Placement into upper level and AP Arts courses is granted based on a review of the student’s work. For returning students the review is conducted by the current arts teacher. For new students the review is done by the department head or the appropriate teacher, with the support of the registrar.
The review might include a conversation between the student and teacher, a review of a portfolio of the student’s work, or an audition.
All placements are subject to review by the head of the department.
