Abingdon Elementary emphasizes higher level thinking, an appreciation for learning, the use of art integration, and innovative literacy strategies throughout its instructional programs. As a Kennedy Center CETA (Changing Education Through the Arts) school, art integration accentuates the instructional program by incorporating the arts into teaching and learning. Students use creative processes to build knowledge and understanding through an integration of art and technology in the curriculum. In addition to CETA, Abingdon incorporates Project GIFT (Gaining Instruction through Fine Arts and Technology), which enhances the integration of art and technology throughout the school by providing wheelclasses in Architecture, Living Histories, Science Lab, Spanish and Technology. Project GIFT challenges students to use multiple intelligences to solve real world concerns. Abingdon Elementary specializes in many school-wide activities. Families are encouraged to be active in their children’s education to promote a wide array of purposeful learning experiences that encourage every child to become a lifelong learner.
