Learning is not tied down to 9-3 or just in the classroom, but extends beyond the end of the school day. Student curiosity and imagination doesn’t end at the bell so why should the opportunities to explore new subjects.
We recognize the arts as windows to the world; exposing children to new ideas, cultures and places- empowering them to become strong, independent leaders of tomorrow. We also believe that every child should be given the opportunity for fitness, leadership, and athletic competition whether they are a stand-out athlete or not. Thus, our students are provided the means to acquire and hone artistic and athletic skills by our experienced specialists in the areas of the arts such as dance, drama, visual, music, and a variety of sports and fitness activities.
Research shows that the arts and physical activity enhance the learning process. The systems they nourish include integrated sensory, cognitive, emotional and motor capabilities, which are the driving forces behind all other learning. Thus, students who are exposed to the arts & fitness are more creative thinkers, better problem solvers, achieve higher grades, have increased success on standardized tests, and have a higher self-esteem.
ASE is the After School Enrichment Clubs, Drama, STEAM, Lego, Band, Destination Imagination, and Glee, offered in Impact Point. These Clubs target areas that continue the excitement after the school day has ended and are in areas that help students realize their full potential.
