Our School

Moreland MuralAt Moreland Arts and Health Sciences Magnet School (teaching kindergarten through grade 4), we combine energy and creativity to boost academic achievement for all students. Our unique combination of Arts and Health Sciences enables us to emphasize creativity and healthy living. Students are encouraged to be active, eat well and participate in many types of art – visual arts, music, theater and dance. Research shows that students who are involved in regular exercise and have healthy diets are better able to learn. Additionally, arts are a proven way to boost academic achievement.

WHAT'S A MAGNET SCHOOL?
Magnet schools integrate specialized themes (magnet programs) that are designed to meet the learning interests and strengths of each child. Students receive instruction in all core-subject areas, but the special theme is embedded throughout the curriculum. Magnet schools are open to all students.
