The Infinity Academy at Raymond B. Stewart Middle Schools is blended learning environment where teachers and students work together to create an educational plan tailored to each student’s needs and areas of interest.

These blended learning programs operate as a team, and students work together to achieve success. Each student is a part of a house with a leadership team and mentors, so all students feel included and have access to resources like their own laptop computer to take home. Students have the freedom to work ahead and explore topics of interest. Here, success is earned, and your hard work will be rewarded.
