4th and 5th Grade Electives
Academie Da Vinci has long been known as the premier Charter School for the Arts in Pinellas County. Our students excel in dance, including ballet, jazz and modern dance, music and art. Our students participate in several art events throughout the year and show off their music and dance talents in our winter and spring shows. In addition, Academie Da Vinci offers after school clubs in dance, drama, math, media and building. We also have a large program for Gifted students, which encourages creativity and advanced learning.
Recently we have decided to increase our focus on other kinds of arts, including the arts and sciences of engineering and technology. We know that our students' knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math are critical to their success in a competitive world. Therefore, in 2015-2016 and going forward, we will offer our 4th and 5th grade students the opportunity to take a new course, "Introduction to Technology" as one of their elective courses. This course will be full of hands-on experiences in technology and engineering. The topics will connect students to what they're learning in their math and science curricula. We anticipate this course will help students prepare for challenging work in middle school. Class sizes will be kept small in all our elective choices too.
