Mission: The Accelerated Elementary and Secondary Schools community will demonstrate that children exhibit gifted level performance when a comprehensive curriculum is coupled with pedagogy based on scientifically sound theories of human learning. Our educational model will demonstrate that curricular design and instructional practices are the predominant factors influencing academic performance, rather than ethnicity, social status, economic privilege, or gender. We embrace the tenet that all children exhibit brilliance when their innate talents are nurtured in a challenging, supportive, and civil environment. AESS shall introduce a 21st Century educational model in which student performance exceeds all previous outcomes.
