Highland Arts Elementary Goes Beyond the Basics
An Arts Integration school incorporating aesthetic education
Aesthetic Education Perspective
Highland staff emphasize 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 beginning inJuly of 2014 and continuing in 2017, teachers develop and implement arts integration lessons tied directly to English Language Arts, Social Studies, Math, and Science Standards.
Highland Teachers are trained in Engineering is Elementary, making our school unique in the district for approaching both engineering and arts education in a blended environment. We have also added in a Robotics and STEAM after school club.
Highland Staff tours Art Studio
