The teachers really care about our kids education and future and give them the one on one attention needed.
I have taught music here for almost 5 years now. I look forward to work every day because I have colleagues that I respect and have grown to care for a great deal, a supportive administration that allows me the freedom to expand my curriculum for the benefit of the students' artistic development, and students that are kind, enthusiastic, and willing to try their best--even if it takes them out of their comfort zone. Together, we accomplish great things every day.
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.
This is a great school! Kids always give their best and the teachers are very devoted to the students. My kids have been in this school since 2004.
I love this school. The administration is very devoted and caring, as well as strict - like she should be. The teachers are excellent, spending endless hours on their students and very knowledgeable. The math they teach is different from the regular American curriculum, they follow more the curriculum of countries that are SUCCESSFUL in MATH, with more depth and less breadth. THEY GO DEEP AND MAKE SURE THE STUDENTS GRASP THE CONCEPT BETTER, as opposed to teaching them everything, but on a superficial level. Learning the Greek language will help the students with science and technology, since it is the basis of so many technical and medical terms. This is a school which managed to become THE NUMBER 1 CHARTER SCHOOL only after 4 years in existence, based on FCAT 2010 results.
I only have good things to say about AMC. Starting with the Principal, what an AMAZING job she does. Very dedicated teachers that spend their own time in helping the children to succeed. Yes, it is a kind of old fashion teaching with extra homework, but among other benefits, it prepares the kids to the huge competition in getting to the best Colleges. If you you want your child to receive the best education available, you can trust AMC with your eyes closed.
This school is NOT what they claim... My child graduated in 2009 and has problems with Math. Ask the principal of Terra. Every student had to go back to Algebra. Even the kids from gifted had problems in different High Schools. DO YOUR RESEARCH.. you will be sorry if you don't. Ms. Moysidis has a personality problem. If you don't agree with her. you're on her hit lis. and your child will suffer. Now that my child is out, she is so much happier. Ask students who have graduated and gone on to other HS. The truth is out there.
Congrats to AMC. For 2010, it is rated 1st in Miami-Dade and 2nd in Florida. Its dual curriculum in Greek and Math is very challenging tailored for success in post-secondary education. Greek, along with Latin, are the foundation of the majority of all technical and scientific terms, and about 60% of all English words. Knowledge of Greek increases English vocabulary, and grammar comprehension and develops the habits of precision, attention to detail, and intellectual rigor. Not to mention that students who know Greek and Latin outperform their peers on the verbal SATs. This school teaches also math in both Greek and English. Through the study of math students develop their critical thinking, problem solving, increased comprehension, and organization in thought. Good knowledge of math is invaluable in the contemporary world. Also, the top highest earning college degrees require substantial math skills.
The school's education program is great. BUT, the students don't absorb much of the information and detest going to school every day. Many of the Greek teachers have outburst and horrible tempers. The students fear the principal, and the teaching techniques are horrible and boring. If you want your child stressed over-studying daily until 2:00 in the morning (guaranteed) then send him/her to this school. Otherwise they will fail. I personally think this school makes for anti-social, depressed children for there are only 201 students compared to the thousands in other also good schools, which means the probability of your child finding a compatible friend is utterly low. Greek is a language that your child will have a very very difficult time learning, and will not serve them for anything in the future, as well as Greek Math.
The teachers at Archimedean are really devoted. My son is able to excel in part thanks to the caring teachers who go above and beyond. I have observed that the administration does not recognize and compensate teachers appropriately. It is very possible that labor laws are being broken here because there is no union membership allowed here and the administration are concerned about there own glory and not cultivating a healthy work environment. For example, teachers were required to work Saturdays one month to tutor students for FCAT and were not paid for this work. I sincerely hope that this school gets corrected for this because it is immoral and abusive to the teachers. Happy teachers make happy, well educated students.
This year Archimedean achievements: State Champions: Science Olympiad, History Bee, Geography Bee champions, Brain Bowl Champions, Best In the FAIR, Junior Division at the State Science Fair and First in the Microbiology division at the State Science Fair and we're waiting for the National Science Olympiad Competition in Chicago. These are some of the reasons that Archimedean is a GREAT!!!! school
Not good in administrative matters. I do not see organization at any levels. Teachers do not have good attitude towards the students.
Archimedean has very strong academic classes including greek, greek math, and philosophy.
The first reason my son goes there and I teach science. The teachers are all great and they care about the students. The school has given opportunity for my son to compete in various competitions like spelling bee, geographic bee.
Great discipline and structure! Primary focus is academics and curriculum/schedule is not interrupted by unnecessary activities. Also, has a great sports program!
Archimedean not only offers the best education in South Florida, but your child is treated as an individual. Ms. Moysidis, the Middle school principal, and the teachers all get involved with your child's education and well being, no other school cares more for their students in an academic and personal level than the Archimedean Schools, the elementary, Middle and Upper Conservatory.
GREAT SCHOOL! GREAT TEACHERS and PRINCIPAL! Excellent curriculum, high standards, safe environment for the students, personal attention to each student by every teacher.
Archimedean provides both a rigorous learning environment alonside a supportive and engaged network of both teachers and students!! The are several intellectual and extracurricular opportunities for students to interact with their peers that have made Archimedean the 3rd top school in all of Florida. Not only do the students have the opportunity to grow mentally and emotionally, but teachers too have the opportunity to learn many new things from what in my experience have been truly amazing and open-minded children. Archimedean is a major hub of future leaders, artists, writers, scientists, and even educators, and I have no doubt it will remain so for many years.
It has a superior educational level where students are challenged while still encouraged to perform at their greatest ability. Even as intellectual developement is nurtured the school still finds time to also provide the studetns with the arts, physical education and extra curricular activities such as school sport teams which they also excell in.
