Jemicy’s Upper School Performing Arts Department is founded on the belief that students with language-based learning differences and/or executive function deficits are provided free entry into a rousing experience of self-expression, self-discovery, and transformation that yields increased skill development, retention, and integration.
In order to obtain such outcomes, the Performing Arts Department is simultaneously predicated on the belief that only through the highest standards of excellence and execution will the optimum returns for our students be achieved. For the neuro-diverse learner, the performing arts allow students to engage with their academic and personal worlds through creative exploration.  Students have ample opportunities throughout the year to perform for their peers and for the greater community. These performances aim to enhance students’ appreciation of the arts, improve dramatic and musical literacy, increase confidence, and build community.
