Arts Integration Campus

Bransford Elementary School is on the journey to becoming an arts integrated campus, with the goal of using the arts to leverage learning in all subject areas. “Arts integration is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form and another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both.“ (The Kennedy Center).

Using arts integration as an approach to teaching, Bransford will extend and enrich students through the use of the creative process in all areas of the school day. Furthermore, arts integration will provide students and staff a framework for looking at learning differently as we move from the teaching platform to the learning platform while simultaneously developing and fostering the Portrait of a Graduate skills.
