash their creativity while also learning the value of practice and self-discipline. And they grow in confidence and poise as they overcome the butterflies associated with public performance.

Talented students take to the stage to sing, dance, strum, and perform during our annual Variety Show. Chapel services, grade-level assemblies, and middle school awards nights offer venues for individual performers to shine. Even parents get into the act leading art and art history lessons through our Art a la Carte program. 

But the relevance of art extends beyond the studio and stage. Our teachers also incorporate creative assignments into other courses, even our most STEM-oriented subjects. To master the quadratic formula, why not write and perform a “quadratic rap”? To practice conversational Spanish, how about creating a cooking video todo en Español?

Our goal is that every young brain becomes a broad canvas of enlightened and creative thinking, and that every ROBS student learns to see the world with more beauty, more curiosity, and more awe.
