The School of Humanities' purpose is to educate students planning careers in visual, performing or language arts, in social studies or in other fields that require a broad-based liberal arts background. The learning experience is centered around students' own interests, talents and experiences, assisted by teachers who share these interests.
The school of Humanities aims to help students achieve their unique potential and appreciate the contributions of other individuals and cultures. Students are encouraged to develop a strong work ethic and to make a positive impact on the community.
There are a variety of venues for students to express themselves and enrich their learning experience through writing, drawing, acting, singing, and playing musical instruments. The Madera High Band, Black Box Theatre, Choir, and Guitar/Piano are part of the School of Humanities.
