Turnaround Arts. Creating Success in Schools

Turnaround arts at Northport Elementary

Northport Elementary was selected as a Turnaround Arts Schools around in 2014. Turnaround Arts is a national program created by the President’s Committee on the Arts and on the Humanities under the Obama administration. This program involves partnering with local, state and national organizations to provide a variety of arts experiences for students.

Turnaround Arts is a public-private partnership that uses the arts to help narrow the achievement gap, increase student engagement and improve the culture and climate...

Through these partnerships we have received the following support:

- Visual art materials

- Musical instruments

- Production rights for a yearly play

- Professional Development for staff

- Teaching artists (including visits from high-profile artists throughout the year)

As a Turnaround Arts School, we are able to enrich our instruction in addition to providing extracurricular experiences for students.We have set goals to not only integrate the arts throughout our school, but to also increase family and community involvement.
