The Arts

Students take visual art, drama and music in every grade, learning to express themselves creatively—as individuals and in ensembles—while gaining an understanding of the beauty and range of the human experience. Under the guidance of expert faculty, students draw inspiration for their own creations by studying the works of great artists, playwrights and composers. Many Foote alumni have gone on to fulfilling careers in the arts as actors, illustrators, jazz musicians and composers.

The ninth grade music curriculum includes several semester-long percussive instrumental courses, including steel pans, English handbells and world drumming.
