A song is your ultimate form of self-expression. #RaiseYourVoice


About Turnaround Arts

Turnaround Arts is a school reform effort that transforms priority schools through the strategic use of the arts. We envision a world in which all students engage in a well-rounded education and exude confidence, critical thinking, and creativity as a result.

What We Do

Turnaround Arts is a national program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. It was founded in 2011 by the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, a White House advisory committee on cultural issues, under the leadership of former First Lady Michelle Obama. The program is based on the premise that high-quality and integrated arts education can strengthen school reform efforts, boost academic achievement, and increase student engagement in schools facing some of the toughest educational challenges in the country.

Our Impact

From improving academic achievement to decreasing disciplinary problems, research is illuminating Turnaround Arts’ positive impact in schools. Turnaround Arts works in a cohort of the lowest performing 10% of America’s elementary and middle schools. A 3-year program evaluation of the Turnaround Arts pilot schools, released in 2015, found significant improvement in academic achievement, reduction in disciplinary referrals and increases in attendance, among other findings. In addition, the study found that Turnaround Arts schools outperformed comparable schools in their city or state that received federal funds for school improvement (“SIG schools”).

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal, we will utilize the funds to work with WurrlyEDU for our students.
