School Notes

  • AIM Academy was created with the belief that children with language based learning disabilities can and will thrive in a rigorous academic setting when they are taught by a highly committed, experienced and creative faculty who have ongoing access to the latest research, best practices, technological resources, and experts in their field. We dedicate ourselves to putting research into practice every day. Our students thrive in classrooms that offer multi-sensory and experiential learning and our programs are designed to foster self-esteem and social responsibility. Their academic and intellectual development is further enhanced by an array of extracurricular activities and enrichment in the arts, athletics and community service. It is our goal, that upon graduation, our students are prepared for the challenges, complexities and choices available to them at university and beyond. Curiosity, collaboration, compassion, confidence and critical thinking are their tools for success.

School Reviews

5  3/16/2017
As a former AIM student, I am extremely proud to be a part of a community as close as AIMs. Each and every teacher knows every student on both an academic and personal level, allowing classroom learning and participating to be much more comfortable and encouraging than at a larger school. AIM has opened many doors for me and has taught me many valuable learning skills, and techniques that I am currently able to apply at the college level. I thank AIM for the skills I have learned, the friends I have made and the opportunities/experiences I had that one simply couldn't find at any other school.
