"WHERE EVERY CHILD IS A STUDENT AND AN ARTIST!"

The Mission of The Academy: Students will be at or above grade level in reading, writing and mathematics by providing an innovative school of choice designed to challenge each student to realize their highest potential through a dynamic interactive program embracing the Performing Arts and Foreign Language as measured by results on state exams.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Academy of Performing Arts and Foreign Language was established in 1993. Duing the past two decades, we have served the High Desert community by providing children an outstanding core curriculum along with an esteemed music program. We are a "School of Choice" so we welcome students from both within and outside of our district boundaries. We are a small school with less than 500 students, which promotes a positive "family" environment that is truly unique compared to many peer learning institutions. If you feel that your child would benefit from a challenging program that is filled with enrichment opportunities, we encourage you to schedule a visit so that you can see what The Academy is all about.

Music Teachers
All students in grades 1-6 participate in DAILY music instruction. Our primary students (grades 1-3) learn to read music and play the recorder, which provides and excellent foundation for a more challenging level of music instruction in the upper grades. Students in grades 4-6 will be in either piano or string instrument classes. Our upper grade students also have the opportunity to participate in before and after school music programs, which include beginning band, concert band, and jazz band.

School Accountability Report Card
"Current SARC - Click here and enter " Victorville " in the search box.
The governing boards of California school districts must annually prepare and issue the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for each elementary and secondary school under their jurisdiction. SARC reports are required by law to provide parents, the local business community, and interested parties with important information about a school's progress in 16 key areas. These Conditions cover such topics as progress toward meeting goals in reading, writing, and arithmetic progress toward reducing dropout rates and the amount of funds spent on salaries and other services. The School Accountability Report Card was established by Proposition 98, an initiative passed by California voters in November of 1988.
