Excelling at Global Level

A recent study carried out by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) ranked the US 17th in an assessment of the education systems of 50 countries. These numbers are more troubling in Math an dScience where we slip to 29th and 22nd rank respectively. PTAA believes that our students should be competing and excelling at a global level, and should be prepared, challenged, and mentored at the same level.

PTAA – Best Education

PTAA’s curriculum is infused with technology and adheres to the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Digital Learning Standards (NETS-S, 2007). These include: Creativity and Innovation, Communication and Collaboration, Research and Information Fluency, Critical Thinking, Problem solving and Decision-Making, Digital Citizenship, Technology Operations and Concepts.

This begins with our K-5 program and scaffolds skills through Middle and High School where students enter the “PTECH” (Pathways in Technology Early College High School) experience.

PTAA – a Global Environment

The digital world has created a new challenge for today’s students – global economics. Students today are now competing for careers with students from around the world. At PTAA, we do not see the global environment as a challenge but as an opportunity. Through our STEAM curriculum and foreign exchange program, we are providing students with the knowledge and understanding to succeed in a global economy.

PTAA has partnerships with educational institutions in China, India, and Brazil. Through our partnerships and trilingual education at school (Spanish, Mandarin, and Coding) your student will have first-hand exposure to our global economy.

Why choose a Charter School?

What exactly is a charter school and why would you want to send your child to a charter school? Public charter schools are tuition-free, open-enrollment public schools that have the flexibility to adapt to the educational needs of individual students, while being held to strict state academic and financial accountability standards.
