Project-Based Learning

OUR SCHOOL MODEL

Do & Be Arts Academy of Excellence is a public charter school in Las Vegas that provides a rigorous arts integration academic curriculum, empowering students to use their creativity to create innovative solutions. Students also practice social-emotional skills while staying on track to achieve individualized learning goals. 

Arts Integration Academics

The integration of art forms into traditional academic subjects enhances student learning by providing a more engaging and interactive learning experience. 

Performing arts are used to enhance learning by providing students with opportunities to express themselves creatively, build confidence, and develop communication skills.

 Through this approach, students are encouraged to take ownership of their learning and develop the skills of critical thinking, collaboration, and solving real world problems.

  • What is a charter school?
    Charter schools are public schools operating under an independent contract or “charter” with an authorizing agency. Do & Be Arts Academy of Excellence is authorized by the Nevada State Public Charter School Authority. The charter provides the school with operational autonomy to pursue specific educational objectives regarding curriculum, staff, and budget. Charter schools are public schools that are held accountable to the same standards as traditional district public schools.
  • How do I enroll my child?
    There is an enrollment period when parents can submit their applications to attend. If there are more applications submitted than seats available, we will hold a randomized blind lottery. There are no admission requirements, entrance exams, or tuition fee to attend our school. If you want to get on our enrollment list before spots fill up, fill out our enrollment form.

    No. Do & Be is a public charter school, which are tuition-free, public schools.
  • What grades does Do & Be serve?
    Do & Be is a slow growth model, which means we will add two grade levels per year until we are a fully enrolled K–8 school. In our first year, we will offer seats in grades K, 1, and 2 for our elementary school and grade 6 for our middle school.
  • Where is the school located?
    Details about our location are not yet finalized, but we are aiming to launch in the North Las Vegas zip codes of 89030, 89031, 89032, and 89081.
  • What is Project-Based Learning?
    Project-based learning (PBL) is a dynamic classroom approach in which students actively explore real-world problems and challenges and acquire transferable knowledge. PBL helps students develop life skills like creative problem-solving and collaboration.
  • What will arts integration look like at school?
    The Kennedy Center defines arts integration as "an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process, which connects an art form and another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both." DBAE defines arts integration in academics as the integration of art forms such as music, visual arts, dance, media arts/film, and theatre into traditional academic subjects such as math, science, and language arts. This approach aims to enhance student learning by providing a more engaging and interactive learning experience.
  • Will DBAE use traditional curriculum?
    Yes, DBAE has selected the American Reading Company for its English Language Arts curriculum. For mathematics, we will utilize Illustrative Mathematics (Imagine Learning). To support the integration of arts into daily lessons, DBAE will employ the curriculum from The Institute for Arts Integration and STEAM. Additionally, for daily intervention and learning acceleration, I-Ready will be utilized.
