About The Academy of Alameda Elementary School:

The Academy is a rigorous learning community where learning is embedded in meaningful real world contexts and where children are deliberately taught to see the connections between home, school, and the world through the lenses of identity, diversity, justice, and action.  AoA students will meet or exceed the Common Core standards and will be prepared to excel in the 21st century by being taught to be independent thinkers and to work productively within a diverse group of learners.

AoA Elementary School is a new charter school that opened in August 2015 with kindergarten and first grade.  We are adding a grade each year until we are a K-5 school, at which point we will merge with The Academy’s existing middle school (currently in its eighth year) to be a fully integrated K-8 program.

For the 2018-19 school year, we are accepting applications for classroom teaching positions at second grade.
