AAA Project Based Learning Public Presentation.

AAA Project Based Learning Public Presentation.

The Accelerated Achievement Academy (AAA) is an extraordinary learning environment for students and a great partner to our families and community.

The AAA is one of the highest achieving schools in California and we won't rest on impressive credentials or awards. Our teachers are using evidence based professional development and instructional practices to grow our students even more! We have embraced Project Based Learning (PBL) school-wide and are daily pushing students for deeper and more complex understandings of the world and their place in it. That does not mean we assign more homework, instead we use the best research based instructional practices in education.

The AAA staff is deeply committed to growing bright and high achieving students into kind and compassionate people. We build student relational skills to raise the social and emotional capacity of every student. Our entire school trained to strengthen student connections to each other and their teachers in each high achieving classroom. Each classroom builds a Social Contract (agreement of behavior) that daily inspires our best selves inside and outside the classroom.

We strive everyday to be better partners with our families and community. We work closely with our Parents Club to send our students to world class learning centers and cultural institutions to expand their horizons. We build strong and enduring partnerships with local businesses and our feeder high schools.

The future of AAA is bright. Our students, families, teachers, and community are all committed to making advanced students grow even more and making AAA the best school in the world!
