Congratulations to West Valley Middle for their win of the inaugural Breakout Room challenge

We would like to announce that 12 of our 8th grade students competed against middle schools across the county at L&N STEM on Saturday and we won 1st place! Below is a message from the principal, Jimm Allen:

Congratulations to West Valley Middle for their win of the inaugural Breakout Room challenge! We had 75 of the best middle school science students and their parents as well as Physcial Science teachers from Knox County Schools came out today to compete for classroom prizes such as Amazon Gift Cards and a 3D Printer with training from our students in the Idea Factory on how to use it. Looks like a great photo of the Class of 2026 L & N STEM Academy Gryphons!”

Ms. Dietz, Ms. Maxwell and I could not be more proud of our students!
