Rock Island Academy

The Rock Island Academy is a PreK through 6 elementary school that educates over 400 students and over 45 staff members. 
Twenty-five percent of our population is comprised of English Learner students that speak up to thirteen different languages, with Kirundi, Karen, and Spanish being the most frequently spoken by our newcomers. 
Our mission at the Academy is to empower diverse learners in a safe and respectful environment.  Our students and staff embrace this mission daily by living out our Academy Expectations, which are; 1) I can be safe.  2) I can be respectful, and 3) I can be here and ready.
Our philosophy is that all students belong to all adults, and all adults belong to all students.  We are a family that recognizes that we are all accountable for the teaching and learning that takes place.  We believe that mutual respect is at the heart of building these strong and powerful relationships.
