SLA is an inquiry-driven, project-based 21st Century school with a 1:1 laptop program. At SLA, we believe that learning should not stop with the school walls or the end of the of the school day. We believe learning should -- and does -- happen 24/7/365.

Curriculum Sequence:

Math and Spanish are not grade-specific, rather dependent upon where students are at the time they come to SLA@Beeber. There are no honors / non-honors classes - all classes are heterogeneously grouped
