Four Seasons: An Arts+ Magnet
Four Seasons is committed to using the arts to provide curriculum and instruction that are integrated, experiential, and designed to tap into Multiple Intelligences. We teach in ways that children learn.The A+ program at Four Seasons combines interdisciplinary teaching and daily arts instruction to create a third entity: a powerful learning force that positively affects all students in the school through hands-on, interactive learning experiences.
The four premises on which an A+ program is based are:
- Students respond best to interdisciplinary teaching when it involves hands-on, interactive experiences in the classroom that are challenging and enjoyable.
- The arts build community in diverse classrooms.
- Students demonstrate learning in a variety of ways.
- Students gain confidence and are encouraged to explore unfamiliar subject areas when teachers recognize the students' special skills.
We provide a unique learning experience that combines daily arts instruction in four areas - visual arts, music, dance and theater.
