Turnaround Arts

Turnaround Arts aims to impact underserved elementary and middle schools through arts education programming that is specifically designed to address the systemic challenges facing these high-poverty school systems.  

A 3-year program evaluation of the Turnaround Arts pilot schools, released in 2015, found significant improvement in academic achievement, reduction in disciplinary referrals and increases in attendance, among other findings.

In addition, the study found that Turnaround Arts schools outperformed comparable schools in their city or state that received federal funds for school improvement (“SIG schools”).
