About Our School
Menta Academy Yuma (MAY) is committed to the student with exceptional needs, their families, and our community. Our thoroughgoing pledge and fundamental purpose is to provide a learning environment which will enable the optimal development of each child. “We will never give up”.
MAY is partnering with Yuma County Schools to provide an educational model using the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework. This provides flexible methods, materials, and assessments to assist teachers in differentiating instruction to meet the needs of all of the students we serve.
Our curriculum is rigorous, relevant, and reflective. The needs of each student are mapped with the Common Core Learning Standards, providing the teachers with valuable information about the students curriculum strengths and areas that require support for continuous growth and improvement.
Our highly qualified staff is actively engaged in each students learning using Expanded Menta Method, Structured Teaching Model, Blended-Learning, and so much more. This approach comes from three ideals serving as the foundation of the Menta philosophy… college, career, and citizenship ready.
