Philosophy Learn more about who we are.
At Acorn Academy, we believe in researching successful practices, analyzing those practices, and attempting to implement them.
HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?
DID YOU KNOW?
"Finland has a history of producing the highest scores in the Western world."
"There is only one mandatory standardized test in Finland, taken at 16."
"Elementary school students get 75 minutes of recess...compared to 27 minutes in the US."
"Since the 1980's, the main driver of the Finnish education policy has been the idea that every child should have exactly the same opportunity to learn-equity, not excellence".
Acorn Academy is creating thinkers, leaders, and doers.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
What it means is that at Acorn Academy, learning will encompass the physical as well as the mental.
Hands-on learning using materials from the real world to work out real life problems will be the standard.
A stimulating, sensory rich environment to engage the whole child.
