Success Secret:
Rockdale Visual and Performing Arts Magnet is an Arts Bravo Award-Winning School. All students receive instruction in each discrete art form, and teachers integrate the arts throughout the curriculum in order to reach students through multiple learning modalities and make learning active and interactive. The arts program includes instruction in the visual arts, drama, dance, and vocal & instrumental music by classroom teachers and credentialed arts teachers. Students’ learning in the arts is further supported by our community partnerships (i.e. The Huntington, LA Opera, Story Pirates, Dancing Classrooms,& more). Students participate in numerous curricular and arts-related field trips. Our goal is to expand our students’ access to the arts while reaching higher levels of critical thinking, creativity, and academic achievement.
