Theatre In Our Schools

An essential component of a well-rounded education, theatre teaches critical 21st-century life skills such as collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. SFUSD offers theatre classes and programs at every level.  Elementary schools are served by theatre teachers, theatre Artists in Residence, and theatre organizations. Middle and High schools offer courses in Theatre and Technical Theatre. See the Offerings section below for more information.

The theatre standards are designed to enable students to achieve literacy in theatre. These grade-by-grade standards articulate the most fundamental elements of theatre, delineating a path by which every student can and will achieve proficiency or beyond in this ancient and honorable craft.

Developing literacy in theatre means discovering the expressive elements of theatre, knowing the terminology that is used to comprehend theatre, having a clear sense of what theatre embodies, and being able to reflect, critique, and connect personal experience to theatre.
