• The Collier County Public Schools are committed to providing high quality educational experiences enabling all students to achieve their maximum potential in a safe, positive environment that develops good character and respect for diversity.

    The Fine Arts Department's mission is to provide a comprehensive instructional program for students in grades K through 12 in art and music that reflects the National Standards for Arts Education, the Florida Standards, and provides a lifelong foundation for the understanding and appreciation of all the arts. We believe the arts are a vital component to the development of all students, and our goal is to provide an education that offers skills, stimulates thinking and enables students to thrive in a changing world.

    Why the arts? In studying the arts, we are studying the expressions of civilization and culture. Through the arts, one connects to the past and to the current cultures of one’s own society and to those of others. In addition, the arts expand our creativity and encourage us to explore different solutions to problems.
