Arizona School for the Arts is a unique gem among Arizona schools. We are a 5th grade – 12th-grade non-profit public charter school providing a unique curriculum that interweaves rigorous academics and performing arts – music, theatre, and dance. The correlation between playing music and improved cognition is well-documented. However, beyond crucial cognitive benefits are the immeasurable long-term social and emotional gains. Sustained experiences in the performing arts teach creative problem-solving and build confidence and inclusivity among students. Coupled with our high academic standards and an intellectually stimulating curriculum, ASA is a school like no other.
