Our programs combine Standards-based arts instruction with social justice pedagogy principles to inspire students to develop character, scholarship and artistic voice to create change. Our core values of Empower, Create and Connect describe our commitment to teaching for equity, justice and hope. We strive to support students' academic and artistic needs while working toward becoming an anti-racist society.
