AISD is committed to the education of the whole child and believes that every student should have a basic knowledge, skill and appreciation of the fine arts. For many years, AISD has taken pride in the outstanding accomplishments of its multi-faceted fine arts programs which include elementary fine arts classes as well as secondary-level band, choir, drill team, music theory, orchestra, speech, theatre arts and visual arts. The school district supports the philosophy that the benefits derived from a quality arts education program will enable students to develop self-esteem, self-discipline, self-motivation and cooperation necessary for success in life.
The mission of the Abilene Independent School District fine arts department is to provide support to campus fine arts teachers, encouraging them to create an inspiring delivery of the sequential subject matter defined by the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills to all students in their classrooms.
Dedicated and highly-qualified fine arts teachers combine their skills with eager-to-learn students to complete a formula for successful arts education in AISD. Together, they are proud to be in AISD!
