Montessori + STEM
We are a Montessori-based elementary school that incorporates Nation-leading, S.T.E.M. based curriculum. This helps us develop well-rounded critical thinking students, prepared for tomorrow's challenges.
Innovation Academy embraces the unique individuality and natural curiosity of every student. We integrate a broad variety of proven teaching and learning styles with nationally approved Common Core standards to provide a solid foundation for our students to grow from-as people, and as students.
Raising the Bar
Because of State requirements, public and private schools are having to focus more on Common Core subjects, and in many cases are having to divert resources away from other programs. Innovation Academy strives to not just meet, but exceed our State standards, which is why we include electives into our daily schedule. These electives support the Common Core subjects while enriching our students' education and experience.
Core Knowledge Sequence
