The Learning Tea Visits Ron Clark Academy (2/11/2012

Last week The Learning Tea was fortunate enough to be apart of Ron Clark Academy’s open house. Students gave personal tours of the academy to visitors telling the history of how the school was formed and how it operates. Ron Clark also allowed us to sit in on his 5th grade math class to fully experience his teaching methods and to be able to see how the children react and learn from him.

The Ron Clark Academy is located in southeast Atlanta and accommodates 5th through 8th grade. Each classroom provides students with technology such as notebook computers, interactive whiteboards, digital cameras, projectors, and audio video equipment. In addition to the technologically-equipped classrooms, the school provides students with accessible amenities such as a recording studio, a darkroom, a two-story vaulted ceiling library, a gymnasium, and a dance studio.
