  • Global Arts Plus lays a foundation for creativity and exploration in the arts spanning a child’s first classroom experience through middle school. 

  • Beginning at our PreK-4 Lower Campus, children embrace their identity as emerging artists with daily music, dance, drama, or visual arts classes.

  • Students join the Upper Campus in grade 5 and smoothly transition to our middle school program in grade 6.

  • Leadership experiences, athletics and after-school programs support students as they step into new responsibilities and challenging academics. 

  • Our artist-in-residence programs enlist diverse voices and talents; students may learn flamenco dancing, Taiko drumming, poetry and more. 

  • Students continue their artistic evolution and showcase their learning at Friday Gatherings, a weekly event that builds community among our young artists.

  • An active Parent Teacher Association (PTA) plans yearly school-wide events such as plant sales, carnivals and supports our school's artist-in-residence programs.

We offer:

  • Pre-K (full-day)

  • Language Academy

  • Extended Day for Learning (EDL) for grades 2-8

  • Discovery Club (fee-based, off-site)

  • AVID for grades 5-8

  • World Languages: Spanish (grades 5-8)
