Akros Middle School is a community school that serves children living in Akron, OH. A community school is defined, as a public school that is separate from any other district, is run by an independent school board and is funded by state tax dollars. Community schools do not receive property tax revenues. Like all charter schools in Ohio, Akros is a non-profit organization.

Teachers must be certified by the State of Ohio and work in teams to enhance the individual student learning.  The student to teacher ratio is 22:1



On a recent visit from the Ohio Coalition for Quality Education, both The Edge Academy and Akros Middle School were presented with the distinction of being "All-Star" School.  Our visitors, Ms. Sue Westendorf and Ms. Beth Lear, from the OCQE, enjoyed touring both schools to see all of the learning and leadership occurring in our buildings.  We are all so proud of the hard work of our students, staff and parents.  Educating the future is definitely a team effort and we couldn't do it without you!

What exciting news!  As we closed out the first 9 weeks of the school year 64 students were invited to attend the good behavior field trip.  How do you earn such a field trip you may ask? To earn the good behavior field trip each 9 weeks, the students must have fewer than 5 violations and 5 absences. In this 9 week period, the field trip student leadership team chose laser tag for the field trip of fun. The 64 students were invited to a full day trip to Amazone in Medina, Ohio where they had all day play and laser tag, as well as 10 free tokens to play in the arcade.  Students enjoyed hanging out together and we received so many compliments from the staff of Amazone as well as parents who brought their young ones in during the time we were there.  We are so very proud of the students for displaying great leadership behavior in and out of the school! 

 

Let's see how many students earn the second 9 weeks good behavior field trip.  Can't wait to see!!

The 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls finished their geometry unit with an exploration into tessellations. They viewed the artwork of M.C. Escher for inspiration and then created their own Escher-like pattern. The girls then decorated their masterpieces with lots of color and creativity.
