Middle School Academic Life

Making Waves Academy’s (MWA) middle school (grades 5-8) develops foundational skills in mindsets anchored in MWA’s core values and commitment to inspiring students to continue to grow and improve, achieve excellence, and prepare them for rigorous high school curriculum and coursework, in ultimately applying to and graduating from college or pursuing an appropriately challenging post-secondary education or career pathway.

Making Waves Academy middle school is particularly effective because it offers:

  • A long-standing leadership team, faculty, and staff with years of combined experience at MWA and in K-12 education. They apply research, best practices, and experience to address various student-learning needs, build relationships and rapport with students and parents, and develop foundational habits, skills, and knowledge required to excel and achieve in high school.
  • High quality, rigorous, and engaging instruction that is aligned to California Common Core standards.
  • Comprehensive support services for students and families that include academic support and intervention, nutrition, transportation, social worker support, and clinical psychological services support.
  • Facilities designed to enhance learning such as well-equipped classrooms, science labs, a Maker Space lab, art rooms, art and music rooms, outdoor playground and turf fields, and a gymnasium. Laptops are given to every student to use and take home.
