Vision:
Through our Arts, we are proud of our Smarts!

Mission:
Mary McArthur AElementary School is dedicated to integrating the Arts, providing a safe and positive environment as well as having high expectations to ensure our Cardinals are prepared for college.

Mary McArthur A+ Elementary School is a whole-school reform model that views the arts as fundamental to teaching and learning in all subjects.  Mary McArthur A+ combines interdisciplinary teaching and daily arts instruction, offering children opportunities to develop creative, innovative ways of thinking, learning and showing what they know.  In our school, teaching the state’s mandated curriculum involves a collaborative, many-disciplined approach, with the arts continuously woven into every aspect of a child’s learning.

The central vision of A+ is to build enhanced, creative, arts-integrated learning opportunities for all students. For Mary McArthur, A+ gradually becomes a comprehensive education reform because of other changes in school practice, in areas from assessment to scheduling and collaboration to parent involvement, radiate out as necessary to achieve this central vision. Each A+ School develops a unique school identity around the arts that deepens and enhances each student’s educational experience and prepares them for the challenges of today’s creative and global economy.

On-going, high-quality A+ professional development and the development of strong community partnerships help us to maintain our unique A+ identity while continuing to grow and change as shifts in the educational landscape take place.

Our evaluators have consistently found that A+ Schools have been able to respond to accountability standards in both effective and creative ways, meeting standards in N.C.’s high-stakes testing program without narrowing the curriculum by deeply integrating the arts into instruction.
