Wonderful & Different Options of Arts at Binghamton High School
By Madison S
Binghamton Schools offer many arts programs. We have many opportunities for students to express themselves with their favorite type of art. There are many classes you can take to expand the art skills you choose. Students are blessed to have so many opportunities with the Rod Serling Arts School of Binghamton.
Many people and students have different perspectives of the different arts of Binghamton High School. The perspectives of the students will hopefully be a clear description of the arts. The arts at Binghamton High School are useful and can be used in the future. Andrea Harder, student at BHS, was asked: How do you think the school play helps influence or spread the arts of the school? “It helps get the word out into the community so people come to watch and support the arts,” she said. I also asked her if she would like to be apart of the arts. “I am apart of the arts at Binghamton High, but sometimes I want to do more and sometimes I want to do less.” Another student that attends Binghamton, Nafisah Smith, was also asked the same questions. Nafisah said the plays influence her and her friends because they let students see some of the arts programs that are going on at school. When asked if she would like to be apart of the arts program, she said, “Yes, because it gives me more of an opportunity when I get older and will help me decide what I like and do not like.” Hannah Hargus also was asked the same questions and replied that the school play helps influence and spread the arts of the school because it is public, and people who watch it can have more of an idea of the arts. She said that she would like to be apart of the arts at BHS because it looks good on job and college applications, and it’s a privilege.
Renee Stanton, mother of child at Binghamton, was also asked questions. ”I like how the play was offered to the whole community. It gave me a good perspective on how strong the arts are at the school.” I also asked her if she wished she had the same opportunities as student at Binghamton. “Yes! At my school they didn’t have that many opportunities. I would have gotten to experience things more before I got to be an adult and pick what I wanted to do in life.” Linda Clark, an elder of the community, said it helps get the word out about the arts. Linda would also have liked to have had the same opportunities students at Binghamton High have. “I would have learned more and seen and done different things instead of the normal classes you had to take.”
Thus, the arts at Binghamton High School are wonderful. They allow many opportunities for the students and enables students to see what they want to do in the future.
