The Main Street Academy is specifically built upon 8 Core Values. Those values include Wisdom, Justice, Courage, Compassion, Hope, Respect, Responsibility and Integrity. These are reinforced to the students throughout the school year in many ways, including references by the teachers, intercom announcements invoking them, rules when on field trips, special awards, t-shirts, and much more.
I serve on The Main Street Academy's Governing Board and would like to correct a misnomer regarding the rating of our Upper Academy here. The rating shown is a lowly "1." For the more than 500 families who send their children to TMSA, this rating comes as a shock - almost an insult. Rest assured, this rating does not reflect the quality of TMSA. It reflects an issue with GreatSchool's access to our test information. Because GreatSchools is somehow unable to access TMSA's full, current CRCT and ITBS testing information, a "1" rating is listed here. TMSA posts its most recent CRCT test data on our website: http://tiny.cc/cwhpqx While there is room for improvement, TMSA s successes are clear in this data - especially in comparison to other local schools. The school's administration, teaching staff and board are laser-focused on student achievement each and every day. If you are considering applying to TMSA, please contact the school to schedule a tour and see for yourself. I would also recommend attending our PTO and board meetings, which are well-run, well-attended, and reflect the parent participation and student achievement that are our hallmarks.
