WELCOME TO A+ ARTS ACADEMY FAIR CAMPUS K-6!
About Fair Campus
At A+ Arts Academy Fair Campus, it is our mission to develop high-achieving scholars who will be successful in academics and the arts. We have talented and experienced teachers that spend countless hours dedicating themselves to their craft and career. Our teachers use research-based strategies based on gathered data to drive their instruction to raise scholar achievement in the classroom.
The Fair Campus is nestled by Franklin Park Conservatory and is close to downtown Columbus. Sitting on 3 acres, we have a gymnasium with a performance stage, 20 classrooms and a large beautiful fenced-in playground. We also have wireless technology, smart boards and mobile laptop labs.
In addition to math, language arts, social studies and science, A+ Arts Academy Fair Campus offers a wide variety of additional courses including: financial literacy, health, visual arts, drama, choir, creative writing, life skills, technology and physical education.
Our creative writing class includes all forms of written artistic expression – poetry, short story writing, article writing, Haiku, novellas and other forms of writing. We offer our creative writers an outlet to develop and, if they wish, to share their creative writing gifts with others.
Our school also sworks to hone in on individual student learning and growth. Reading Advantage Program is one of the many key initiatives that help our scholars realize their potential and be able to use education to change their futures. The goal of this program is to improve reading proficiency by at least 10 percent each year and ultimately beat the district and beat the state. Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Instruction is an evidence-based comprehensive, systematic design for high-quality literacy instruction and a standardized approach to providing tier 2 instruction. At the beginning of the year, every scholar will be assessed using the F&P Benchmark Assessment System (BAS). Scholars are then grouped based on their level. RIs travel throughout the day, working with two groups of scholars in every class they visit for thirty minutes per group.
Overall, we feel that all scholars should be prepared for the demands of post-secondary education, meaningful careers and effective leadership in their respective communities.
PLUS (Arts-Enhanced Education)
Scholars at A+ Arts Academy Fair Campus explore the world of art through ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, drama, choir, band, dance, flags, and other means of artistic expression. Our arts program is designed to provide an expansive collection of experiences in the visual and performing arts.
Scholars will be able to learn different mediums and then be able to display and perform before a variety of audiences, with a continuous focus on creative expression, self-discipline and self-confidence. Each grade level will have an opportunity to spend time singing, drumming, making and playing instruments of their own, dancing, storytelling, acting, drawing, sculpting, painting and more.
Small performances and art displays are given regularly and at least one larger production shared as a school-wide evening event. Additional opportunities, such as drum-line, drill team and private music lessons for various instruments are offered during the after school hours for those who wish to supplement their performing arts education. Success is measured not merely in the mastery of specific skills, but, more importantly, in how much confidence each child has gained.
