About Napoleon Campus
The A+ Arts Academy Napoleon Campus is a diverse, interactive school providing a safe environment and foundation for life-long learning. We actively promote academics through infusion of the arts and encourage scholars to strive for excellence in all aspects of academics and their life.
We offer core academic classes which meet the needs of each scholar. Our core content classes are aligned to the State of Ohio academic standards and are enhanced by art and extracurricular activities. In addition to the standard classroom, scholars will do projects in language arts, visual arts, social studies, science and math.
The Napoleon Campus sits on 5 beautiful acres with mature trees and features a gymnasium, large classrooms, a performance stage, wireless technology, Smart Boards and mobile laptop labs. Class sizes are smaller to better serve the diverse educational needs of our scholars.
In addition to mathematics, language arts, social studies and science, the A+ Arts Academy Napoleon Campus offers a wide variety of elective courses including: financial literacy, health, creative writing, journalism, desktop publishing, life skills, physical education and technology.
Our scholars are offered the opportunity to learn, create, and participate in projects that use various computer hardware and software for homework, business, desktop publishing, web design, or even devise and invent robotics.
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. Scholars can also learn desktop publishing and journalism through hands-on experience in our yearbook and newspaper electives.
Our physical education program prepares scholars to have a healthy and active lifestyle and for participation in social and lifetime activities by helping them acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to continue with these activities. We provide opportunities to explore sports, fitness and other activities and discover how their bodies move while improving their self-confidence.
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 Napoleon Campus explore the world of art through ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, drama, choir, band, dance, flags, and other means of artistic expression. A+ Arts Academy 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, choreographing, storytelling, acting, drawing, sculpting, painting, photographing, web designing and more.
Small performances and art displays are given regularly and at least one larger production is 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.
