Turnaround Arts Inspires Achievement
A signature initiative of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH), of which First Lady Michelle Obama is Honorary Chair, Turnaround Arts helps us provide a comprehensive, integrated arts curriculum to every student. At King we believe the arts present a unique opportunity to engage our school community and to inspire student achievement. See how Turnaround Arts is making a difference at King.
