School information

In this age of standardized testing, tightening of budgets from declining revenue sources, increasing student needs and external political pressures on schools, it is very easy to lose track of the main goal of public education: to ensure that our children have the knowledge and skills that are required to become successful adults. This school was designed to accomplish this goal. The design of this school is flexible enough to allow the teachers to implement a wide range of teaching strategies to meet the educational needs of the individual child, while meeting the accountability and performance expectations of the State and Federal educational reform efforts.

SAMS Academy offers its students a more comprehensive education in the various disciplines of science, technology, engineering, mathematics  will be taught and emphasized. In addition to that the students are given the opportunity to become involved in aeronautics. Learning to solve problems and expanding critical-thinking are the skills high-tech employers need and we believe we can deliver with this stimulating and inspiring STEM education model.

The Southwest Aeronautics, Mathematics, and Science Academy provides a student-centered; multi-age educational environment maintaining high academic and successful college and career oriented standards. At the foundation of the course of studies is a nationally recognized dynamic, comprehensive, interactive computer-based curriculum delivery system, creating a one-room school house for the 21st Century. Course offerings provide each student with an outcomes oriented individualized program tailored to meet each student’s individual needs. Students are required to complete a rigorous scope and sequence in all subjects, exercise strong written and verbal communication skills, utilize high tech tools, implement research skills and demonstrate academic skill mastery in each subject.
