The Drake Academy of Excellence stresses the importance of manners, discipline, empathy, and confidence. In our Quest for Success competition, We teach students the mechanics of a proper handshake and how to engage in meaningful conversations so that they are prepared to carry themselves with confidence and poise now and in the future. The annual Quest for Success competition promotes collaboration between our school, community leaders, and business owners who want to participate as judges and play an active role in helping children to thrive.
