About Us

Our Mission

Hilton Head Island Elementary School for the Creative Arts, and Daufuskie Island School, in partnership with parents and the community, will challenge all students to attain educational excellence. An Arts Integrated program creates a learning environment using state and national standards in Visual Arts, Music, Dance, Theatre, Creative Writing and Multimedia Technology to promote meaningful connections between the curriculum, the children and the world around them. The focus is on academic achievement, the arts, character, citizenship, and life skills.

Our Vision

We envision an arts integrated school where caring, knowledgeable adults teach all children to love learning; to become honorable and responsible citizens; where academic excellence and respect for others are the standards; where teachers and students are positive contributors to the local and global communities; where teachers, parents and children have a voice and a choice in their educational environment and curriculum.
