Eagle Elementary School of the Arts has a unique and dynamic campus. The school is laid out on what was once pasture land for grazing cows. In the late 1800’s, the need for more than one school arose because of the increase in settlers in this valley. Children had to ride in buggies or by horseback to get to school. In 1910, a new brick schoolhouse was constructed where our current school is located. It was Eagle’s first high school. Later, classrooms and a gymnasium were built on the lower level. That gym, and two classrooms, exists to this day.
Eagle Elementary School of the Arts has a unique layout. There are five buildings on two levels used for the education of students. The main building, on our upper campus, contains the administrative office, cafeteria, kitchen, and classrooms for 1st & 2nd grade, along with our resource room. Behind this sits a building that contains our school library, computer lab and classrooms for kindergarten, 2nd & 3rd grade. We have also added a portable on the upper campus that house a third grade classroom and science lab. The lower campus includes our 4th & 5th grade classrooms, a music room, art room and a gym. The gymnasium being part of the old high school is the only full sized, hardwood floor gymnasium on an elementary campus in our district.
Although the buildings are older they have been upgraded to support current technology. We have computers in each classroom as well as a full computer lab. Our gymnasium has a stage at one end that has been upgraded and is being used for school plays and other performances. We have also added an outdoor stage on the upper campus as we continue to improve our facilities to fit the needs of the art magnet school.
Our students, parents, and staff believe in a school that promotes respect, sets high expectations, and involves the community. We are renowned for our warmth, volunteer-friendly atmosphere, and competent staff. Our students scored well on the ISAT test, obtaining Annual Yearly Progress (AYP) in all grades, with 96% of our 5th graders scoring advanced or proficient in the science content area. It is truly our mission to meet the needs of every student who walks through our doors. As our school motto states we believe all students can learn.
