The Leadership Academy at Gibson Middle School helps to expand student’s academic success, personal growth, and social development in preparation for college, careers, and life. The Leadership Academy uses the real world as a classroom in which students develop as leaders, who take initiative, solve problems, work as a team, and demonstrate their abilities while addressing real community needs.  Students will gain a better understanding of who they are and who they aspire to become. The program places special emphasis on growing writing, critical thinking, organization, reading, as well as college and career readiness.  The Leadership Academy is a unique opportunity designed to guide students to reach their full potential.

In middle school, our task is to prepare our students to succeed.   In AVID, students are given the support and instruction they need to learn how to study, manage time, organize materials, set goals, and investigate their future college and career options. AVID provides the necessary support for students who might otherwise not aspire to go to college. By being enrolled in rigorous classes with the tutorial support provided in the AVID Leadership Class, student's grade point averages rise, increasing numbers of students enroll in honors classes and algebra in eighth grade.  AVID motivates students and provides the skills and confidence to reach their goals.


Leadership students also have an additional elective in one of three areas









Science Explorations


Office Aide





Library Aide





Cafeteria Worker





Student Council







Elective choices allow students to explore various areas of interest in order to better understand their likes and dislikes.


 Each month, students have a variety of opportunities to give back to the community through the SOS Program and the 9 Project
