Welcome to the Archimedean Academy
A Conservatory of Mathematics and the Greek Language.
A Miami-Dade County Public Elementary Charter School, established in 2002.
We view Mathematics as both a poetry of abstract elegant Ideas and as an important instrument to model nature, science, technology, engineering, economics, and human behavior.
For centuries, the Greek language has been an essential part of western civilization, with its deep connection to literature and scientific and humanistic vernacular. The teaching of the Greek Language in a partial immersion setting will bring to our students the benefit of bilingual education to the brain.
Philosophy strengthens our mission to teach the art of thinking. Our students learn how to express their ideas with passion and solid logic. Philosophy provides the balance of Humanities to that of Mathematics and Science.
The educational philosophy of the Archimedean Academy is unique. It integrates immersion in Greek as a second language with a comprehensive mathematics curriculum. The mathematics curriculum combines traditional American mathematics: with an emphasis on problem-solving and critical thinking with the Greek curriculum: with an emphasis on number sense, rigorous mental arithmetic with undertones of algebra, and geometry.
Teachers design learning opportunities in the areas of English, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Mathematics, and Greek Mathematics and Language. The school’s ultimate goal is to support all students to become productive contributors of the XXI Century by fostering in them the following skills:
