What is an arts theme school?

The Arts Integration program will incorportate the visual arts, music, drama, and dance into the four core subject areas. Our resource teachers will assist classroom teachers in planning and teaching hands-on integrated activities that will enhance, not replace, our current curriculum. At Armstrong we take great pride in our dedication toward academic excellence. Adopting the arts theme will not change the academic or behavioral expectations of the school, but will allow students to achieve maximum artistic and academic potential. Our goal of adopting an arts integrated program is to reach the needs of all of our students, so that all Armstrong's students will be successful.

Vision Statement
