Campus Facilities

Research shows that the condition of school buildings has a real impact on student achievement, attendance, health, and safety, as well as on teacher turnover. Too often, low-income young people and the professionals serving them are housed in rundown schools with peeling plaster, crumbling ceilings, deficient heating systems, substandard bathrooms, and other hazards.

Making Waves Academy offers its students and staff a safe, comfortable learning environment with unique features conducive to academic success. The Academy's facilities include a library/media center in the Middle and Upper School, art and music studios, two artificial turf fields and well equipped classrooms and science labs.
