Middlebury Academy Responds to Ebola
Middlebury Academy's Mission
Middlebury Academy is dedicated to improving the lives of its students by providing authentic learning experiences in a collaborative, nurturing environment that will build a foundation for students’ success in school, at future work, and in life. To achieve the mission, our School will integrate current learning technologies into each classroom. We will offer authentic learning experiences that are representative of how children learn best, as well as offer a schedule and support activities that enable each student to reach to his or her potential. We want our students to leave with the skills and abilities necessary to achieve academic excellence, personal growth, and success as lifelong learners. This mission requires the support of the faculty, staff, families, and community in order to encourage and empower students to be responsible and valued citizens.
The Vision of Middlebury Academy is to foster a love of learning and develop a multicultural environment, through communication that focuses on problem solving, scientific and technological strategies, languages and entrepreneurship ship in our students.
The Middlebury Academy Believe It Or Not I Care (B.I.O.N.I.C.) team speaks out against bullying in a presentation during lunch. Officer Jeff Edsell from the Akron Police Department, Monique Swain, the intervention specialist, and Mrs. McKeen, the art teacher and student adviser assist with the presentation. The BIONIC team started an anti bullying campaing earlier this year which teaches their peers the importants of not bullying and how to speak up for change.
This year, the quarterly Scantron assessment has been replaced with the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress or MAP assessment. The MAP is a computer adaptive test with great features, which will prove to be beneficial for the students. Take a look at some of the excellent advantages of the MAP:
•The data received from the tests will be used to foster improvement in academic performance.
•The test items are adaptive, in that the items adjust to student responses.
