Highland Arts Elementary

Highland Arts Elementary is dedicated to an arts integrated curriculum. Our school is the "arts school of choice" for Mesa Unified School District. We believe that thinking like an artist allows students to engage fully in the learning process, explore knowledge and feelings through the arts, and become a confident capable citizen.

Throughout the classrooms visual, dramatic, and musical arts are purposely integrated into the academic subject areas. The walls inside and outside the building are covered with murals created by the children and local artists. In some areas even the ceilings have art displays!

Included in our focus of arts in education, we also emphasize educational technology. Morning announcements are created by our Highland Hurricane News staff. Students have the opportunity to learn how to create audio and video performances, as well as many other arts and academic activities.

Highland Arts is a school that is meeting the needs of the whole child. Our belief is that arts enhance education, and that quality learning takes place when the academics and arts are integrated.
