We are excited to be offering IAA Apparel again.
Integrated Arts Academy
Integrated Arts Academy is a public high school located in Chaska, Minnesota, founded on research linking academic success to the arts and hands-on learning experiences. Our curriculum embeds culinary, horticulture, visual arts, and floral and textile design into core subjects such as math, science, English, and social studies. The rich arts-integrated instruction, small school size (~125 students), and strong community partnerships offer students a true personalized high school education.
Very exciting that Simon Otto, head animator on the “How to Train Your Dragon” movies gives IAA graduates a special shout out.
The Annual Gala is an opportunity for students to showcase their work to friends, family, district staff, and the community.
As a fundraiser, the IAA is selling indoor and outdoor plants grown from seed in our Horticulture classes.
Congratulations on this milestone! We are putting together a slideshow to acknowledge and celebrate your high school graduation.
If your child is graduating, or your family plans to move before next year’s school year, the balance in your child’s meal account can be refunded.
Congratulations to Chef Walter Wittwen and his ProStart class; Raliya, Mark B, Silvia and Marin S. They placed 7th out of 14 teams in the Main Course category and 5th out of 14 teams in the Dessert category at the competition!
Teachers in Eastern Carver County Schools not only lead instruction but also facilitate learning for each student. They teach by guiding students towards mastery of content and instilling 21st century skills. Students have access to a variety of resources and tools, and teachers connect student learning beyond the classroom.
Engagement with Learning Tools
With teachers as facilitators, students use a variety of educational tools and resources to maximize learning. While technology will never replace the role of the teacher, it will shape the future careers of our students. Our goal is to prepare students for success beyond high school, wherever their aspirations take them.
Most living and working environments have changed dramatically over the last several decades. Design of spaces and their furnishings reflect purpose: how we live, how we work, and how we learn. We are redefining learning spaces with a variety of furniture, layouts and technology that facilitate collaboration, creativity, comfort, and safety. They also convey a sense of belonging and purpose. School should be a place where students feel welcomed and empowered to learn.
Learner Voice & Choice
Students have the freedom to design the way they showcase their learning based on individual styles, experiences, passions, and needs. Respected as capable co-designers, learner agency is cultivated throughout all learning experiences. As learners become increasingly self-aware they grow into their own best advocates: showcasing their learning based on their individual styles, experiences, passions, needs, and knowing “what’s next” for their ongoing development.
