Statement of the problen4 The purposes of this study were (1) to examine the concepts and recommendations underlying the organization of a comprehensive school and their implications for certain areas of the humanities; (2) to investigate the interrelationships in the arts of music, architecture, sculpture, and painting from philosophical and aesthetic viewpoints; and (3) to formulate a course of study for a comprehensive high school for developing understanding and appreciation of accomplishments in music and art. Method of procedure. This study outlined an approach to a better understanding of the methods by which the interrelatedness of the arts can contribute to the needs and changes of society through the American comprehensive high school. It similarly presented the values of an interrelated art course for all students. Selected periodicals, publications of learned organizations, professional education texts, histories of music and art, and unpublished documents were essential in the development of this study. The importance of the study was emphasized by a need for flexible and well-balanced school programs adapted to the needs of each individual student. It was found that such a well-balanced organization could be developed through the comprehensive high school, which endeavors to teach all children regardless of class or background the values of democracy and social integration. It further endeavors to broaden and develop the intellectual, emotional, and creative potentials of the student, through a cultural as well as a scientific background [TRUNCATED].
