From the Desk of Principal Woods-Wallace


Please be advised that due to the pending severe snow storm that is approaching our area, we have made the decision to CANCEL ALL IN-PERSON CLASSES FOR MONDAY, FEBRUARY 1 2021.

All scholars should REPORT TO THEIR VIRTUAL CLASSES! If the weather does not improve we will make the decision on whether or not we will need to remain 100% virtual for additional days. Check your Google Classroom and our school's website for further updates.

Stay warm,

Ms. Woods-Wallace, M.Ed.

NWEA - MAP Testing Window is Closing Soon!

As we come to the end of our Mid-Year MAP Testing cycle, please make sure that your scholar has been tested and accounted for. The information that we have been able to extract from the data tells us how much growth our scholars have generated since the beginning of the school year. It also informs us of what instructional next steps should be taken to support them in reaching their academic goals.

Our goal is to capture the current aptitude levels of 100% of our scholars! In order to do so, we need every scholar tested. Make-up testing is being arranged this week. If your scholar has not taken the NWEA MAP Assessment, please contact the school at 330.752.2766 right away to schedule a time for testing.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Best regards,

Ms. Woods-Wallace, M.Ed.

Middlebury Academy is a tuition-free elementary charter school located in Akron, Ohio. We opened in August 2013, serving scholars in grades K-8. Middlebury places high importance on safety and civility. These are core to having a good learning environment and building character.

We have a project-based learning curriculum philosophy that incorporates new and emerging practices and technologies, such as chromebooks and tablets. We view the entire world as our classroom and will have a variety of face-to-face, virtual and other learning activities outside of the school.
