Welcome to the Expressions Learning Arts Academy Website!
Expressions Learning Arts Academy is a public elementary charter school operating under the governance of the State of Florida and the School Board of Alachua County in Gainesville, Florida, USA. This school was created to provide a program of academic excellence enhanced by the arts. Our program utilizes the skills acquired in artistic modalities to refine cognitive ability and promote the acquisition of self discipline.
At Expressions, we promote academic achievement by incorporating the arts, particularly the performing arts, into the basic curriculum outlined by the Florida Sunshine State Standards. While we are able to infuse art into every subject offered, a typical daily schedule focuses on vigorous academic components in the morning, and the rotating arts components of music, drama, dance and visual arts in the afternoon. We believe that these daily art activities are essential in order to enhance the development of skills needed to excel academically. Our methods have a positive effect on the achievement of all children, regardless of their initial skill level, talent, abilities, or previous exposure to the arts.
