The population sizes around South Dakota affect the way students learn. Arts education and extra-curricular activities differ in rural and urban communities.

Faith is one of many towns people cross driving through the yellow grass fields and farmlands off of highway 212 in South Dakota. The U.S. Census reported 421 residents in Faith in 2010, so it’s a small town compared to Sioux Falls or Rapid City. Over 150 students between preschool and high school levels learn in the same building.

Faith School requires each child to take a high school art credit before graduating.
