About this school

The nexus of care and rigor is the "Sankofa Way." Beginning in 2013-2014, Sankofa Academy will serve students in grades from preschool through grade seven, and will add a new grade level each year until it becomes a full preschool through eighth grade school in 2014-2015. Sankofa also provides a Transitional Kindergarten Program (TK) and a Program for Exceptional Children (Special Education) for students in preschool through fifth grade. Sankofa Academy emphasizes student empowerment and academic achievement. We believe that children learn best when they are actively engaged in answering their own questions about the relationship between their schoolwork and their lives. All students are empowered to master literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, and technology. We have a Family Resource Center that offers workshops and resources for families. Additionally, we have an Extended Day Program for our students in the first through seventh grades to provide "seamless" care at Sankofa Academy.
