At Arrow Academy, our standard is to achieve academic
excellence, which begins with our teaching team. We strive not only to teach core
fundamentals as knowledge only but to inspire children to find the wonder in new
discoveries and also to celebrate the achievement in academic development. Our goals are not to checkboxes, but to develop momentum and enthusiasm in the learning experience. It is with this momentum that we hope to craft expectations for the developing child. To develop the confidence and ability to confront tomorrow’s obstacles and challenges. To be the answer, not part of the problem.
A group of education leaders founded the non-profit Great Minds in 2008 to define and encourage content-rich comprehensive education for all American schoolchildren. In pursuit of that mission, Great Minds brings schoolteachers together in collaboration with scholars to craft exemplary instructional materials and share them with the field.
The non-profit also just released Wit & Wisdom, a new English curriculum that taps the power of literature, history, and science to meet the expectations of the new standards.
