North High School endeavors to provide an enriching, vibrant, multidisciplinary environment for the study, creation, and presentation of the Fine Arts. The reason I can claim to be active today, is only because early on in life, I was introduced to the pleasures derived from the adrenalin rush, only playing a sport can bring, Today, I know that the adrenalin releases endorphins which gives you a sense of pleasure, but back then it was just a part of school curriculum.
School is where I found my most loyal, kind and generous supporters, and I can only hope that my friends could say the same about me. And it is again teachers and the school who inculcate the necessity of finding great friends in life, by assigning study partners, making us share our benches and basically teaching us a lesson in having an open mind.
The broad-ranged fine arts program challenges students academically, integrates technology and lays the foundation for extraordinary life experiences. The annual GUHSD Marching Band and Color Guard District Fall Showcase is coming up on Thursday, November 17, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. at Monte Vista High School. DVSA provides high quality, accessible and affordable visual arts education that encourages excellence and personal fulfillment for children and adults.
