More than 300 Eagle Arts Academy supporters attended the School District of Palm Beach County meeting on March 14th, 2018. Of the supporters, 54 parents, teachers, staff, and students took the floor to share their stories.
Stories about how Eagle Arts Academy had changed their lives, and how the school continues to make a meaningful impact on them. The stories, which you can watch in the video above, all detail breakthroughs, happy moments, engaged children, and the safe environment that Eagle Arts Academy offers.
Stories about how Eagle Arts Academy is more than just an art school.
Unfortunately, the reason so many from the community attended is not one of happiness. Eagle Arts Academy is suffering from a low enrollment because of a negative article published about the school in early 2017.
The article detailed a moment in the school’s history, whereby the previous administration had fallen short in some aspects of the administration of the school itself.
The article has caused enrollment to drop which affects the school’s budget.
Since that article, the new administration has made major efforts to reverse the damage that was done and succeeded. More recently, the school received a letter of praise from Governor Rick Scott as well as another article by WPTV that commends the school’s mission to keep creativity alive in education.
The teachers and administration staff have worked passionately to raise the school’s rating an entire letter and get the school back to its full potential.
