While most schools look to cut costs by doing away with their Art program, at Shepherd of the Hills we have a different outlook. We feel that artistic ability is a God-given gift and that all students should have the time and instruction to explore art. We have a local La Mesa artist comes in once a week to work with the upper grade students on the concepts and skills of Art. We also have an Art lover that comes in to work with our lower grade students once a week. The students are able to create amazing works of Art!
At the end of every school year, Shepherd of the Hills puts on a school wide musical or play. Time and time again, parents rave as this is one of the highlights of the school year and are always amazed at how well their children perform in front of so many people. Students are able to work on memorization and also continually improve on their public speaking.
