New Albany High School's Mission Statement:
New Albany High School is dedicated to developing lifelong learners and responsible citizens.
"When students believe success is possible, they will try. If they don’t believe they can succeed, it doesn’t matter how easy the material or how smart the students, they will fail."
NAHS Art Department Mission Statement:
It is our vision to nurture and explore the artist within all our students. We seek to identify the rich creative and intellectual potential of students as they awaken to the lifelong value placed on critical and analytical skills. We celebrate and respect works of art from global cultures and are enhanced intellectually by the history and style of the visual arts. It is the department's belief that an art education builds the expertise necessary for students seeking to assume their respective roles as practitioners, educators, and informed patrons of the visual arts. Our students develop their visual and analytical talents while gaining the breadth of knowledge, intellectual curiosity and writing skills that a liberal arts education can provide while developing their own artistic voices both in and outside of the classroom.
