Urban Assembly School for Applied Math & Science

School Description

Applied Math and Science (AMS) strives to prepare all of our students to become compassionate, critical thinkers capable of successful pursuits after high school. We expect that our graduates will be well-prepared for college study and that they will be equipped with the skills to make solid career choices. From individual and group explorations into math and science-based projects to dynamic internships, our school will be simultaneously compelling, rigorous, supportive, and fun.

FOUR-YEAR PLAN GOALS

Goal One: To create one sequence of classes for students to select from in the visual/fine arts in ninth grade, which will conclude with students producing portfolio pieces by the time they graduate. 

APPROACH

Goal One: Over the four years, UAAMS will be working with Wingspan Arts to develop new course offerings in the visual arts curriculum that will create a four year visual arts sequence.

ARTS PARTNERSHIPS

Goal One: Wingspan Arts will be conducting all residencies and professional development.

SUSTAINABILITY PLAN

Goal One: Mechanisms such as several art teachers, a dedicated art room and curriculum support and supervision are already in place to support the newly developed sequence. In addition to this, the arts sequence will be woven into several academic areas, including English Language Arts.

Four-Year Plan will be completed in Spring of 2020.
