Middle School Academy Celebrates LifeReady Skills

Since the beginning of the school year, middle schoolers have anticipated Middle School Academy — the last two weeks of the school year when a variety of courses like Spy School, Global Cooking, Songwriting, and Escape Room culminate the learning from traditional arts, STEM, and humanities classes. Academy provides a unique opportunity for students to choose courses and explore unique and engaging offerings designed to showcase their LifeReady skills (Creative and Critical Thinking, Self-Knowing, Communicating, Perspective Taking, Collaborating, and Connecting). On May 28 and 29, the fifth through eighth graders made final presentations to families and peers, a fitting finale for their hard work!
