Showcasing the Pride of Methacton
Feature of the Month: Art Program
Welcome to our first edition of “Showcasing the Pride of Methacton” – a monthly, online series where we will focus on programs, and the contributions of our students and staff who make the Methacton School District not only our home and our school, but among the best school districts in the Commonwealth. This month, we're placing a spotlight on Methacton's Art program!
The Art program at Methacton is based upon a collective effort to shape the potential of all of our students. While the program provides for advanced course work in the visual arts that leads our graduates to pursue opportunities at some of the top art institutes and colleges, it also provides all Methacton students with an appreciation for art in a global context, and a well-rounded education.

Eastern State Penitentiary. Methacton is one of 19 high schools to
participate in the exhibition. 15 students overall received special
recognition for their artwork.
February 19 - March 23: 6TH ANNUAL TRI-COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL EXHIBITION & COMPETITION
March 8 - April 11: Emerging Artists Exhibit at Shannondell Art Gallery
Methacton believes that the Arts program is essential to early learning. It allows students to construct knowledge in meaningful social contexts with peers and adults. As Superintendent, I am continually amazed by the efforts of our art teachers, their work with our students, their impact on creating an inclusive climate within this district, and the ongoing recognition they bring to our school community.
I hope you enjoy this glimpse inside some of the many outstanding ways Methacton Schools support student creativity and provide unique and inspiring learning opportunities. There is so much more to come!
