Charter School Specialist give accolades to Akros Middle School in their most recent newsletter "The Sponsor Connection"

Dave and Susan Dudas founded their first school, Edge Academy, a high performing public elementary charter school located near downtown Akron. As the children approached middle school age, happy parents pleaded with the founders of Edge to build a middle school. From that request of those highly supportive parents, Akros Middle School was established.

Under the leadership of Faith DeCesare, Holly Piskula and Raymond Leek, Akros has become an essential education provider for Akron students.
Akros utilizes NWEA Map, a nationally normed set of tests to gauge achievement and student growth. NWEA is a highly respected national testing organization and, unlike Ohio, is stable with their methodology and have reference groups comprised of millions of students across the nation. Their NWEA Map Tests demonstrate that Akros Middle School is delivering strong levels of student growth in both Math & Reading.


akros article 5 2

Akros Middle School had above projected student growth for Math and greatly exceeded projections for Reading.


Charter School Specialists is pleased to be the sponsor of Akros!


In a wonderful synergizing effort, the students at Akros Middle School and The Edge Academy collected over 2,000 cans in our first annual can food drive. The students did a wonderful job of bringing in cans and then the middle school lighthouse team helped load all the cans into a donated Penske Truck. The students then went to the Haven of Rest to unload the can food items for donation. The Haven of Rest was very grateful and excited for the donation.
