At GCS we know how the arts can enrich our students' lives and so we have an extensive program so that everyone gets the chance to explore and develop their creative side. This is why we start with music instruction in K-3 with visual arts being added in kindergarten.
We aim to teach the many different types and techniques of art and encourage students to try different methods for themselves and display their work around the campus. We award this creativity in an annual Ocala Show where our students compete with other schools in the area, and we've had great success over the years with many winning entries.
Our keen young musicians also compete in an annual band festival, where international judges evaluate performances. To date GCS musicians have received some of the highest recognitions.
The dramatic arts are not neglected either and all eighth grade students are involved in the production of our annual play - be they actors, costume and set designers or even helping to write the script. They learn various aspects of drama, from auditions to the excitement of opening night.
