Single Subject Acceleration
Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) is the practice of assigning a student to a higher-grade level than is typical, given the student's age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities. SSA is an accelerative practice that allows students to show mastery of the content of a course without having taken the course.

Wake County Arts Middle School Musical Theater Project
Wake County Arts is sponsoring the first Middle School Musical Theater Project this summer and HGMS has been invited to be one of the middle schools that will participate. This summer they will work with Broadway directors and choreographers to help write and produce an original musical!
The attached Powerpoint has information about this project. This is a great opportunity for students that are interested in any aspect of musical theater (singing, dancing, acting, technical theater). Students that are interested in participating will need to fill out the Google doc (Click Here for the Google Form). They will be contacted with more information and links to the online portion of this project. Our hope is that we will have a large number of our HGMS students participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity. Please contact Meghan Retseck if you have questions.
