We help students develop vital communication skills, while inspiring a love of literature. Our youngest students learn phonics, grammar, and comprehension skills and prepare for reading through multi-sensory activities. North Metro Flex Academy students comprehend and analyze both fiction and non-fiction texts as early as kindergarten. The program emphasizes classic works, writing as a process, and the skills that will be tested when our students begin taking the MCAs in third grade.

NMFA balances fundamental math skills with critical thinking and problem solving. Our active approach ensures students understand the realities that underlie mathematical concepts. Games and animations bring concepts to life, while challenge problems, regular practice, and review ensure mastery. We build from the concrete to the abstract as students move from basic skills toward algebra. Students also learn by seeing mathematical concepts applied to the world around them.
Our science program uses hands-on experiments to support the systematic study of life, earth, and the physical sciences. We nurture curiosity as students practice observation and analytical skills. Students also learn how our understanding of the world is shaped by ongoing scientific and technological advances. Teachers provide regular opportunities for students to participate in experiments and projects that include opportunities to apply mathematics and technology through age appropriate activities.
With integrated topics in geography, civics, economics, and history, our Social Studies program opens young minds and imaginations to far-off lands, distant times, diverse cultures and their own community. We explore the history, geography and the relationships that exist in our community, nation and world.
A truly well-rounded education must nourish the body and soul as well as the mind. We believe in the value of exposing children to the arts as well as to opportunities for exercise and physical competition.
