One of the main features to Copper Island Academy is their brain breaks, students take throughout the school day. Principal Steve Aho says that the school has seen immense improvement in their students’ attentiveness in class. And part of that is thanks to student’s ability to take a break from learning during school, allowing their brain to rest from time to time.
The Finnish education model is integral to the education system that the copper island academy has started. The charter school is working closely with Central Michigan University, a premiere education school in the nation, and the Michigan Department of Education to evaluate the progress the school and their students are making. Re-enrollment for the charter school is coming up, and Aho says there are a couple of sates to keep in mind for parents that want to see their child grow.
