Our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment to enhance students’ academic, social, and emotional growth and to foster a sense of self-worth and self-confidence.
Atlantis Academy was established in 1976 for students who have learning difficulties and are struggling in their current school environment. Atlantis Academy emphasizes the importance of close parent/teacher/student relationships for the benefit of each child. Our low student-to-teacher ratio, welcoming environment and experienced, caring and nurturing staff help foster students’ self-confidence and self-esteem.
We believe every student has a preferred learning style. Our staff is experienced in using differentiated instruction to meet the unique needs of each child. Personalized learning strategies are aligned with each student’s academic level and pace of learning.
We offer a core curriculum that is aligned with the Florida Standards in English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies.
The use of technology is integrated throughout instruction and social skills development is incorporated throughout the day.
We also offer after-school clubs, tutoring and summer programs to enhance our students’ school experience.
Parents choose Atlantis because…
One of the things that makes Atlantis Academy so special is the parent community. It wasn’t just a wonderful place for my children, it was a rewarding experience for us as parents as well. It introduced us to a whole new circle of friends and families. That has been very meaningful to us as we navigate the world of special education.
The small class sizes allow the teachers to provide individual attention and responsive lesson plans. The focus on behavior management and busywork that often exists in larger class settings simply is not needed at Atlantis Academy. The social interaction and life skills learned are useful for everyday life.
Our children have flourished at Atlantis Academy Coral Springs. The wonderful community of students, parents, teachers and administration have been amazing. Our son is being so well prepared with a very solid academic foundation in an environment that reinforces social values.
