Open House

Join us for a virtual open house to learn about how an arts-based education will inspire your child to think more creatively, work collaboratively with teachers and peers, and grow to be a future innovator. It is proven that arts integration in the classroom increases academic and emotional success!

This event was hosted LIVE on Facebook by our Principal, Betsy Compton. She introduces some of our amazing teachers, shows you our classrooms in action, gives you glimpses of performances, and answers your questions in a live Q&A session.
