The Academy of New Media Middle

At the Academy of New Media Middle, our program is based on the belief that all students can achieve to their highest potential with real world connections and personalization. Mutual trust and respect is the foundation of our school. Our environment is safe for our students to be true to themselves and thrive in a social and academic context. Our experiential curriculum is based on the Common Core Standards and extended to include extensive opportunities for artistic expression and active community engagement.

We are a tuition-free, public charter school sponsored by St. Aloysius and overseen by a local Board of Education. Charter schools, called community schools in Ohio, are held to the same standards of accountability as all public schools. Some of the most successful schools in America, however, implement accountability systems that exceed those established by the State. New Media Middle's comprehensive curriculum includes subjects, standards and expectations absent in traditional accountability systems.

The New Media Learning Experience

A doctors note is a legitimate way to miss work or school, if you need an excuse to get out of going, because you are not feeling well. Many doctors will issue a note to their patient, only if they feel there is a legitimate reason to do so. If you go to a doctor, you can tell them the problems that you are having, and they will determine if a doctor form is necessary, in order to allow you to miss days at work or school. Most doctors are very honest, and unless they feel you need a doctors note, they will not give you one.
Going to the doctor is something that is not free of charge, and most will have to pay money upfront, or they might have a co-pay that they have to pay, before they can see their doctor. Payment is a big reason why some do not see the doctors slip when they are sick, because they cannot afford to do so. Although a doctor is the best way to help you get out of work or school, it may not be an affordable way to do so. Fortunately, there are alternatives to going to the doctor, and getting excuses to miss work or school.
There are available online of a doctors slip, and you can print off the template, in order to use it on your job or at school. You can search for an example of a note, and you'll be able to put together your own note, and then you can print out as many form as you need. If you find a sample of a note that is suitable for your needs, then you can use it, in order to get time off of work.

Technology will be seamlessly blended to facilitate the teaching and learning process within the building, and extending out to our satellite learning partners, COSI, the Columbus Museum of Art, and Franklin Park Conservatory. New Media's partnership with Samsung and Pearson will unite the latest curricular innovations with cutting edge technology. All students will receive Samsung's brand new, state of the art Galaxy tablet device. Pearson Education will provide a majority of our curricular resources in a digital (web based) and paper format to compliment our course offerings. Our courses will include the opportunity to earn high school credit in a variety of subjects.

Building throughout a student's course of study at New Media Middle is the development of a virtual Individualized Learning Portfolio. Students will have the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents through various exhibits, dance, drama and musical performances. Students will each have a faculty coach, who will offer academic, emotional and social support. Our school will house a mentoring program for young men and women in need of additional support. Service learning opportunities for students to volunteer in their communities, aligned with their interests, will be a required part of graduation.
