— Aside from the late start, Thursday’s Curriculum Night was a success. Once a year, parents come to the Academy and follow their scholar’s daily schedule, meeting the project managers and learning about the school’s curriculum.

Every manager had a different way of talking about his or her class; for instance, math teacher Emina Slavnic used a meter stick to demonstrate her grading scale, while Ray Nance explained that participation is the majority of the grade in his class.

Ninth grade scholars were introduced to a cross-curricular project called “Billy the Kid to Bill Gates.”

Parents also got a taste of what music scholars are dancing to in between classes.

Chrisanna Lane, a parent to both a high school and middle school scholar at ASK, said she enjoyed the night. “It was very informative,” she said. Having already done it twice for her high school scholar, it was a new experience following the middle school schedule. “As a parent it seems the managers are set up for success. Now it’s up to the middle school students to reach that success.”

She said the only information she found missing from some of the presentations was how parents can help their scholars.
