Salvador Elementary commits to the artistic process, creativity, communication, collaboration and critical thinking as the model for learning across disciplines while inspiring our diverse community with a passion for curiosity.
Salvador is an Artful Learning School! This comprehensive school model is specially designed to engage students at a deeper level of inquiry and understanding than can be achieved with standard educational approaches. By providing educators with a unique framework to present academic content, Artful Learning links the arts and the artistic process to the daily classroom learning experience. Artful Learning employs an interdisciplinary approach that is anchored by a central Concept while posing a Significant Question that allow educators to teach a broad spectrum of rigorous academic content. Studying through the lens of the arts generates a measurably deeper level of comprehension and retention in students. Students explore the content as they experience, inquire, create, and reflect.
