The Sheboygan North High Art Department is pleased to announce that it has officially became a National Art Honor Society (NAHS) chapter. This is the first chapter of its kind in our North High history dedicated to the visual arts.
Visual arts education is essential to 21st-century learning. As a new NAHS chapter we will be utilizing the NAEA to stay ahead of developments in the field of arts education by being introduced to a broad perspective of important research, issues, and policy trends that are important. As a NAHS chapter we are connected to thousands of chapters from around the globe who are passionate about the integral role of the visual arts in ensuring all students to receive a high-quality, effective, and well-rounded education.
We believe that the National Art Honor Society will contribute to reaching our building goals. In addition, introducing students to a diverse art offering beyond the walls of North High will expand their minds, to participate in new art experiences, and to be provided with leadership opportunities, which will contribute to their personal and academic growth. Student success is very important to us and our professional goal is to assist them in their journeys.
