The Lowell Public Schools, along with Middlesex Community College and UMass Lowell recently announced another Pathway. The Fine Arts Pathway, spanning grades K through 16, and offering over 40 electives at Lowell High School alone, promotes the 21st century skills of collaboration, creativity,critical-thinking, problem-solving and communication.
This initiative allows us to harness the power of the arts to teach important 21st century skills and supports components of both the Governor’s Readiness Project and the 21st Century Skills Initiative. Embodying Lowell’s historic logo “Art is the Handmaid of Human Good” this pathway will allow students to learn in and through the arts and to develop their artistic potential through a rigorous Fine Arts education across all grade levels.
