arts in education

Garland Independent School District is committed to the education of the whole child and as a component of that education believes that every student should have a basic knowledge, skills and appreciation of the fine arts. Garland ISD believes that a quality arts education program will enable students to develop self-esteem, self-discipline, self motivation and cooperation necessary for success in life. 

Brandenburg arts program provides an environment which offers challenges to all students, builds on individual differences and provides means by which students may express themselves and develop positive self-concepts.
