We welcome you to Archimedean Middle Conservatory, “The Most Philosophical School In America”, the one and only 2011 Blue Ribbon Middle School, and the #3 Middle School in the State of Florida!
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 important 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 student 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 in problem-solving and critical thinking with the Greek curriculum: with an emphasis in 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 schools ultimate goal is to support all students to become productive contributors of the XXI Century by fostering in them the following skills:
