New Direction in the New Year!
What’s new: The school is introducing an enhanced curriculum with a focus on interdisciplinary topics and themes that includes courses such as IT application and technology and development, digital storytelling and literacy and 1:1 technology. The school also changed its branding and name from Heritage Institute of Arts and Technology to Higher Institute of Arts and Technology.
“Additionally, I want to introduce ‘Club Wednesdays.’ Club Wednesdays will take place every Wednesday allowing students the opportunity to build relationships with students and staff outside of their routine classroom. All clubs offered will not only be exciting for students, but will be aligned to the Indiana State Standards. Students will participate in clubs such as “HIAT LIVE” newsletter and broadcasting, artistic drama, chess, art sculpture and dance.” — Principal Erica Brownfield
