Welcome to Advanced Academics and Talent Development at Escuela Key!  Advanced Academics Coach (AAC), Micaela Pond, is thrilled to support teachers to engage students in high-level thinking!  You are welcome to reach out via email

Arlington Public Schools is dedicated to maximizing the strengths and potential of all students so they may become self-confident, well-rounded, responsible and productive citizens. Many advanced learners need opportunities to think abstractly, work at various rates and levels of complexity, and pursue tasks independently. In addition, students eligible for gifted services need opportunities to learn with others of like abilities, as well as opportunities to develop social relationships with others of all abilities.
