Arts & Athletics

We believe a strong arts education helps students appreciate global culture, sharpens communication skills, encourages creativity and honest self-confidence. We strive to instill a life-long love of the arts to enrich and deepen the whole range of life experiences. Our students develop abilities and habits of mind that complement their learning across the curriculum. They communicate ideas, using all the available tools. They analyze and respond to others’ creative efforts. They create, revise and reflect on their work to solve aesthetic problems while learning patience and resilience.

From Preschool through Secondary School, fine and performing arts are interwoven across the disciplines. In addition, visual and performing art classes encourage discovery of relationships between the creative process and evaluative skills that enable a clearer understanding of our world.

Beginning in kindergarten, Santa Clara International School students have classes in visual arts, music and theatre. Primary  School students participate in  music class in addition to Drama. Secondary School students participate in visual arts, theatre, debate, public speaking and music.

Sports are a great educational experience, teaching students to persevere, lead, and work with teammates and achieve goals. Just like our academic programs at Santa Clara International School, our athletic curriculum is vertically aligned and builds on skills from year-to-year. Introductions to sports are made in Preschool and Primary School.

Physical Education classes are taught throughout the year so students can try out different sports and find out which activities they enjoy. Depending on their age and abilities, students learn fundamental skills and rules helping prepare them to appreciate Athletics moving forward.
