Principal's Message

Dear Ed Downs parents and community,


It is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year at Ed Downs Fine Arts Academy. We are thrilled to bring our students back to learning. Although our year looks different, we are still connected through our continued effort for success.  Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow and expand on their academic abilities.  Our wonderful teachers are spending hours planning and creating activities to engage our students. Additionally, they are utilizing Google Classroom that will help keep our parents and students communicating and working together to maintain success.  We believe that our students are preparing for the demands of high school and beyond.


We hope that you will find our website and social media pages informative. These pages will assist in keeping you informed about updates, events, and the wonderful things our Ed Downs family is doing. Please refer to our Twitter, @EdDownsGreypups, and Facebook page, Ed Downs Fine Arts Academy to see all the wonderful things that are happening!


I am honored to serve as the principal of Ed Downs Fine Arts Academy. It is truly a privilege to be a part of this community and work alongside parents, teachers, and students. We will build strong relationships that allow us to work hand in hand to ensure social and academic growth. 

Once again, welcome back and we wish you all a great year!


Greypup Strong,  


Reynaldo D. Rodriguez
