All of Hawthorne's students participate in a teacher-developed program called ARTECH. Hawthorne’s students learn to create and interpret art in many forms and use technology across all curricular areas, from the beginning of transitional kindergarten to the end of sixth grade. Teachers and staff are committed to teaching visual and performing arts based on the Common Core State Standards, and to integrating arts instruction across the curriculum. Technology is used extensively as a learning and creative tool by both teachers and students. Students master technology skills embedded in the Common Core State Standards while also using technology to develop into contributing members of a global community of learners and innovators. Hawthorne’s ARTECH program develops creative and critical thinkers who are fully engaged in their educational experience.
