About Us
Academic Brief

The Arts I.M.P.A.C.T Middle School has a committed teaching staff who believe that children learn differently. Through the use of arts in academics students are provided the opportunity to learn in a way that is meaningful to them. The results of this teaching approach are that our students have some of the highest scores on the Ohio Achievement Assessment in the district.

AIMS students are frequently given arts experiences and performance opportunities in the community. Also available are chances for interaction with a variety of outstanding artists and performers.
