Archimedean is definitely not a school for everyone, but this is exactly what makes it special. Archimedean is a school where faculty members truly care about your future, and their tireless work is highly evident of this. Students learn to manage their time and receive excellent college preparation. In regards to the classes, the Archimedean curriculum is definitely different than most, which is exactly what makes it an effective and engaging curriculum. From Euclidean Geometry to Political Philosophy to Logic to Discrete Math to Greek Language the classes offered at Archimedean ensure that students receive a well-rounded education. At times, the workload might seem unbearable, but this is for our own good- we learn to manage our time wisely and to pace ourselves accordingly. As a junior, I wouldn’t be anywhere else.

Archimedean Upper Conservatory is a very difficult school. It has a strong curriculum that mainly revolves around the STEM subjects. However, it has the unique aspect of Greek culture. The majority of the teachers are Greek; there is a mandatory Greek language class and a Greek math class; and there is an annual Greek night festival where we learn cultural dances and each traditional foods. This school is for the dedicated and the strong-willed. It is a small school where everyone knows each other. The staff are set on making sure that their students succeed. There will be afterschool reviews for classes, Saturday reviews for APS, and so on.
I have been in Archimedean Academy since I was in Kinder, right from the beginning they expect the best from you and that is not a bad thing. I'm not going to lie and say it's an easy school, but I will say it's a good school. Every year you are required to take a Greek class no matter the age (K-12) and take advanced math classes. Sometimes the work load does get overwhelming, especially in high school, but I do believe it is worth it, the school just needs to learn that kids need breaks. Another issue I have with this school is that the food and sports aren't the best, but they have been slowly improving; giving more food options during lunch and increasing our status in sports, such as in girls varsity soccer.
