Walk through the Upper Elementary hallways at Main Campus and you will see students creating works of art for display, planting seeds for their outdoor gardens, or practicing for an upcoming music concert. In the WILD classroom, students may be tackling the problem of how to build a tower that will withstand high winds, while down the hallway other students are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their incubating chicks. The Garden is the hub of upper elementary. This indoor space is inviting and vibrant, filled with greenery, vegetation, fish tanks, and wall murals. All of it has been imagined, developed, created, and maintained by students. Upper Elementary at The Academy includes grades 3-5 and is located at our Main Campus.
