GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Have you ever been to a school where students greet you with a hand-shake at the door? What about a school where you're addressed with a "Sir or Ma'am?" At West Michigan Aviation Academy in Grand Rapids, students are taught much more than a strong academic foundation.
At West Michigan Aviation Academy students are taught manners, respect, professionalism and learn this through example. Both students and staff know the importance of these skills not only in high school, but in the career world after graduation. The goal of implementing this is to raise young ladies and young gentleman who come out of the program better people.
