What is Theatre Education?

Jeffco Theatre teachers are dedicated to providing students with opportunities to realize their vision while developing critical thinking skills, finding themselves and their place in this world, and creating experiences that last a lifetime. Content is not the sole focus of Theatre Education in Jeffco.  Jeffco Public Schools are committed to providing students with a well-rounded education and opportunities to participate in experiential learning through Theatre education.

 

Why Theatre Education?

In 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act classified the arts, including Theatre, as core subjects.  Researchers have found that sustained learning in Theatre correlates to greater success in math and reading, and students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds see the greatest benefits. Participation in Theatre education enables students to embrace the full range of the human experience and develop a myriad of skills directly applicable to a variety of future life opportunities.
