Our School Lady’s Island Elementary is an arts-integrated school with a tradition of excellence in academics and the arts. Our school is a gallery of beautiful artwork created by our students and staff. We have become a popular school-of-choice that serves a diverse population of students in Pre-K through fourth grades. In addition to teaching rigorous curriculum standards through the arts in our classrooms, we offer gifted and talented arts programs including guitar, dance, drama, show choir, and visual arts. We also offer an after-school strings class.
