Principal’s Message

Welcome to CREC’s Museum Academy Magnet School website.  I am privileged to welcome all visitors to our website! Please visit this website often for important information, recent updates, and to learn what makes our learning community exceptional. 
CREC Museum Academy is a prekindergarten through fifth grade magnet school that uses museum studies methodologies to provide a comprehensive and challenging museums-based learning environment to all students. This approach enables students to learn naturally in environments that support guided exploration and discovery, encourage meaningful apprenticeships and artifacts, and foster interactions among peers.

Museum Academy provides effective museum learning by utilizing:

  • Museum expeditions and exhibitions
  • Visual Thinking Strategies
  • Project based learning
  • Student created projects
  • Museum partner programing

Unique to CREC Museum Academy is the development of community partnerships formed with local museums. These partnerships provide our school with a solid foundation for using the School Museum Process as a learning model for our school and academic enhancement.
Our diverse and talented faculty and staff work hard each and every day to provide our students with the safest, most engaging and rigorous learning environment possible. At Museum Academy we are dedicated to working with families and the communities in an effort to meet the needs of individual students.
We appreciate your interest in our school and hope you enjoy learning more about our program.
 
Best Regards,

Mrs. Shandra L. Scott-Brown
