Schools To Watch
In the spring of 2021, Busbee Creative Arts Academy was designated as a National School to Watch. The culmination of two years of planning, preparing, and growing, Busbee navigated the challenges of the pandemic to achieve its goal of being one of the state’s top middle schools. Crafting a vision around the Schools to Watch criteria, the school structures and traditions in place ensure that every student is known, their contributions to the school celebrated, and their leadership nurtured.
