Instilling an appreciation for the Arts in students and inspiring them to express themselves creatively are intrinsic to The Cushman School philosophy. Not only is this developmentally appropriate to bring out students' creative spirit, but art can be applied to a better understanding in all analytical subjects as well. The ability to solve complex problems through creative design thinking is a valuable skill that Cushman students develop through unique and relevant programming. Visual arts, music and regular performances are hallmarks of our School. Exciting programming additions over the evolution of Cushman’s curriculum include a week-long Artist-in-Residence Program for our Middle School students, and all-school Gallery Walk to showcase our students’ creativity, music festivals and South Florida’s moving TEDxYouthMiami event. Celebrating the Arts is a big part of the Cushman experience!
