The Arts and Humanities Academy curriculum is designed to inspire greater levels of academic achievement by linking student interest and talent in the arts to all aspects of their educational experience. By tapping into their strengths as artists, teachers lead students to improve their overall skills in reading, writing and science. AHA is particularly concerned with bridging the achievement gap and providing a challenging curriculum for all of our students.
