Archimedes Academy for Math, Science and Technology Applications

Overview written by the school: Our school provides a challenging and innovative education focused on math, science, and the integration of technology into all subject areas. Our classes feature inquiry- and project-based curricula and the use of remote response systems. Our non-traditional physical education classes expose students to new experiences that they otherwise might never have. Our students are grouped into four Houses which are divided into smaller advisory groups led by a faculty member. Although classes change, students remain with their House structure and House advisors until graduation. Our students graduate with the knowledge of math, science, and technology applications they need in order to succeed in today's digital society.
