APS elementary schools Fine Arts programs alternate years- one year with Music and the next year with Art.
Our elementary program focuses on K-5 students with the following goals:
- All elementary students will be provided with an annual arts experience delivered by teachers who meet “highly qualified” criteria.
- All students will meet expectations for grade-appropriate basic skills and competencies in general music and visual arts.
- All students will be provided with opportunities to develop and express their creativity and enhance their critical thinking and problem-solving skills through the arts.
- All classroom teachers will be provided with a variety of professional development opportunities to expand their knowledge of best practices in arts education and the instructional benefits of arts integration across the curriculum.
