Technology & Creativity

Technology, when used correctly, has proven to increase engagement and achievement. Research has shown that technology integration has to be well-planned and it must be used to create, not consume digital media. 

Project Based Learning

We believe that the best way for students to learn is for them to use knowledge, inquiry, and creativity. So each year we have four major projects that are school-wide events attended by hundreds of children, parents, and community members. 

Four Tracks of Digital Arts

All students are exposed to audio engineering, video production, print media, and coding/robotics during their time in the program. As students progress into eighth great, they become specialists in one of the four tracks producing the school broadcast, radio show, or enter competitions as coding & robotics specialist. 

Special & Advanced Courses

Students have the opportunity to gain high school credits through courses such as Algebra 1, Geometry, Spanish, Digital Media Art I, II, & III.
