The Musical Arts Schoolhouse is Frisco's unique premier performing arts Kindergarten! We focus
on the development of the whole child and meeting each child's individual needs.
What this means for your child is that the curriculum will be based on their strengths and
challenges not the class as a whole. Your child will be learning from a customized workbook based
curriculum combining two core educational programs.
Your child will experience a learning environment that is structured but fun through traditional
Kindergarten academics such as reading, writing, hands on science, history, mathematics and no-bake
Students have an amazing opportunity to experience their Kindergarten education in addition to
lessons in Music with instruments (including piano), Theatre, Dance, Spanish and Art.
There is a state of the art computer lab with iPads right in the classroom! This will allow
students to explore the world of computers through the wide variety of academic applications
offered from the iPad.
All of our teachers are professionals in their field. Our teachers hold a degree in
education or their area of artistic discipline.
Teachers also make a one year commitment to our students allowing more consistent expectations
and overall learning environment. To learn more about our wonderful team of teachers please visit
the Our Staff tab.
Students will be engaged in small group ratios of 1:7 allowing more one on one instruction. In
order to incorporate a stronger academic schedule, our Kindergarten students rotate 2 hours
per day to the "performing art specials" and have a block schedule for academics.
Students bring their lunch and share mealtime together as a team, and parents can be sure of what
their child is eating since they choose it from home. Peanut Free.
The full-day schedule offers children a lunch period, quiet reading time, academic
games, homework round table and one-on-one tutoring as needed.
These are just a few of the incredible advantages students will have while attending the Musical
Arts Schoolhouse all inclusive Private Kindergarten. It is our intent and desire to make sure that
we provide students a strong foundation intellectually, socially and emotionally by combining
academics through the arts.
