Do I have to take art in high school?

Do I have to take art in high school? Topic: a-g requirments

Question: I really, really, really hate art classes. My reasons? It's not really art if your creating something that someone else wants you too. Since..you know, art is supposed to be a way to express YOURSELF.. and I had to take it from kinder-5th grade. So do I absolutely HAVE to take it in high school?

It depends on where you are. In CA, the public and private schools make sure that the kids do their A - G requirements. Those are the requirements of the UCs and Cal States (state colleges), like UCLA, Cal State LA, etc. They state how many years of math, English, etc the student must take for admission into the college. One of those requirements is a full year of one Art. Not art, but one Art. My son is taking drama at his private school for the full year. They offer chorus, ceramics, drawing, painting, jazz band, dance, photography, etc. So check with your state's college system and see what their requirements are. Likely art, like drawing or painting, won't be your only choice. Private schools also follow these requirements, although they may want more, like 3 or 4 years of one foreign language, instead of 2 years. Some art classes actually encourage you to express yourself, it depends on the teacher. Good luck!

Hanael Originally Answered: In a sentence, not at the beginning, would i capitalize High School? or would the sentence be high school?
No, it would be lower cased - so high school. It would be capitalized if it was part of a school's name. Like Riverdale High School or something like that. Not when in just normal basic use.

No, keep it in the lower case. The only time to capitalize that would be if you were talking about a specific high school, such as New York High School. The general words are not capitalized. :)

High School is only capitalized at the beginning of a sentence, or when used as a proper noun, such as "Washington High School."

Usually in high schools you don't have to take art. It's an elective, as long as you take something else...like dance or sculpture. Yeah I agree with you 100% that's why I don't take art at me school. You can even talk to your counsoler and they can give you alternative classes that you can take as well. Good luck :)

Hmmm. High School. All i know is that im excited to get out. Haha. As far as stories go, I have a lot. People look at you weird if you don't wear what everyone else wear, but don't let that stop you. People will like you for being yourself. The whole "stuffed in trashcan" in false. I have never heard of that happening, especially to girls, so don't worry about bullies. Overall, have fun =] And its good that you care about the way you look AND have good grades. I'm the same way. Good Luck.
