ASA will provide high quality art and science integration opportunities in an innovative small school community.
The mission of ASA is to provide outstanding artistic and scientific programs.
The arts facilitate the development of critical thinking, communication and problem solving skills. These are essential 21st century workplace skills.
Science is a subject that should be learned through engagement and discovery. Hands on experiments and activities supporting the concepts being learned must be a regular practice and students should experience concepts rather than simply discussing them.
The Art and Science Academy will provide a healthy, safe and nurturing environment where students can learn and enjoy coming to school every day. The entire community will practice caring, supportive and mutually respectful communication and behavior.
Student interest in learning is as essential as student achievement. The arts are an essential component of a quality holistic education; they stimulate student interest and serve as a stage or platform for learning academics.
Comments About ASA:
ASA is a wonderful place where students can learn and grow into independent thinkers. The faculty is amazing and supportive of all the students and is hands on. My kids love going to school and look forward to being in the classroom. Grateful for ASA.
WE love ASA!! The communication, special attention, & relationships we have through ASA are amazing!! More often than not, one of my children come home to tell me about the special adult that impacted their day! They talk about their friends too but the relationships with the teachers, aides and staff at the school – these are impacting my kids in such a positive way! The small community is perfect for us. The world better watch out for these bright children!
The elementary school is exemplary. The students thrive at the elementary school.
I can’t say enough good things about this school/district. Mr. Fitton is clearly a smart guy who knows how to run a school, Mrs. Brady is compassionate and loves the students, and the teachers are some of the best ones I have met in my life. The staff are great too.
