Elementary School Academics
A+ Arts Academy Elementary School uses the A-Beka curriculum for reading and math for grades K-5. The A-Beka phonics and whole language approach to learning is best for the students we will serve. From phonics our students will learn the basic sounds of our language and their ability to code and decode unknown words will easily lessen the energy necessary to use memory and, instead, will focus more on comprehending the material presented. Data from the U.S. Government indicate that phonics trained students are more likely to become efficient readers and enjoy reading in their future.
The A-Beka Math will assist in the mastery of fundamental operation of story problems, problem solving strategies, place value of whole numbers and decimals, measurements, time, and money. This basic concept builds from year to year beginning with number recognition in the kindergarten.
A+ Arts Academy Elementary School offers a quality alternative and unique opportunity for students. We enhance your child’s learning by incorporating arts and other hands-on, project based activities as well as a full music, fitness and dance curriculum.
A+ Arts Academy Elementary School has created an environment that promotes academic success while limiting the negative influences that exist in our community. We have developed a school-wide Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) that rewards students for positive behavior and promotes self-discipline. We team with our parents, community and students to embody our school-wide rules, daily affirmations and our “12-inch” rule that guides and governs student behavior that is clearly explained and consistently enforced.
