Measuring Success

I like it at the Academy because of small class size. ~ Shyann, 6th grader

I like how we have enough time during class to read when we finish work.    ~ Lindsey, 7th grader

I like that the teachers put in their best to make the Academy like home.  They also try to make you feel welcome and comfortable when you are new to the Academy.  ~ Cameron, 7th grader
