Time to Start Planning for Middle School

Registration for the 2021-2022 school year is quickly approaching and Flagstaff Unified School District middle schools want to make sure you have the information to support your child in their next step.  On Wednesday, January 6 at 6:00 p.m., both principals will be holding a digital open house to answer family questions about their schools.  Both schools will have an additional meeting in January for families.

Mount Elden Middle School offers three unique academic programs that your student can choose to attend based on their individual interests.   Academic programs are broken into three academies, Alpine Academy, APEX Academy and Heartwood Academy.  The Alpine Academy is a placed-based program that partakes in outdoor expeditions, service learning projects, project-based learning, while incorporating experiential learning when possible.

The Advanced Placement Experience Academy (APEX) is an honors program that prepares students for advanced placement classes in the high school while Mount Elden also hosts the Heartwood Academy - a holistic approach to promoting students’ academic and personal excellence through cross-curricular experiences.
