At our school, academic subjects are taught with the same rigor and to the same standard as in other district elementary schools; the difference at Chief Joseph is that art is integrated into all subject matter.
Our school’s mission is to pursue excellence in academics, the arts, and character development. Through the arts, our students develop the skills, creativity, and self-confidence to become excellent students and citizens. We are happy to talk with you about our students’ experiences and success here at Chief Joseph.
Educational research shows that an arts’ focused education helps students become better readers and problem solvers, especially when that art instruction is integrated into the school's curriculum. Through an arts-infused curriculum, students learn to utilize the higher-order thinking skills such as critical thinking, analyzing, and decision-making that will help them throughout their lives.
