Faculty & Staff
Our teachers are certified by the State of Florida in Exceptional Student Education (ESE) as well as content certified. Educational Assistants provide support in classrooms helping students and aiding teachers in daily lessons. A low student to staff ratio ensures that every student has the personal attention they need.
Think of the best teacher you had during your school days. Then imagine a school full of these best teachers who are eager to help students succeed, using creative and innovative methods to make learning fun and interesting. Focus Academy teachers meet and exceed those expectations.
