At IMG Academy, we believe critical thinking and independent learning skills are crucial preparation for collegiate-level academics. Our teaching methodologies continually evolve to meet the rigorous demands of modern education, including the incorporation of lessons from the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), Bloom`s Taxonomy, the Socratic Method, the Harkness Method, and the 'flipped classroom.'
