Vision Statement
Capistrano Valley High School Instrumental Music
Vision Statement
Develop a program to the highest level such that the students may take the skills developed into all aspects of life.
This will be accomplished by:
1)       Setting positive examples of leadership and dedication through parental involvement.
2)       Creating an environment that nurtures and encourages a student’s individual growth through participation in and appreciation of all forms of music.
3)       Providing an educational experience, both musically and socially, where students learn to develop themselves to their fullest potential.
4)      Learning how to work together in a team environment with students from other instrument families as well as other Capistrano Valley organizations.
