Constellation Schools: Eastside Arts Academy Eagles

Serving students and families for twenty years, Constellation Schools provides a high-quality education that integrates the teaching of character education, values and self-discipline, incorporates technology (providing personal laptops in grades 2-12), stresses the importance of school attendance and addresses the emotional needs of each student.

Constellation Schools: Eastside Arts Academy student in class“I have 5 children attending Eastside Arts Academy. Every day they leave for school with a smile, come home with a smile, and have learned so much in between. All of my children have varying learning abilities. Eastside Arts has differentiated the education for each and every one of my children, exceeding my expectations. The staff and teachers have the total well-being of the child in mind. Every child is an individual and treated as such. Eastside Arts Academy is an asset to this neighborhood.”
