The Young Audiences Charter School at Kate Middleton invites prospective students along with their families to attend an open house session to learn more about the school on Thursday, January 29 at 6:30 pm or Saturday, January 31 at 10am. The sessions will be held at Young Audiences Charter School, 1407 Virgil Street in Gretna.
“We are pleased to be a part of this diverse community and to continue to provide a high-quality, open enrollment, arts integrated education for all children, said School Leader Folwell Dunbar. Young Audiences Charter School also invites prospective students and families to schedule a tour of the school if they cannot attend either of the Open Houses.
Recent research shows that students at schools with an arts integrated curriculum scored higher on standardized tests and academic measures than those at other types of schools, including academic magnet schools. Additionally, students highly involved in the arts are more likely to have improved grades, better standardized test scores, and increased class participation.
Young Audiences Charter School at Kate Middleton is open to any Jefferson Parish student entering Kindergarten through 5th grade. Each following academic year, the school will add one grade to serve students in grades K-8 by Fall 2018.
