We have spent the past few months in recruitment mode. We have great teachers, administrators and other faculty and staff who are ready to deliver the best educational experience for your child!
We have expanded our Pre-K and Kindergarten offerings so there are more slots available! In addition, our kindergarteners enjoy a full day of learning complete with breakfast and lunch.
McCullough Academy will become co-ed this fall, and the staff is excited to welcome the boys and girls to what we know we will be a rewarding and exciting new school year!
We have addressed overcrowding at the Gary Middle School. Starting this fall, we will have 2 middle schools. The Gary Middle School will continue to focus on STEM education. We are branching out to convert Bailly into our second middle school and will focus on the arts! We will ensure that the curriculum is in place for students who want to engage in both STEM education and fine arts. The students who currently attend Bailly Elementary will go to Glen Park Academy.
And speaking of Fine Arts, we can’t be more proud of the award-winning theater and orchestra programs that continue to flourish at West Side Leadership Academy.
We have also spent an incredible amount of time revamping school schedules and our transportation plan. Please be sure to follow our website and social media for updates on school start times and bus schedules.
Summer 2019 was be spent cleaning our buildings and facilitating trainings for our teachers and administration.
Great plans are in store for the expansion of our athletic program at West Side Leadership Academy. With all of our athletic talent located at one high school, we are more focused than ever on skill development, sportsmanship, character building and winning.
Beginning this fall, the Gary Area Career Center will boast more course offerings so that our students can be exposed to diverse and unique career opportunities. The school schedules have also been adjusted so that students will no longer have to choose! They can receive their required educational instruction at their home school and still attend the Career Center for additional career-focused programming.
