Our School Vision
The McKay Arts Academy (MAA) is a diverse, Pre K-8 Innovation School that provides a safe and inclusive learning environment. Our students build character, self-confidence, academic and social leadership skills to become creative problem-solvers and responsible, productive citizens.
Our School Goal
McKay's Arts Academy students will use rituals, routines, and appropriate responses that create and maintain a safe and intellectual environment as mElementary:easured by the implementation of all pieces of morning meeting / circle of power and respect on a daily basis.
All teachers will model and remodel at least twice a week, as documented in weekly planners, checklists, lesson plans and observations, the expected behaviors in the classroom, the cafeteria and the playground.
At MAA, the Common Core curriculum is infused with standards based arts integrated projects to foster expression and creativity in all students. All staff members in partnership with parents and community collaborate to provide students appropriate resources to achieve success in all disciplines, and to progress socially and emotionally.
