The music, theater, and dance programs give students a place to develop the skills that they will use throughout their lifetime.
Westtown School emphasizes a collaborative, creative, and process-oriented approach in both classes and co-curricular programs. Our students are uniquely prepared to take on the problems of the 21st century in pro-active, empathetic, and inventive ways. Performing Arts students develop invaluable abilities such as handling responsibility, problem solving, organizing and motivating themselves and others, developing effective interpersonal communication, and gaining confidence.
Students are given a safe environment to take risks, to learn by doing, to fail and try again, and ultimately to succeed and grow.
