Los Penasquitos Academy Foundation Back

The Los Penasquitos Academy, established in July of 2000 with an initial fourth and fifth grade class, has now grown to two third, two fourth, and two fifth grades. The Academy is a unique 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade magnet program where families choose to have their child attend school for four additional hours each school week and an extra eight days during the summer. The extended time allows for added emphasis on literacy, science, math, and community building. All teachers carry a cell phone and are available to their students six days a week. We promote a culture of teamwork and camaraderie. An integral component to the success of our program is the strong emphasis on a student’s development as a responsible, respectful person.
