Average student to teacher ratio
Prodeo Academy is a college preparatory school that develops critical thinkers & reflective leaders, strengthening their character & expanding their opportunities to contribute positively & productively to society.
Special education programming
Works closely with families to meet the educational needs of all students in the least restrictive setting. Prodeo utilizes inclusion & resource room models for specialized services. The special education team includes teachers, paraprofessionals, social workers, & related service providers (including speech, occupational therapy, & DAPE).
English language learner programming
Uses a rigorous & culturally responsive approach to help scholars reach academic goals. Our model focuses on content-based English language development, multilingual reading, & oral language development. In addition, our Newcomer Program supports those new to the United States, & our Family Institute program utilizes community partnerships to connect families to needed resources.
Covid recovery plan
All students receive small group instruction as a part of their regular classroom instruction. Post-COVID-19, our teachers have adjusted the curriculum, adding high-priority skills from previous years alongside the core lessons of the current year to mitigate learning loss. As a result, our students outpaced other students nationally in academic growth in math & reading skills.

Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Development, Engagement. These five values inform & inspire everything Prodeo does. They believe in the growth of the whole person. Preparing scholars for success in school & their personal & future life is essential. Academics are rigorous, & classrooms & community are joyful.
We come together to welcome, respect, collaborate, listen, & learn with each other. When we affirm the identities, backgrounds, experiences, & beliefs of classmates, families, & colleagues different from ourselves, we advance knowledge, empathy, & justice. As an inclusive community, we work to prepare children to be critical thinkers & reflective leaders.
