Dave and Susan Dudas, co-founders of the Edge Academy, established Akros Middle School for parents that demand a choice for their child's education.  

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.
