With the 2021-2022 school year winding down, parents are already making decisions on what their kids are going to do for the 2022-2023 session. Many are searching for more flexibility post-pandemic and that’s why micro schools are growing in popularity.
Adamo Education is bringing this next evolution of learning to Queen Creek and has announced open enrollment at its new micro school location serving children in grades K-8 for next school year. Adamo Education combines the best elements from traditional, online and at-home learning to create a positive, personalized environment where children love to learn.
The multi-age micro school is a concept similar to the one-room schoolhouse from decades ago. Innovated for flexibility, the micro school might meet for a few hours each day or for three full days a week depending on the needs of students, families and their teachers.
“Our model is different from anything else available today, and what really sets us apart is our certified educators developing hands-on learning with quality attention for every child. We believe every child can learn and every student can be successful,” said Tamara Becker, founder and CEO of Adamo Education.
Parents can choose how many days they want their child to learn in person. Some choose three days a week, others are just two, some are five. The rest of the time, students are engaged in learning at home through digital and hands-on activities. That is why micro schools are so appealing because they are so flexible and can work with the parent’s schedule, Becker explained.
All instruction is led by certified teachers and Adamo Education works in partnership with EdKey, Inc., a large charter school network, to strengthen minds using proven, evidence-based, engaging digital curriculum aligned to state standards. This digital platform provides the foundation for instruction, and parents and students have access to it 24/7.
“I saw an opportunity to take the best from what we’ve known in education thus far and create the next evolution. Families have been wanting more for their children, and I’m thrilled to be able to give them the flexibility and personal attention they crave with the teacher-led quality instruction their children need,” said Becker, an educator with 25 years of experience in traditional, charter, online and hybrid school models.
Becker began her career as an elementary school teacher, with her roles evolving to director of special education, assistant superintendent and most recently, vice president of a large national education organization.
Adamo Education is located in Queen Creek at 20147 E. Camacho Road, called a "pod" at Becker's home.
The Queen Creek micro school location will offer morning and afternoon sessions led by certified teachers for students in grades K-8. For enrollment information, visit www.adamoeducation.org or call Becker at 480-209-2429.
