Executive Director Patrick Exner said they use project based learning and that is individual interest driven projects that can be assessed to state standards. Arcadia is a small, tightly knit school with just 128 students which allows staff to focus more time per student. The ratio is 16 to 1. Northfield School district is Arcadia’s Authorizer, reviewing their programming each year. Arcadia is a public school and receives the same “per pupil” funding from the State. Art Instructor Bob Gregory-Bjorklund said they fulfill the same graduation standards as any public school in the state. They’re holding an Open House on January 28th. There will be students, parents, teachers leading tours and a presentation on their programming. Arcadia serves 6th through 12th grades. Exner particularly invites 5th graders to check out the school. The event begins at 6 o’clock.
