Kiev - School Report Question and Answers

What fine arts electives are available (music, drama, visual arts)?

All of these are available. I would say music in particular is a weak point of the school. It is available, but the program is not as well developed. Drama and visual arts are stronger. - Sep 2021

Yes, all available. - Jun 2018

A: They have a great art and music program in the primary school and a very popular art/music/drama/design tech rotation in the secondary school. - Oct 2013

B/C - The school offers art, music, and activities during the school day in the elementary school. The music teachers, a married couple, are excellent. There is a choir at the middle school and high school levels. Each year there is a musical which is open to all students. There is no band or orchestra. The quality of the art program varies. I found the art instruction at the elementary level to be heavily focused on teaching technique and on copying a model. My younger child even reported that his teacher only allowed him minimal participation in his printmaking project! I never saw an example of my older child's artwork. - Jul 2013
