Fine Arts

Most fine arts courses will fulfill the Arts/Humanities/Occupational Education graduation requirement. Some courses may be repeated for credit. Some of the advanced courses offered within the Fine Arts Department require prior approval by the instructor, audition, and/or successful completion of a beginning level course before a student may enroll. Students and parents should also be aware that most courses offered in the Fine Arts Department require student participation in extra-curricular activities such as rehearsals and performances, public showings, and production as part of the course requirement.

* Students enrolled in Jazz Band and/or Percussion Ensemble must also be enrolled in another McQueen music performance class (i.e., Marching/Concert Band, Orchestra, or Choir).

_Note: Students in performance-based classes (e.g. band, orchestra, choir, debate, drama) are required to participate in after school, evening, and/or weekend performances or rehearsals. Students need not meet eligibility requirements if performances are part of the class, but if the event is outside the school site and/or strictly competitive, regular eligibility requirements must be met._
