Class of 2020

Annual Report 2019-2020

While we were unable to celebrate the Class of 2020 in person, we are grateful to our graduates, parents, faculty, and staff for imagining and creating new ways to honor this important milestone. 

A virtual graduation ceremony where each student shared their speech with the whole school, a carline parade with a distanced dance party and diploma distribution, home deliveries showcasing a choreographed dance by our Specialty teachers, Guild Week, mentor appreciation videos, virtual Family Feud and a special virtual campout were just a few of the ways that we came together to celebrate the Axolotls.

We are so proud of the Axolotls' grit, resilience, creativity, positive attitude, and support for one another during this unprecedented time. The 18 graduates matriculated to 11 area independent and public middle schools. We wish them the very best for the next step in their academic and personal journeys and look forward to keeping in touch as their stories unfold. 

Below are excerpts from each student's graduation speech.
