Welcome to the Division of

Fine Arts & World Languages!

My name is Megan Bennett, the District Division Chair of Fine Arts and World Languages at District 156.

  • In the MCHS Fine Arts and World Language Division, we are committed to creating cultured warriors. The World Languages' mission is to prepare students to communicate within and contribute to a global society, while the Fine Arts strive to cultivate students who create, perform, produce, and respond, while connecting with self, society, culture, and history.


“The most intimate temper of a people, its deepest soul, is above all in its language.”

― Jules Michelet

My name is Michele Zimmerman and I am the Divisional Assistant of Fine Arts and World Languages at McHenry Community High School District 156. As a strong leader and advocate for the arts, I whole-heartedly embrace every opportunity to integrate art, dance, drama, & music into our school culture.


“The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world.”
