Arts integration is the use of programs that bring critical thinking, creativity, and innovation into the classroom by integrating core content subjects such as science, technology, literacy, and the humanities with the arts to enhance school curriculum and deepen learning.
Our framework supports all students in achieving rigorous academic standards while addressing the whole child. Our approach is particularly successful for disadvantaged students who include; English language learners (ELL), low-income students, students of color, those with adverse childhood experiences (ACE), those with learning, behavioral, developmental, or physical disabilities, and those with varied learning strengths such as dyslexia. We have found that struggling students find themselves re-engaged in our programs, while more advanced students demonstrate accelerated learning and sustained levels of motivation.
