Class of 2025
Welcome to West Aurora High School! There is a long tradition of excellence in the Fine Arts at West High, and we can't wait for your to become part of our Fine Arts family!
All of our freshman Art classes are a semester long. If you plan on taking more than one Art class in high school, we recommend that you take both Digital Art and Visual Art to be ready for anything and everything we have to offer at West High. However, if you already know what you'd like to try, you can take a level 1 course in the spring of your freshman year. Some possible pathways:
Continue playing your instrument at West High! By joining West Aurora Bands, you’ll play four concerts a year and have the opportunity to join the Marching Band, Pep Band, and/or one of our jazz bands! Simply register for Freshman Band to get involved!
Join the choir family at West High! With almost 300 students in West High Choirs, there’s something for everybody. Continue singing at West to sharpen your skills or join the choirs to learn how to read music and sing better. Treble voices register for Bel Canto Choir; Tenor and bass voices register for Varsity Singers.
Register for Digital Music Production 1 & 2 and you'll use professional grade audio recording and editing software to learn the basics of songwriting and music composition. No matter what style of music you like listening to, these classes will help you understand how your favorite styles of music are created and how you can create them yourself.
Whether you like being in the spotlight or running the light board, our Theatre classes are for you! Both Theatre Arts and Intro to Acting are recommended for those that wish to continue taking performance classes at West. If you are interested in Stage Crew, set design, lighting, or audio engineering, then take Theatre Tech and Design all year to learn how the theatre works from the inside-out.
