Moreland became an Arts and Health Sciences Magnet School in 2010 after receiving a grant from the Federal Department of Education's Magnet Schools Assistance Program. Students in Kindergarten through Grade 4 at Moreland learn an arts-infused curriculum supported by effective practices in health and fitness, which helps energize students while giving them tools for lifelong learning.
The Arts and Health Sciences theme is specially designed to meet students' learning interests and strengths. The theme is woven into all curriculum areas and emphasize 21st century skills such as creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking.

Research shows that when schools and families work together to support learning, everyone benefits — students do better in school and in life, parents become empowered, teacher morale improves, schools get better and communities grow stronger. Simple things such as attending school wide events or providing support in your child’s classroom will help bridge the gap between school and home and help your family feel like a part of the school community. Talk with your student's teacher about getting involved, or learn more about opportunities organized by Moreland's Parent-Teacher Association (PTA).
