The Arts: A Way to Learn, A Way to Live!
The mission of Gilbert Academy of Creative Arts, in partnership with the community, is to enrich the learning experience by empowering students to demonstrate depth of knowledge through exploration and expression of their own unique creative abilities. Gilbert strives to create a nurturing learning environment which encourages students to participate in and learn through the arts. We strongly believe that the arts are both a way to learn and a way to live. We also strive to establish and maintain a shared vision for authentic arts integrated instruction and a climate for teacher learning and collaboration. We are consistently working on infusing artistic and creative methodologies that address both the mission statement and the magnet focus. The authentic integration of the arts into content areas and school-wide events strongly encourages and supports students' academic success and positive character development.
