Families in Arizona have several educational options they can choose from for their children. You can choose a private school, a traditional neighborhood public school, or opt for an excellent charter school like AmeriSchools Academy.
Charter schools have been thriving for more than two decades, and in Arizona, there are more than 500. These are state-funded public schools, but offer more than the average public school. Charter schools like AmeriSchools Academy offer your children innovative educational programs designed to help each individual student reach their full potential.
A Variety of Educational Programs
Charter schools have the freedom to choose and create their own educational programs. The schools’ educators, staff and administrators collaborate with parents and sometimes even students, to determine the way subjects are taught, the materials used in the classroom, and the type of programs that may be explored. At AmeriSchools Academy, we offer skill-based instruction, teaching an integrated curriculum to multi-age ability groups.
Students may enjoy educational programs that include, but are not limited to, the following:
- College preparation
- The arts: music, theater, design, and painting
- Foreign language immersion
- Technology learning and exploration
All Arizona charter schools are required to align their core curriculum with the state’s Academic Standards. According to the Arizona Department of Education, all state charter schools “must participate in the Arizona criterion referenced testing program, Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) in grades 3 through 8 and 10.”
Beyond Traditional Learning
Not all children learn at the same pace or respond best to the same teaching techniques. Charter schools have the ability to offer core curriculum presented in new and innovative ways. This allows for an individualized academic experience that helps your child more efficiently achieve goals while enjoying the process of learning.
At AmeriSchools Academy, our students experience education outside the walls of our campuses. We see our surrounding communities as laboratories where students can explore, engage, and learn. Our students have visited the Pima Air and Space Museum, the Himmel Park Library, the University of Arizona Medical Center, and the Grand Canyon.
