  • The Music program at ASD is well rounded and vibrant. Children learn Music through singing, movement, rhymes, games, and playing Instruments.


  • Art education at the ASD follows the National Core Art Standards. The four Art standards are Creating, Performing/Presenting/Producing, Responding and Connecting.  They are embedded in the curriculum to ensure that our students know and appreciate the value of Art in the world.

Physical Education

  • Physical Education at the ASD follows the Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE), American National standards. The Physical Education program focuses on developing the fundamental movement skills, which form a foundation for both healthy growth and the acquisition of the many locomotion and manipulation requirements of sports and many other areas.
