American Renaissance School (ARS) is a K-8 public charter school located in Historic Downtown Statesville, NC. ARS was established in 1998 (the elementary) and 1999 (the middle) as two separate charter schools, which in time merged into one school in 2008. The next momentous phase is here: ARS is growing, and we are growing by both constructing new buildings and remodeling purchased properties to be part of the expanded school campus.
ARS is days away from the completion of a state-of-the-art gym and activity center. This will be the first time ARS students will have a gym as part of the school campus. The students and staff are excited for the opening of the gym and activity center that will allow for improved physical education opportunities and school performances.
In addition to the gym and activity center, there is lots of construction activity taking place at the new intermediate school building being remodeled on Cooper St., just behind our middle school. The intermediate school will house our 4th-6th grade students once its remodel is completed.
And lastly, we look forward to construction beginning at our new Arts and Stem Center to be located at the old Statesville Record and Landmark building on Broad Street. Once this building is completed, students will have a dedicated space for chorus, band, drama, art, and STEM classes.
We ask for your support as we turn these wonderful buildings into usable school facilities for our students. Your financial support will allow us to furnish these buildings with gym equipment, tables, chairs, scoreboards, and more.
