The American International School of Muscat believes that the Arts help us to ask deep questions about humanity. It fills a need in us that transcends age, ethnicity and geography. Knowledge of the Arts liberates and shapes our capacity for expression; it enriches our lives and creates cultural bonds. The Arts teach us how to handle ambiguity and lends an understanding that in life there is not always one answer.
The Arts are a bridge we cross to deeper understanding of attributes that are intrinsic to humans, such as imagination and the instinct to create. We believe that the need for expression through the Arts is basic to all people and common to all cultures and times. Therefore, understanding and capacity in the Arts is essential to being an educated person.
