Julie Ward

Principal

We have a wonderful opportunity to provide an enriched educational experience to our students through exposure and exploration in the Fine Arts. When students learn to express themselves through instruments, song, voice, art, and movement, connections are made with learning that might not otherwise occur. We have a skilled and talented staff of academic and special area teachers that provides meaningful learning to each child. While it is our goal for all students to master the essential Florida Standards of each grade level in English & Language Arts, Math, Science, an Social Studies, and the Fine Arts, the learning doesn't stop there. The Arts support personal development in project-based learning, learning to press on through something new until it is mastered through practice, perseverance, and preparation for performance. The staff of Rochelle School of the Arts thanks our families for choosing RSA, and we are looking forward to a great year!
