The Middle School Academy is composed 7th and 8th graders from around Denver Public Schools. The MSA has three core teachers: Mrs. Freeman, Ms. Knapp and Ms.Pandorf.
Our MSA has approximately 30 students (it varies depending on our current enrollment). These students take courses that are intended to prepare them for a successful transition into High School. In math, facilitated by our MSA students use MAPS diagnostics to determine their complete understanding of mathematics. That score (facilitated by NWEA) goes directly into our online learning system: Compass Learning Odyssey.
That program is focused on meeting the students where they are at and increasing their standardized test scores as they progress.
