At SPARK Academy, highly effective and loving teachers prepare students not just for college, but also to become active and involved global citizens. SPARK Academy's values of love, knowledge, justice, teamwork, excellence, and perseverance form the foundation of a curriculum focused on standards-based lessons, inquiry, problem-solving, and service learning. We strive to ensure that our fourth graders graduate from SPARK Academy as confident learners possessing a strong sense of self coupled with curiosity about the world. Eventually, this foundation will help our students find their unique path as they continue through TEAM's middle schools, high schools, and onto college.
