Mission Statement

Alturas International Academy promotes academic distinction while empowering students to be principled and intellectual leaders as they explore, create, investigate, and analyze in a safe, engaged, collaborative environment that inspires them to make a genuine difference in their local and global community.
  • About Us
    • Alturas promotes a love for learning and marked academic growth among its students. In an effort to create a more educated and civic-minded culture, Alturas is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Programmes*. Students are taught Spanish through instruction and social interaction.

      Students are in multi-age/multi-grade classrooms, a structure proven to grow students from their academic level, and not just their grade level. Students have the opportunity to model and learn from their peers as they collaborate to solve real-life problems. Relationships are formed through mentoring. Classrooms truly become a community that supports, encourages, and discovers together. They are engaged in learning and continually challenged.

      Students learn in small groups at their instructional levels regardless of age or designated grade. Teachers practice diversification in the classroom by utilizing a variety of methods and tools to ensure that each student has measurable academic growth each year.

  • Why Alturas
    • Education is such an important part of our lives.  We want the best for our children; we want to see them grow and succeed.  We want them to develop a love for learning. Students at Alturas will be in multi-age classrooms (1st-2nd-3rd) and (4th-5th) and Middle School (6th, 7th, 8th) and taught in small groups at their instructional levels. This model enables students to learn, collaborate and advance at the levels that will allow them to see the greatest success in their learning.  Leadership skills are developed and enhanced daily as students support one another. Classrooms are a caring and supportive community. Our teachers create a learning atmosphere that is engaging, safe, and continually inspiring students to do their very best.

*Alturas International Academy is a candidate school** for the MYP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

** Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP).
