The Excellent Education Is A Given…
The Opportunities Are There For The Taking.
Grades are given out as a reflection of each student’s progress and show where a student’s strengths are and where there is opportunity for improvement. Progress is always our goal and we wish to inspire a passion for learning. An appropriate grading scale is used for each developmental stage and our grading periods are broken into three semesters.

Report Cards are issued three times a year via email to parents or guardian. Parents or guardians also receive a formal Progress Report via email for fifth through eighth graders at week 18 and week 30. The Academy is transitioning into Standards-Referenced Reporting to students and their parents/guardians to provide a more comprehensive report, “measuring students' proficiency on well-defined course objectives.” (Tomlinson & McTighe, 2006).
Rigor with Redemption
Our Middle School retake policy encourages students to practice the growth mindset. This opportunity allows a student to request to retake a test to continue learning and improve the test grade.
RenWeb is our School Management Software. It is a private and secure portal that allows parents to see academic information specific to their children such as attendance, grades, progress reports, report cards, homework, missing assignments, school calendar, school announcements and teacher emails.
