    The SUPER school is definately one of a kind! We have a unique routine and schedule in place. Every student here at SUPER School is pushed to do his/her best at school and in their personal lives as well. I'm honored to be part of such an inspiring program. This has been my most exciting year ever all from incorporating music and movement into the curiculum and from having the BEST students in marion county! POWERFUL! Exercise truly growns brain cells!

    Staff strive hard to incorporate movement into every child's daily routines. Students are given plenty of opportunities to be physically active throughout the school day.

    Frederick Douglass School 19 Indianapolis In My daughter attends Frederick Douglas School 19 and we both love it!!! Her teacher is so caring and hands on with the students. We talk over dinner and her day is filled with jump jacks and counting animals and what they eat dogs and cats and things about what makes each of them different. I m really just so happy we found a school that loves my child and she loves them even more. From her teacher the YMCA staff the cafeteria staff to the janitor my child has nothing but good things to say about the Super Academy!!!! She looks forward to going to school every day.
