Fine Arts Programs in Sheldon ISD

Sheldon ISD offers high-quality, standards-based fine arts instruction to all students PreK-Graduation.


In Elementary School, all students have regular experiences in Visual Art and General Music classes, while our students at Performing & Visual Arts Compass Schools also have additional classroom experiences in Drama/Theatre and Dance/Movement.


In Middle and High Schools, students start their journey by choosing beginner-level courses in Art, Band, Choir, Dance, or Theatre with the intention that they will continue with these programs to the advanced levels through the rest of middle school and high school. The High School Visual Art pathway progress all the way to Art IV in both 2D Drawing/Painting and 3D Ceramics/Sculpture and to AP Art, while the High School Performing Arts pathways progress to varsity-level, competition-grade performance ensembles in Band, Choir, Dance (Pantherettes), and Theatre Production (including Technical Theatre).


The Fine Arts Department also supports Sheldon ISD's award-winning Cheerleading, Civil Air Patrol (MS only), and Air Force JROTC (HS only) Programs, which can be taken for PE Credit.


For our Instrumental Music classes (Band), here are the instruments offered:

Note: It is the expectation that instrument selection will be done in partnership with our trained, certified fine arts teachers and that students will then stick to that instrument throughout their schooling as they progress to mastery.

  • Band - Woodwind, Brass, and Percussion Instruments: including Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, F Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba, and Multi-Percussion (drums, mallet instruments, accessories, etc.).
