Being a part of an educational community like Archimedean makes us proud parents. The education that is given to our students is not easy to find in other Miami-Dade schools. Our school provides an opportunity to start in elementary, go on to middle school, and the possibility to finish 12 years of a good education in a high school. During the years our daughters have been at Archimedean Schools we have seen that our school is committed to the rigorous development of student intellect, curiosity and cooperation with a focus on helping students value themselves, their peers and their community. A safe and nurturing environment supports the social and emotional development of students, which is fundamental for effective learning. Archimedean made up of students, teachers, staff and families working together - initiate the young minds to the art of thinking through the teaching of Mathematics, English and the Greek language, and believes that students require multiple opportunities to demonstrate their mastery of concepts. Student s understanding of how they learn empowers them. In their pursuit they promote participatory learning that is experiential, student-centered, developmentally based and individualized to student s particular learning styles and strengths. Also, Archimedean recognizes parents as an integral part of the learning process. Parent-teacher partnerships are important and strongly encouraged. The keystone of the partnership is a circle of communication where information, ideas and concerns are freely shared. Archimedean Schools can demonstrate its achievements through the results in all the Miami Dade tests like FCAT, SAT, NRT, DIBELS, and some important competitions like, spelling bee, geography bee, philosophy competitions, SECME & Science Olympiad at national levels.
