ARTS SCHOOLS NETWORK BOARD OF DIRECTORS DESIGNATES NORTH FORT MYERS ACADEMY FOR THE ARTS AS A 2015-2017 EXEMPLARY SCHOOL

North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts has been designated a 2015-2017 Exemplary School by Arts School Network, the nation’s largest professional membership organization of specialized arts schools. Created to highlight a school’s commitment to excellence, this designation is presented to an Arts Schools Network member school in recognition of its efforts to evaluate strategically its purpose, operations, and educational programs. This honor signifies that NFMAA has successfully completed a self-evaluation in the following areas: strengths, areas for improvement, consistency with school-wide or program purposes, aspirations, and future challenges.

NFMAA is a K-8 public school within The School District of Lee County. Its students have access to all of the schools’ arts programs through direct arts instruction or through the arts being infused into the student’s academic curriculum. Students are encouraged to commit to artistic and academic mastery and to participate in school and community artistic and academic endeavors.

As an Exemplary School designee, NFMAA will be honored at the Arts Schools Network Annual Conference in Seattle on October 21-23.
