Overview of the Arts Pathway

Arts Magnet School’s design will fulfill its Mission and Vision as well as Connecticut’s goal that “all students graduate and are prepared for lifelong learning and careers in a competitive, global economy.” Therefore, Arts Magnet School is in a unique position to provide “a rigorous, literacy-based curriculum linked to authentic, real-life experiences; performance-based assessments; a school climate in which personal and social responsibility is practiced; and school-business partnerships that offer students tangible knowledge and experience.”

Academic Achievement

Students who attend our Arts Pathway schools experience an academic program where rigorous academics are infused through the arts. Using the HOT Schools model of strong arts, arts integration and democratic practice, our students are exposed to and immersed in the arts including vocal and instrumental music, visual art, dance, theatre, media arts, and interdisciplinary arts. 

Community Partnerships

Visiting artists and local organizations bring professional rigor to the arts programming. These partners include: Spark Makerspace, Expressiones Cultural Arts Center, Lyman Allyn Museum, Garde Arts Center, Eastern Connecticut Ballet, Flock Theatre, and HOT Schools Master Teaching Artists.
