Principal's Message

Dear Academy of Excellence Families,

It is my pleasure to welcome new and returning families to Academy of Excellence Charter School for the 2013-2014 school year! We know you have a choice in where you send your students to school and we are deeply honored that you have chosen to make Academy of Excellence your school.

Because our school earned a Grade “C”; we are continuing to place intense focus towards improving our test scores. We want to increase both reading and math scores by at least 10 percent. We also want to maintain a 97% attendance rate, which means all students must attend school each day unless illness prevents. We must commit as parents to being partners in our students’ education, which includes having high expectations for teaching and learning.

Academy of Excellence is a reading place. It will be a common and expected routine that all students read books appropriate for their reading level at all times. There will be reading places all throughout the school where students, volunteers and families can sit, read and discuss what is read. We will honor those students who achieve in reading, writing and computing. We know that the encouragement we provide will spark genuine student interest and engagement while meeting state and national grade-level expectations for learning.

At Academy of Excellence, we believe in our students and we seek to make this a safe and secure place for them to learn and grow. We promise that every student will be prepared for future schooling and the workplace. We believe it is our attitude and aesthetic that sets the tone for success. We believe that we are not just doing a job here, but we are building a dream. You are cordially invited and welcomed into your students’ learning activities.

My door is always open to parents. It is my great privilege and pleasure to continue to serve you and your students and I value the responsibility to the highest degree. Thank you for sharing your students with us and please do not hesitate to come to me with questions, concerns, suggestions or just to check in! This is a place where you can find support for your student.

On behalf of all the Governing Board Administration and Staff, it is our desire to help every child succeed.

Dr. Eula Saxon Dean
Director/Board Chair
