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.
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.
Expanding our working relationships with our Community Partners, professional development in Professional Learning Communities (PLC) facilitation, arts-integrated project-based learning and writing across content areas are key components of teacher -identified professional development. These will provide a common language and shared strategies spiraling across school grade levels which will positively impact student learning.
