Our Visual & Performing Arts Program

The Maples Academy offers a Visual & Performing Arts program lead by specialists. From as young as 3, students explore multiple disciplines in the Visual & Performing Arts and are encouraged to express themselves creatively. Although the IB program is primarily an academics-focussed program, learning Visual & Performing Arts enforces a more well-rounded experience for the student, allowing them to flourish not only academically but artistically as well. Moreover, the Visual & Performing Arts program at The Maples Academy is not an isolated experience, as topics explored in academic curriculum are weaved into the Visual & Performing Arts curriculum. This makes students’ learning applicable and relevant to different contexts, both interculturally and across diverse subject areas. For example, students can be found creating artistic masterpieces using recycling as a theme, during their related unit in Science. Education is a holistic experience at The Maples Academy, where students strengthen and grow their knowledge beyond standard academics, in real-world contexts.
