Success Secret:
Creating an arts centered learning experience through full arts integration, offering Visual and Performing Arts opportunities best expresses our vision. Arts speaks to and “nurtures hearts” and makes it possible to bridge differences and “build relationships.” Arts expression through music, dance theater and media promotes the highest levels of cultivating and “growing minds.” This promotes a safe, welcoming, and equitable learning culture from which all students develop an educational foundation for a clear pathway to college and career readiness.
