Marshall ISD's Fine Arts programs incorporate the study of dance, music, theatre and the visual arts to offer unique experiences and empower students to explore realities, relationships and ideas.

These disciplines engage and motivate all students through active learning, critical thinking, and innovative problem solving. The fine arts develop cognitive functioning and increase student academic achievement, higher-order thinking, communication, and collaboration skills, making the fine arts applicable to college readiness, career opportunities, workplace environments, social skills, and everyday life. Students develop aesthetic and cultural awareness through exploration, leading to creative expression. Creativity, encouraged through the study of the fine arts, is essential to nurture and develop the whole child.

Marshall ISD's Fine Arts programs have a long history of success and have brought a tremendous amount of pride over the years to Marshall.

The "Big Red Pride" Maverick Band is a Sweepstakes-award winner, and the MISD Choir program has been a consistent source of pride and accomplishment for several generations of students who have earned Sweepstakes honors as a group and All-State recognition individually.

MISD's Orchestra program continues to grow in both numbers and in honors, and the MHS Theatre Department has made tremendous strides over recent years to become a very solid contributor to the overall success of the Fine Arts department in MISD.

Our students are talented, our students are driven, and our teachers accept nothing less than the best in MISD Fine Arts! Concerts and performances are always open to the public. Unless otherwise noted concerts are on the individual school campuses.

TEXAS ESSENTIAL KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS FOR FINE ARTS
The Curriculum Standards and Students Support Division of the Texas Education Agency provides direction and leadership for the state’s public school art, dance, music, and theatre programs for Kindergarten through grade 12. The division's staff facilitate various fine arts statewide initiatives, including implementation of the fine arts Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and assistance to the TEA Division of Instructional Materials for the adoption process for fine arts instructional materials.

In April 2013, the State Board of Education gave final approval to revised fine arts TEKS for Kindergarten through grade 12. The revised fine arts TEKS were implemented in the 2015-2016 school year.
