About ELAA

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.

Expressions Learning Arts Academy is an A-rated public elementary charter school operating under the governance of the State of Florida and the School Board of Alachua County in Gainesville, Florida, USA. Expressions is a not-for-profit corporation with 501C-3 status.

We would like to thank the Florida Department of Education, and the School Board of Alachua County for their support. We especially thank our faculty, staff, families, friends, and our WONDERFUL students for believing in us and working with us to make learning exciting, successful, creative and fun!
