What?
What
is The Creative Advantage?

The Creative Advantage is
restoring access to the arts
 for all students in Seattle Public Schools.

Why
The Creative Advantage?
We want


Our young people to have

the tools to express themselves and their ideas, and creative outlets to share their viewpoints with the world.


Our city to be filled with

creative and critical thinkers. Thinkers who can collaborate to solve problems and are engaged in their communities.

Arts education teaches all of these skills

Learning through the arts is a vital part of a well-rounded
education and leads to well-rounded, communicative, and adaptable
residents in the Seattle community.

Who
Benefits From The Creative Advantage?

A basic education inclusive of the arts is

mandatory in Washington State,

but many schools are not able to provide the necessary class time.

The result is that while there are award-winning programs in some Seattle Public Schools,

many students do not have consistent access to the arts

as they move through their school careers.

The Creative Advantage launched in Central Pathway Schools and is now underway in the Southern regions of the district. The initiative will

broaden its reach into the North regions

in the next several years.
