From Idaho Arts Charter School

Idaho Arts Charter School (IACS) is an innovative, K-12 charter in Nampa, Idaho, dedicated to Engaged Learning through the Arts. IACS strives to cultivate in students the types of skills needed to succeed in their academic and professional careers and to nurture in them a love and talent for the arts. Our belief is that the skills that students gain from a rigorous academic program focused around a diverse arts curriculum will help them lead inspired lives as educated, 21st century citizens.

Our model of education is founded on four tenets: a strong culture of innovation, the integration of arts into core content, an adherence to college and career educational standards, and self-empowerment through self-expression.

IACS students gain these skills and abilities through a curriculum that is grounded in the Idaho Core Standards as well as music, drama, visual arts, and dance. School becomes engaging and fun at every grade level because of arts integration into the academics.
