    Welcome to Fuentes Elementary, a Fine Arts Focus Campus
    Susie Fuentes Elementary School introduced a fine arts focus in the 2018-2019 school year. In addition to the core academic subjects and quality music and art programs already offered in Hays CISD, students engage in expanded fine arts, performing arts, and humanities opportunities. Fuentes Elementary offers a unique educational experience for students who live in the attendance zone or who are accepted by transfer within Hays CISD.

    Why Focus on Fine Arts, Performing Arts, and Humanities?
    Student involvement in the fine and performing arts can have major benefits in school for everyone:

    • Recent research studies have shown that children who sing, dance, write, act, and create are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement compared to their non-performing peers.

    • Fine arts students have enhanced cognitive, motor, and social development skills.

    • Fine arts students are quick thinkers and become masters of their anxiety.

    • Fine arts students can express new emotions and develop empathy.

    • Fine arts students develop higher self-esteem and advocacy skills and they see the world in new ways because of being exposed to new ways of thinking and doing.
