IAA as Lab School for VT Teaching Artists
IAA, in partnership with multiple arts and higher education organizations, serves as a lab school for teaching artists from across the State.  First semester the artists the teaching artists engage in a graduate level course using IAA for observations and participation to improve their practice in a public school setting.

They learn more about teaching through the arts, arts integration, and Universal Design for Learning, (UDL).  Second semester some of them offer and teach arts residencies to our students.  Read more about it in this Seven Days piece.

Prospective Parent Visits and Information Sessions
New Student Registration Has Begun-- come visit our schools!

IF THE LAST TWO SCHEDULED TOURS DO NOT WORK FOR YOU (March 17 and 19), CONTACT THE SCHOOL TO SCHEDULE A VISIT

Registration is open from now to March 21, 2014. The week of April 28, 2014, families will be notified about placement. If there are more first choice registrations than there are spots, we will look at families’ 2nd choices. When a student doesn’t receive their first choice school, a district employee will contact the family to discuss their options for schools.


Since our magnet schools offer a thematic approach, formally scheduled presentation and visitation dates are offered. Many of the scheduled assemblies and events at each of our schools are open to new families. To visit our school for a tour, contact the school principal, Bobby Riley, via the main office at 864-8475.
