Tucson campus Curriculum
Academics at the Tucson – Country Club Campus focus in the areas of mathematics, science, language arts, and creative arts. Our commitment to providing opportunities for our students to develop both academic and personal success required us to identify what skills matter most. Ultimately, our goal is to create learning experiences that will support 21st Century skills such as collaboration, communication, and critical thinking in addition to fundamental skills for content mastery.
Curriculum resources such as Pearson Reading Street, Eureka Math, Imagine Learning, Galileo Assessment and Carnegie Math are utilized in the academic program as a tool to meet evidence-based curriculum aligned with Arizona Department of Education’s Academic Standards.
Incorporated into the academic program for a Well Rounded Education, the Tucson – Country Club Campus utilize FLEX Time (Facilitated Learning Experiences) where our teachers become the creative masterminds behind highly engaging, hands-on, data driven lessons that aim to develop those skills.
In our elementary grade levels, students are split into smaller mixed grade groups. Having mixed grade level students collaborate with one another has not only fostered more positive interactions but has also motivated students to support peers in their learning. Relying on data to drive instruction to address learning gaps is prioritized during this FLEX Time. Teachers collaborate and meet frequently to share ideas, strategies, and lessons focused on hands-on learning experiences. These are the foundational skills that matter for future success.
The Middle School FLEX Time is dedicated to highly engaging learning experiences that will last a lifetime. Students rotate in small groups between classes focused on various themes facilitated by a passionate teacher. The AmeriSchools staff is committed to creating opportunities to problem solve through enriched hands-on experiences. FLEX allows us to facilitate a learning environment conducive for developing skills that matter.
The Tucson Campus strives to provide a learning environment for all students that is safe and free from distractions. Respect, responsibility, and hard work are the three pillars that the culture is built upon, and that each student is expected to adhere to. Woven together, the school believes these ideals develop individuals with a strong work ethic who are reflective and compassionate.

Project Based Learning
Incorporated into the academic program at AmeriSchools Academy™ – Tucson is Project Based Learning (PBL). This method puts the students in charge of their learning process as they build relevant problem-solving skills that can be applied to all areas of life. PBL starts with a “driving question” that can have multiple answers or solutions and allows students to design a product that showcases their efforts throughout the PBL process.
