Norton Space and Aeronautics Academy

Mission Statement

The mission of the Norton Space and Aeronautics Academy (NSAA) is to provide opportunities for equal educational access to a culturally, linguistically, socially, and economically diverse population of students within a nurturing, participatory educational environment aligned to academic standards, based on high quality, research based teaching methods, and supported by public and private sector partnerships.

Description

NSAA is a California Public Charter School, authorized by the San Bernardino County Office of Education. It was established in August 2008 and opened with grades K-2. Each year the school adds an additional grade with the goal of becoming a K-12 school by the year 2018.

NSAA is a Dual Immersion Program School which supports our charter educational goals including teaching Science every day starting in Kindergarten. Our goal is for all students to be able to speak, read, and write in English and Spanish in all academic areas after continued attendance in the program for five years. (For more detailed information about how a dual immersion program works and for research-based information, please click on the Dual Immersion link at left.)

NSAA puts research-guided programs into best practices in the areas of teacher training, curriculum development, and pedagogy. Offering a safe haven for educational enhancement and activities allows the underserved children in the surrounding area to increase learning opportunities.

Students at the NSAA benefit from our established partnerships with many prestigious organizations:

  • Lewis Center for Educational Research
  • University of California, Riverside (UCR)
  • University of Redlands
  • Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)
  • California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB)
