Abingdon’s instructional program is consistent with the Arlington Public Schools goal to teach all students a broad body of knowledge, effective communication skills, a rational system of thought, and to use their creativity. Our instructional program is unique in its design by the emphasis on personalizing instruction to the individual, music instruction for all students, a broad array of after-school enrichment activities and a collaborative model among staff for instruction.
Project GIFT, Gaining Instruction Through Fine Arts and Technology, provides the school focus for Abingdon to increase student achievement and community engagement by implementing instructional practices guided by the framework of Multiple Intelligences Theory.
Multiple Intelligences Theory was articulated by Howard Gardner in 1983. The theory is a description of how human intelligence is organized. Gardner has identified at least eight intelligences including linguistic, mathematical-logical, bodily kinesthetic, musical, visual- spatial, naturalist, interpersonal and intrapersonal. This theory supports Abingdon’s primary objective to ensure that all children experience academic achievement.
