MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the James Island Charter High School Band Program is to make a positive difference in the lives of band members by creating a family-like atmosphere, focusing on the "individual" musician, and providing meaningful musical experiences, all while helping members achieve their full potential as musicians and people.
