####Opened in 2013, Young Audiences Charter School at Kate Middleton is an open enrollment, arts-integrated charter school in Jefferson Parish for grades K-11. Enrollment is open to any Jefferson Parish student. Recent research shows that students at schools with an arts-integrated curriculum scored higher on standardized tests and academic measures than those at other types of schools, including academic magnet schools. (PAIR, 2013) Additionally, students involved in the arts have better attendance, fewer behavior referrals, increased class participation, and are more likely to report a love of learning.
