Special Governing Authority Virtual Meeting – October 26

 

 

Summit Academy Akron Elementary is committed to meeting the special needs of our students. With a low student/teacher ratio, we are able to form a bond with each child and give them the attention they need to thrive in an educational environment.

Providing for the whole child

Our school realizes that it is important to give a child a well-rounded experience, which is why we have:

  • Monthly family nights
  • Positive Behavior Intervention System
  • Teacher/student mentoring program
  • Community garden
  • Basketball team

Engaging with children where they are developmentally

With two teachers in each classroom, a highly qualified intervention specialist and a high ranking teacher, our instructors can work more closely with the students to better monitor their progress and become familiar with how they learn. We have many highly qualified specialists on staff available to help the students including:

  • Behavior Specialist who is a licensed Social Worker
  • Building Literacy Coordinator
  • Building Math Coordinator
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Speech Therapist

Our team of instructors and specialists has been carefully crafted so that we can give the best education to our students, keeping their unique ways of learning in mind.

Summit Academy’s proven therapeutic academic program is designed to fulfill the academic, social, emotional, and physical requirements of students with special needs. The school is committed to providing an extraordinary, safe, and nurturing learning environment where students will reach their full potential.
