The Whole Schools Initiative

Welcome to Whole Schools!

The Whole Schools Initiative, Mississippi’s first comprehensive statewide arts education program, uses the arts as a vehicle for promoting high-quality instruction and learning for students in all disciplines. This unique program goes far beyond “art for art’s sake” and applies the learning power of the arts across the entire curriculum. Learn more about the Whole Schools Initiative.
