Parents as Partners

We believe art is more than just a tool for education. In all its forms, art inspires individuals to think critically about their own culture and environment. It encourages the thoughtful expression of an individual’s principles and ideas. 

With integration of education and the arts, ArtSpace generates a vibrant, active community of individuals who are changing the world for the better, and having a great time in the process.  We welcome you to our community of learning!

ArtSpace Charter School is a school of choice.  We appreciate that you have chosen us and trusted us with your child’s education.  Your partnership in education is invaluable.  Please review our community contract and support us in upholding the Four Pillars:  Respect, Leadership, Effort, & Service.  The faculty and staff at ArtSpace are committed to these values and to ensuring a safe, positive learning environment with opportunities for all students to learn, grow, and thrive.

Garrett’s Law

Garrett’s law was enacted in 2004.  It mandates schools provide parents and guardians with information about meningococcal meningitis and influenza and the vaccines that protect against these diseases. The law was expanded in 2007 to mandate that information also be provided about human papillomavirus (HPV) and the vaccines available to protect against HPV.
