MADWings

What is the MADWings Experience?

From freshman to senior year, students create and add to a WINGS Portfolio which contains artifacts of their learning and growth. Students reflect on their growth over the year in Course Reflections. At the end of each year, students present their growth and portfolio in a MAD WINGS Presentation to school staff, peers, parents, and community guests. All students are expected to participate in the MAD WINGS experience and will receive special recognition at graduation upon completion.
