Can you believe that the school year is half way through?
Fifth grade is getting closer to completion and it is time to start thinking about the transition to 6th grade. Black Mountain Middle School is inviting all 5thgrade students and their parents to an Information Night about the Academy at Black Mountain Middle School.
The Academy is focused on high student expectations, goals and results, personal choice and commitment, and empowering students to become responsible leaders.
The Academy offers depth and complexity to the standard curriculum and a learning community that is strong. Given a rigorous and challenging curriculum, the ideal Academy student is one who is focused on academic performance, understands the need to invest extra time and effort, makes no excuses and takes no shortcuts – all in all, a student who is determined and committed to being successful.
The Academy is a family, meaning that students, staff, and parents work together. Participation in the Academy program requires parents to be highly involved and responsible for ensuring their student’s success. Through a high level of parent-teacher-student collaboration, it is the belief of the Academy, that the student will flourish and become a more responsible, resilient, and independent learner.
The Academy will be accepting a limited number of students for the 2017-18 school year.
Applications will only be available to students/parents after attending the informational night – students are required to attend.
