About REALM Secondary School

  •  REALM (Rigorous Educational Arcade Learning Model) is a secondary choice school currently offered to students grades 6 through 10, adding a grade level each year as it builds up to the first graduating class in 2023. Grades 6 through 8 students are determined by an application and lottery system. However, students wanting to come to or remain at REALM Secondary School for high school must apply, prepare a portfolio, and interview in order to be considered for acceptance. 

    REALM gears learning towards the highest level of rigor in coding, game design, computer science, and programming. Students at REALM engage in a variety of classes, which become more focused as they move into high school. 

    Student success(learning) is our top priority.  At REALM, we are dedicated to delivering the highest quality of education to students that engages them in the rigorous expectations of daily learning. Our collective focus promotes a stimulating culture where excellence occurs daily.

    Starting in 2021/2022, every subject taught at REALM will use the Modern Classrooms Project, an approach to teaching and learning in which teachers deliver blended learning in a safe-paced manner by unit that includes enrichment opportunities for each student. As REALM students work in a self-paced manner, our teachers facilitate this process through careful planning, implementation, and monitoring of the blended learning model. To explore Modern Classrooms Project in more detail to see if REALM is the best fit for you, please visit their website @ https://modernclassrooms.org./

    We look forward to developing each of our students through rigorous education in core content and video game design at REALM Secondary School!
