School Notes

  • Shouldn't school be preparing kids to succeed as adults?  The world is in a constant state of change. In addition to strong academics, our kids will need to be strong communicators, collaborators, agile critical thinkers, and calculated risk takers.  They won't develop those skills regurgitating information on tests.
  • Our students set their own goals, work at their own pace in core skills like math and grammar, use accountability and governance systems to run their own Studios, and participate in Socratic discussions and hands on projects.
  • They learn to lead by serving others.  Oh, and we don't assign homework. Ever.  If you're an out of the box thinker looking for a learning environment that will foster creativity, agency, kindness, and entrepreneurship, then we are the school for you.
  • Acton Academy Albuquerque is a mastery-based, learner driven school for grades K-12.
