The Elementary School at IMG Academy was established in September 2002 to serve the educational needs of our youngest student-athletes, the siblings of older IMG Academy students and the children of our own faculty and staff. The IMG Academy Elementary School is now open to the public, offering a wonderful educational experience unlike any other.
The faculty at the IMG Academy Elementary School use a balanced literacy approach throughout the curriculum, with a carefully selected text series ensuring all core requirements are met for each grade-level in each unit for Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
Within this core text curriculum, the elementary team combines an exciting project-based learning approach to enhance the learning experience and better meet the critical thinking objectives of the Common Core standards for Reading and Math, and the Florida Sunshine Standards for Science and Social Studies.
For assessment purposes, student portfolios are kept throughout the year. We also use the standardized MAP test, which is given in the fall and at the end of spring. Consistent review of portfolios and test scores allow elementary teachers to evaluate student progress and curriculum effectiveness.
