I have a third grader at this school and two more who will attend in the years to come. The culture, community, teachers, administration, staff, and other parents have all been spectacular. I feel as though my son has made some seriously academic strides this year thanks to his teacher!
Amana's Expeditionary Learning model really help students grow into their full potential. I have had the pleasure of seeing this first hand with my daughter and son. Going to the learning showcases really gives you insight into what type of education students at Amana are receiving.
Amana is a community of wonderful and committed educators and parents that strive to challenge and foster creativity in our children. Do not be swayed by closed minded posts and come experience Amana for yourself. The Charter system works with the right leadership. Evidence is visible all over the school through their STEM program, focus on expeditionary learning, and efforts to promote diversity through a global outlook. This is a Fulton County public charter school where involved parents work hard to fundraise and fill funding gaps. Check out Amana for a different and proactive approach to educating our children!
We have really been enjoying our first year at Amana Academy. My children are being challenged daily and supported and encouraged along the way. We love the diversity of the school as it prepares our children for college and their future workplace.
As a parent, my husband and I have been welcomed and embraced by this loving community of staff and parents. There ae a lot of opportunities to get involved and really help shape the direction of the school.
At Amana there is a strong emphasis on being a good scholar, but also a good citizen. I love the Expeditionary Learning style, and the sense of community at Amana. My son has already gotten some amazing experiences, such as learning the entire "I Have a Dream" speech and then having the opportunity to recite it at Ebenezer Baptist Church, and he's just in second grade. The curriculum is rigorous, but so worth it!
