Welcome to the Fountaindale Elementary School for the Arts and Academic Excellence Magnet website. Our school is one of four elementary magnet programs in Washington County. Our magnet programs focus is integrated arts. We integrate the arts into daily instruction and throughout all content areas. 

Magnet students explore the impact of the arts on the individual experience and learning process.  The arts are infused into students’ content area classes—English language arts, math, science and social studies-with the goal of fostering interest in the humanities.  Students with special aptitudes for and interest in art, dance, music, and theater will enjoy this program.  Magnet students build individual strengths and talents as they work through the curriculum at an accelerated pace that is at least one to two years above grade level in terms of breadth and/or depth.  Students learn how visual art, movement, and music connect to broaden and enhance their understanding of curricular topics and themes.  Students complete summer assignments that their teachers will use to launch the school year and “frontload” content to allow magnet teachers to increase the depth of unit exploration throughout the school year.
