Julia Lee Performing Arts Academy is a tuition-free, public school. As a charter school, we have the flexibility to be more innovative while still being held accountable for student achievement. 

Our goal is to develop students academically, artistically, and socially with a curriculum that integrates both the performing arts and college-preparatory academics.

A Different Approach to Public School

Bar Chart

Throughout the year, we implement MAP Growth Assessment,  the most trusted and innovative assessment for measuring achievement and growth in K–8 math, reading, language usage, and science. It provides teachers with accurate, and actionable evidence to help target instruction for each student or group of students regardless of how far above or below they are from their grade level.
