Located in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, Florence Griffith Joyner Elementary School uses arts education and integration to engage students, empower teachers, and build a vibrant school culture and climate. Now in its second year of the Turnaround Arts program, the school plans to launch a Visual and Performing Arts magnet program to draw additional students into its arts-rich and arts-fueled learning community. This action created a visual representation of the school's values for the broader community, showcasing student artwork, musical talents, and the supportive staff that nurture creative young learners and leaders.
