Description

Wendell Creative Arts and Science Magnet Elementary School provides a productive and creative atmosphere in which each child is actively involved in learning through the use of the A+ Schools Program, arts, core curriculum, science and technology.

The A+ Schools Program is an integral part of the Creative Arts and Science Magnet Program. It is an approach to teaching and learning grounded in the belief that the arts can play a central role in how children learn. A+ schools combine interdisciplinary teaching and daily arts instruction, giving teachers multiple opportunities each day to recognize the special skills and learning styles of students.

The NC Standard Course of Study at a Creative Arts & Science Magnet School is delivered through a collaborative interdisciplinary approach that integrates the arts into daily classroom instruction. A four member arts team is employed full-time in the areas of music, dance, drama, and visual arts. The A+ approach to learning is based on Howard Gardner's extensive research on multiple intelligences and is also supported by recent brain research.

In addition to the Arts program, Wendell also has a well-equipped science lab with a science specialist who provides instruction based on experimentation and exploration.







Curriculum: Creative Arts & Science

The Creative Arts and Science program is a natural complement to the IB programme with its emphasis on learning and expression through the integrated arts. The arts teachers and science teachers are specialists who work with classroom teachers to help bring the arts into math, science social studies and language arts. This type of teaching results in classrooms where students are excited about school, challenged in areas where they have a need and are able to clearly see the connections between subjects. Students learn that there are many ways to be "smart" in accordance with the renowned learning research of Howard Gardner and the Multiple Intelligences pedagogy. With the addition of a science learning lab and a specialized science teacher, all students are provided expanded hands-on science instruction beyond that taught in the regular classroom.

Important: Bus routes are subject to change based on actual student distribution, parent appeals, and other factors. The information here will be updated regularly, but updates may take several days to be reflected online. This route information last updated: 2:56 PM, Thu, Apr 3, 2014.

Stop times: Because routes change daily during the first weeks of school, specific stop times are not provided. Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 5 minutes between stops in suburban areas, and 5 to 10 minutes between stops in rural areas. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. Stop times may vary as much as 30 minutes as students settle into their routines. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

Bus schedules: We urge parents to be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. Bus routes may be extended by as much as 30 minutes as students become familiar with a new routine.

Questions?: Contact the East Wake Transportation Office.
