Mission Statement for Ashley River

Ashley River Creative Arts Elementary School, in partnership with families and community, provides students with a strong academic curriculum infused with the arts.

We have some basic beliefs that make us who we are at ARCAE.
These beliefs are:
All children have worth, dignity and are unique.
All children can learn and be successful through an arts infused curriculum.
A safe, positive, and challenging climate is necessary for learning.
All decisions must be based on what is in the best interest of all our students.
Family, students, educators, and the community must be partners in the educational process.
All must value the diversity of our school population.
The home environment plays a critical role in a child's development.
The quality of the future depends on the success of our children.

In our strategic plan for Ashley River Creative Arts, our goal for all students is to demonstrate mastery of South Carolina Standards in the areas of English/Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and the Arts. We believe the arts enhance that learning.
