Middle school is an important time period in a student’s life. Not only does middle school prepare students for a successful transition to high school, but it also helps students form healthy social and emotional habits that can be useful throughout life.

Middle School Academies at Akron Public Schools provide students with engaging and creative learning opportunities at each grade level. Students will be challenged to think in and out of the classroom while learning about themselves and their relationships with others. All middle school students will:
  • Participate in small learning communities with a core group of teachers, community partners and peers
  • Research and solve community-based problems through service learning activities
  • Engage in activities that foster personal growth and build professional skills necessary to be successful in life
  • Explore careers with community and business partners
