Leading up to Valentine's Day and in conjunction with this year's school wide kindness campaign, Leading Edge production classes competed in a door decorating contest.  Each production class had 1 week to create a door cover that represented both the kindness theme and the subject taught in that classroom.  Congrats to Ms Feeney's 8th graders for being the overall winners.  Congrats to all students for their daily representation of how kindness matters.

Students Shine on History Day

In social studies, students studied the theme of leadership and identified leaders to research and analyze.  Those who were inspired created history day projects which were judged by a panel of parent volunteers.  Winners of the competition go on to compete at county and state levels.

About the Leading Edge Academy

The Leading Edge Academy was founded in 1993 and has earned a reputation for academic excellence, maintaining a safe and supportive learning environment and having a faculty of outstanding teachers. Our cross-curricular, three-year program links subjects together for a well-rounded and connected educational experience. Our teachers go above and beyond to offer an exciting curriculum that involves students in hands-on learning experiences that encourage creativity and exploration.

The Leading Edge Academy holds its students to high standards in the areas of academic achievement, attendance and behavior.  We expect our students to work to the best of their ability.  Families contribute 30 hours of service each year and commit to ongoing support and development of their student's academic portfolio.  In return, students leave our program well-equipped with pride, confidence, responsibility, knowledge and skills needed to excel beyond the middle school environment.

Digital Earthquake Storybooks

These were written by our sixth grade students who were asked to find an earthquake from the past that happened on their birthdate (via USGS). They then wrote a news report and a historical fiction account based on the event. Click on the image below to read a book from the shelf.
