Arts students are excited to come to school!
At Folwell students learn in and through the arts. Students have a comprehensive schedule that meets all requirements that is infused with arts integration and daily arts instruction. Students are proud of their school and the arts accomplishments. Third graders just got their violins last week! Our students learn to perceive and respond to the world through the arts. We believe that giving our students enriching experiences through the arts builds stronger, smarter students who are community oriented.
