WMAAA is located in the midst of the Grand Haven and Spring Lake Public School Districts, both with strong academic reputations.
According to survey and anecdotal data, parents seek out the Academy because of its small class sizes, strong parental involvement, and its arts-focused curriculum. The district is growing in size.
In 2011, the Board of Directors voted to add a third kindergarten class due to the high demand. As a result, in the fall of 2015, there will be three sections of 4th grade. Because of the increase in sections, WMAAA completed Phase 1 of a 2-Phase expansion project, adding 4 more classrooms, a new art room, a set design room, and a 496, state-of-the-art, Performing Arts Center. We are now in the process of saving money by being fiscally responsible and launching a new capital campaign to raise funds for Phase 2. This will add 6 more classrooms, another computer lab, a glass-front lobby for the PAC, expand the playground and parking, upgrade technology and safety/infrastructure.
