Opened in 2013, Young Audiences Charter School at Kate Middleton is an open enrollment, arts-integrated charter school on the Westbank of Jefferson Parish. Enrollment is open to any Jefferson Parish student entering Kindergarten through 5th grade. The school will add one grade each academic year to serve students in grades K-8 by Fall 2018. 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. (PAIR, 2013) Additionally, students involved in the arts are more likely to have better attendance, fewer behavior referrals, and increased class participation.
