Students in Harold Smith's art class hosted an art exhibit at Lincoln Middle School last week, drawing on works in "Testimony: African American Artists Collective."

The student showcase, called "Our Testimony," explores the emotions, memories and values of the Lincoln Middle School artists, said eighth grader Gabriella Morris.

Success Academy at Knotts

Success Academy at Knotts Phoenix Logo

At Success Academy at Knotts, we believe all students have the talent and potential to succeed. Each student is provided with an individualized educational environment that addresses the social and academic challenges that they faced in a traditional school. All students receive an intake interview; this allows staff to meet with the student and parents to set expectations and give students ownership of their success. Students are then moved to a classroom with a small student-to-teacher ratio, allowing students to excel academically. Although Knotts is an alternative to the traditional classroom, students are still held to the same academic assessments and goals as all KCPS schools.
