Wendell Magnet Information

  • A Creative Arts & Science Magnet Elementary School


    Wendell Elementary is a Creative Arts & Science Magnet Elementary School. Our school has an emphasis on learning and expression through the integration of the arts in all areas. 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. 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.

    Wendell Elementary is also a member of the A+ Schools Network

    The A+ Schools Program is the largest, longest running, most successful arts-based whole-school reform effort in the nation. Since 1995, A+ Schools has been using the arts as a catalyst for creating connections and making school engaging, meaningful and enjoyable places to teach and learn. The A+ Schools Program creates statewide (and regional) networks of A+ schools that choose to adopt and implement the A+ philosophy and practice, and that make a commitment to participating in network activities.
