Save Arts High School
Arts High will eventually be eradicated, if Cami Anderson has her way. There is a new Arts charter school opened in Newark, and she's doing her best to have all students interested in the arts to be sent to that school.
- Mandatory extended days (to add extra time for English classes), but not extending the time of arts education or math instruction, for which the district has a low number.
- Common application for NPS that includes Arts High, which eradicates the idea of a magnet school. Even with the audition and acceptance process, there's still a chance for other students to be thrown into the building.
- Opening an arts charter also takes away from the number of applicants for AHS.
And there are other stats as well.
