At the Benjamin Franklin Classical Charter Public School, the arts play an important role in the education of our students. We believe in educating the whole child, and that children benefit greatly from opportunities to express themselves creatively through the arts.
Active engagement in the arts and an arts-infused interdisciplinary Core Knowledge Curriculum contributes to the development of holistically educated students who are better able to solve problems, use their imaginations, develop critical-thinking skills and enjoy life. These experiences also provide students with the cognitive and affective skills with which to explore and understand more about themselves and the world.
We are committed to providing every student with a comprehensive arts curriculum that promotes artistic learning, exploration and expression.
