Visual & Performing Arts
MAB provides a rich environment that exposes students to a variety of artistic endeavors while also challenging them to continue to develop and perfect their unique talents.
We believe that creative self-expression has a profound effect on the intellectual growth of our students, and develops a standard of excellence and self-confidence that will positively impact all aspects of their lives. Whether it be flamenco, tap, jazz, salsa, ballet, or violin, there’s no shortage of outlets for soaring creativity.
STEM integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics into project-based learning that is hands-on and that inspires connections between disciplines.
The ultimate goal of STEM education is to prepare our young learners and help them “function and thrive in our highly technological age.” Through experiments, class discussions, and group work, STEM education at MAB encourages teamwork, application of knowledge, critical thinking, innovation, and resilience.
