Teachers provide daily opportunities for all students to use their imaginations and to demonstrate their skills, knowledge and understanding in the core subject areas by integrating arts-infused curriculum and instruction. It seeks to enhance teacher motivation, creativity, and reflective classroom practice.
IN OUR SCHOOLS
"Arts-integrated schools make clear that the arts are not just affective and expressive. They are deeply cognitive. They develop essential tools of thinking: pattern recognition & development; qualitative judgment; symbolic, metaphoric, and allegorical representation. These same thinking tools are used in science, philosophy, math, and history."
