    Announcing the Lake Weir Middle School Advanced Academic Academy

This magnet program will focus on providing a student-centered learning environment where students will be prepared for the demands of rigorous high school magnet programs. The 6th and 7th grade classes will focus on preparing students to take high school course offerings during their eighth grade year. Instruction will focus on advanced language arts writing and reading skills, as well as providing a strong foundation in mathematics. Students in eighth grade will begin their high school career by taking English I Honors, Algebra I Honors, and Physical Science Honors for high school credit.
