Skyline Math and Science Academy, a new public charter elementary school, will put into practice the latest research on successful twenty first century schools: a rigorous curriculum, an effective cultural pedagogy, and forming solid and positive relationships with students and their parents.
Our mission is to provide a high-quality academic environment in a twenty first century school setting which creates and improves student learning, closes the achievement gap and partners directly with students and their families.
Our vision is to create learning opportunities and to bridge the gap for underprivileged students regardless of their socio-economic differences. Our ultimate objective is to produce students who are educated, prepared and who can contribute to American society and become global citizen.
Our community-based stakeholders represent children and families primarily from the East African, African American and Indian American communities and are located in neighborhoods of high poverty throughout the Twin Cities Metro but especially in north and northeast Minneapolis. Skyline Math and Science Academy will prepare all children, regardless of their socio-economic or cultural background, to achieve and excel in their grade level and to build the social and emotional competencies to be successful learners and positive contributors to their families, communities and the greater society. Building a strong academic program within a safe and nurturing school is the goal for Skyline Math and Science Academy. When families and the school have strong and positive relationships, students will excel and reach their full potential. Skyline Math and Science Academy believes every student can learn if the right mechanisms are in place. The school is committing to ambitious student learning and achievement goals, for growth toward proficiency in reading/language arts, math and science; as outlined below under Goals and Student Performance.
