The days for Middle School students at ACDS are designed to develop the interests of our students as they find their independence and self-identity.

Middle School at ACDS offers many academic, elective and after-school experiences. We begin the day with our daily grade-level advocacy program. Students then move between their core subjects and electives taught by our master teachers who share their passion, commitment to children, and subject matter expertise with the students they serve.
