Principal's Message

Welcome to David Douglas Arthur Academy!

I am thrilled to be the new principal of David Douglas Arthur Academy! As the principal, I am committed to doing all I can to make every student at our school successful. It is my belief that all children have unlimited potential when given the chance to learn at their instructional level.

Our teachers are dedicated to their students and DDAA. They provide our students a positive atmosphere full of encouragement and success. Our school is student centered and every single decision we make is based on what is best for them.

Instruction at all Arthur Academy schools is delivered through Direct Instruction. This instructional model is called Mastery Learning. We teach our students to mastery in the core academic subjects of reading, language, math and spelling.

  • All kindergarten students will learn to read and do fundamental math.
  • All students will accelerate their learning.
  • Students that have struggled will catch up.
  • High achieving students will continue to excel.


These are commitments we can make because of our academic model and the rigor of our curriculum.  

In order to be successful, we need support from our parents at home. To maximize your child’s success, we ask that parents consider the following:

  1. Ensure your child arrives at school on-time and has consistent attendance.
  2. Attend school events and get involved.
  3. Support the positive behavior we expect at Arthur Academy.
  4. Read with your child, practice Rocket Math and ensure daily assignments are completed.

There are numerous opportunities to volunteer at Arthur Academy. Whether we need help in the lunchroom, the playground or making copies, volunteers are always needed. Our school has a very active parent organization which supports our students and staff throughout the year. This organization provides an avenue for parents with varying skills and abilities to make a difference in our school.


I look forward to working with our students’ families and friends throughout the school year. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions about our school.


Thank you for your support,

Ms. Owen
