6th Grade - Students entering sixth grade (Technicians) will receive an orientation to Maxine Smith STEAM Academy prior to the start of the school year. This orientation will consist of getting familiar with locker logistics, understanding class options and other success skills for middle school life.
7th Grade - Seventh-grade students will have opportunities as Engineers to continue learning and growing both individually and collectively. They will receive guidance and support services specific to their unique needs of being in the "middle of middle school"--looking back on what they learned as sixth-graders and anticipating what they will learn as eighth-graders.
8th Grade - Our Eighth-grade Inventors will concentrate on preparing for high school and delving more deeply into the College and Career Exploration process.
