Atala Montessori School For Creative Expression

  • The arts serve as a core of our programs at the Atala Montessori School for Creative Expression.
  • According to the Harvard Task Force on the Arts, "Throughout history, the arts have had an immeasurable impact on social, political, and cultural spheres and have been deeply intertwined with scientific development." The arts are integral to every discipline in modern society.
  • Future engineering students often perform in the orchestra; aspiring medical students interested in anatomy take visual art courses; and strong ties between English, Creative Writing, and Theatre have existed for many decades.
  • These interdisciplinary arts partnerships build strong academic bridges across the curriculum and into the community and are necessary in a comprehensive arts school.
