Elementary

A challenging curriculum that prepares students for the demands of the 21st century

Ari Guiragos Minassian students take part in a rigorous curriculum from Kindergarten to grade six with ample opportunities for academic, creative, social, and personal growth. Small class sizes allow for personalized teaching, making it a unique learning experience. Students receive individual attention during instruction, yet also benefit from group interactions, such as discussions, sharing ideas, and presentations—all of which build confidence and teach mutual respect. Students learn to solve problems in various ways and think critically as they prepare to become leaders in the global community. While offering a traditional academic setting, teachers continuously adapt to new advances in technology and teaching methodology.

Curriculum

Committed to providing each student with the highest quality of education, AGM offers a comprehensive academic curriculum in all core subject areas, in addition to a strong Armenian studies curriculum in language and history. AGM also offers a wide array of enrichment courses such as music, art, religion, instrumental music, and Spanish.

Renaissance Learning, a technology-based tool, enables our teachers to target instruction and guide student practice on essential reading and math skills. Teachers track academic growth and determine areas of improvement using STAR assessments--STAR Reading and STAR Math.

Accelerated Reader (AR) is another tool used at AGM to monitor and manage independent reading. Students have unlimited access to all quizzes and personalize their independent reading practice. This helps develop lifelong readers and learners.

Each classroom at AGM is equipped with e-Beam interactive technology, transforming it into a highly engaging learning environment where everyone participates. Our teachers deliver compelling lessons while keeping students involved and motivated.

Utilizing the best teaching practices and following the guidelines set forth by the Common Core standards, AGM’s highly qualified and experienced educators provide a dynamic learning environment which engages each student in their own learning and personal growth. In the pursuit of academic excellence, AGM helps its students reach their highest potential while instilling a life-long love of learning.
