Mission Statement

The mission for arts education in Hampton School District One is for students to become successful from arts standards-based learning and opportunities that foster their personal, imaginative, and expressive skills. As students experience learning in an arts-enriched environment, they will acquire a sense of self-assurance, belonging, and learn to be creators, enduring appreciators of the arts, and seekers of knowledge.

Artistically gifted and talented students can be found within any racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic group; within any nationality; within both genders; and within populations with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, or behavioral problems.

Referrals will be accepted from administrators, parents, guardians, teachers, and students for current 3rd through 6th grade students in the artistic areas of dance, music, theater, or visual art.
