Aesthetic Education Perspective
Highland staff is re-emphasizing an aesthetic education approach to complement our STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). This allows us to round out our program and create a STEAM environment (A being Arts).
Following our Lincoln Center Education Training in July of 2014, teachers have developed and implemented arts integration lessons tied directly to English Language Arts, Social Studies, Math, and Science Standards.
Highland Teachers had already been trained in Engineering in the Elementary Schools, making our school unique in the district for approaching both engineering and arts education in a blended environment.
