Complementary Courses


As a learning-in-and-through the arts school, our complementary courses provide opportunities for students to take up their work as they "think like an artist". Students should be able to identiry what "thinking like an artist" looks like when choosing complementary courses for the year.

Students at Willow Park Learning In-and-Through-The-Arts school have a list of Complementary Courses to choose from. Students are enrolled in 4 Complementary Courses (Band takes up 2 Courses as it is a full year option).

To offer a selection of courses that students like, we surveyed our students in May of 2016 to determine which Complementary Courses students were interested in and or would like. We were able to add several new courses to our list for the 2016 / 2017 school year.

Students indicated their interest in the Complementary Courses offered by rating them 1 - 14 (1 being the course they want the most). As some courses are more popular than others, we do our best to enroll students in their top 8 choices. Students are able to change courses the first two weeks of every term by filling out an Option Request Form from the office.
