Sale and Stokes-Beard Are Ready For The First Success Academy

September 29th - October 9th, Sale and Stokes-Beard Magnets Schools will conduct the first semester's session of Success Days. The staff at both schools has worked hard to prepare quality instruction to students during this first round of Success Academy. This innovative program adds 18 days to the school calendar at the two pilot schools. Nine days each semester will be used to implement rigorous remediation and enrichment for students.

Sale International Studies Magnet School is partnering with MUW for the enrichment activities that include touring and creating a "Wax Museum" of book characters with the W's education students. Stokes-Beard Technology and Communication Magnet School is "Digging for Fossils" and exploring the field of archeology.


  1. It's a success! The first Success Academy went extremely well. The Enrichment Camps were filled with exciting and educational opportunities that inspired our students at Sale and Stokes-Beard. The Remediation Camps gave students a wonderful opportunity to work in small groups and one on one with teachers to master needed curriculum skills. Teachers said the small group instruction was successful as they saw several light bulb moments. There is nothing sweeter to a teacher than hearing.... oh, now I get it!

    A big thank you goes to all the administrators, teachers, assistants, tutors, and volunteers for making a difference in our students’ lives.

  2. During Succuss Academy I had fun and I learn Fact OR Opinion but it's was fun
