WEST MICHIGAN ACADEMY OF ARTS AND ACADEMICS
SPRING LAKE, MICHIGAN
The Board of Trustees of the West Michigan Academy of Arts and Academics seeks a proven leader to serve as the Director of this unique charter school.
About the School
West Michigan Academy of Arts and Academics (WMAAA) is a kindergarten through 8th grade Public School Academy. It was chartered by Grand Valley State University in 1996. WMAAA is located in Spring Lake, Michigan, just north of Grand Haven. The school began with 108 students 19 years ago and ended the 2016-17 school year with 490 students.
Students at the Academy come from 12 surrounding school districts within a 20 mile radius, with the majority of the students residing in the Grand Haven, Spring Lake and Fruitport School Districts. WMAAA’s student population is 81% Caucasian 7% Hispanic 2% African American and 2% Asian which is reflective of the population of the districts where the students reside. Currently, WMAAA has a 21% free and reduced lunch population. 11% of our students qualify for special education services. WMAAA has 30 full-time teachers with an average of 10 years experience. One third of the staff possess advanced degrees in education related fields. Teacher to student ratios vary by grade level and are capped at the following levels; kindergarten-19, 1st-3rd-22, 4th-8th, 24. Six full-time arts teachers are also on staff.
The curriculum in grades K thru 4 is based on the concept of arts integration. The Academy staff seek intentional ways to integrate arts into core academic subjects. The purpose of integration is to develop a deeper understanding of a concept and reinforce it through dance, drama, art, music, or instrumental music.
The arts’ program in grades 5 thru 8 takes on a more traditional elective-based program. Students choose a focus area (e.g. dance, drama) and approximately one third of their elective classes address that discipline. Students hone their skills in this art form while completing a full class schedule of math, science, language arts, history, and additional electives.
The school has a full service special education department that consists of 2 resource room teachers (K-4, 5-8), social worker, psychologist, special education coordinator, occupational therapist, speech therapist, and two full-time reading and math interventionists.
The school has a $3.9 million dollar budget.
