Learning Foundation and Performing Arts school is devoted to becoming a leader in education by embracing the entire student through a balance of education and performing arts.

The mission of LFPA is to provide a well-rounded, rigorous  academic and performing arts environment with high standards that prepares students for a path of continuous learning.

We value all students as unique individuals who have the capacity to learn and succeed. We believe in an honest and respectful approach that develops students’ positive self-image and integrity. LFPA strives to continually improve in all areas, including but not limited to the following existing programs and practices.

  • Using best practices with student-centered, personalized learning and innovative instructional techniques.
  • A data driven student intervention program.
  • A program of consistent supplemental tutoring.
  • An integrated, student-centered, rich and challenging curriculum.
  • Well-rounded programs in art, film, theater, dance, and musical instruments.
  • Physical education and athletics programs such as basketball, ultimate Frisbee and soccer.
  • Opportunities for families to be an integral part of their student’s educational experience.
  • A caring and nurturing environment in which students and staff work in partnership to develop skills for lifelong learning.

All students have access to core subject teachers and paraprofessionals that are highly qualified and meet NCLB/ESEA requirements and the Arizona Department of Education plan for highly qualified teachers.

We approach academic instruction through a model known as direct instruction combined with a strategy known as project-based learning. We believe this combination will ensure the instructional strength required to help us reach our vision.

Our academic curriculum is research based and fully mapped to align with articulated state standards. In addition to content area academics, performing and fine arts are automatically a part of the student’s school day. Fine arts teachers use the National Standards for Arts Education. Our teachers reinforce the connections between literature, literacy and literary when teaching fine arts courses.

We see fine arts as an honest and respectful approach that develops students’ positive self-image and integrity. Studies indicate that students who have arts integrated in their classroom curriculum out-perform students who didn’t have an arts-integrated curriculum. Student test scores in all grade levels prove this to be the case at LFPA. We’ve also observed that students who work together in performing arts programs develop a more unified attitude with each other

LFPA encourages parents to participate in their student’s education. Teachers and staff regularly communicate student progress and education strategies with parents through parent/teacher meetings, phone calls, email and newsletters. We have a parent volunteer program that encourages parents to volunteer in classrooms, at field trips, fine arts performances and any area where extra help and support is beneficial.
