SmART Schools is a K -12 research-based, comprehensive, whole-school reform initiative that places arts-infused communities of learning at the fulcrum. This model provides daily opportunities for all students to engage in, and demonstrate skills, knowledge, and understandings in and through the arts. SmART Schools is a powerful mechanism for continuous school improvement that supports schools in the implementation of key state and local education standards and reform practices. This model is eclectic, incorporating, and frequently moving beyond, the strongest features and best practices of the most highly respected leading arts-in-education models and whole-school change efforts.
