Changing Education Through the Arts
Hunters Woods Elementary School for the Arts and Sciences is proud to have been selected as one of 16 schools in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area to be a member of the Kennedy Center's Changing Education Through the Arts (CETA) program. Our school's partnership with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, which began in 1999, helps teachers develop their expertise in integrating the arts with the teaching of other school subjects (such as history, language arts, science). This focus on arts-integrated instruction is designed to help all students learn with greater motivation and ease. To that end, the Kennedy Center and the schools work together to develop, implement, and evaluate an in-depth staff development program of courses, workshops, coaching, and study groups.
