Shuksan Middle School
BEATS is a before- and after-school program at Shuksan Middle School where students can participate in a variety of community activities and receive homework help. The morning program focuses on academic mentoring, while the afternoon has more of an extracurricular enrichment focus.
[We wanted] "to create opportunities that might be a little bit outside of the normal school day that gives students and families a chance to connect their education with their community and feel like this is a center of learning"
