MPHS assumes every child is going to college and prepares each child accordingly. The vision of the school is to keep the classroom size small to facilitate and further insure the success of each student. MPHS provides a balance between a classroom filled with challenging and spirited class discussions, and the ability for each student to work at his or her own pace.
Through our interactive classroom discussion vs lecture, the students receive reinforcement of material. We also see an improvement in their communication skills, and an increase in their comfort-level with speaking aloud and participating in class.
The student profile is often a student who either simply does not care for the very large school setting, wants a faith-based school, and/or one who thrives with more one-to-one and small group instruction from the teacher. MPHS is not equipped to work with students currently experiencing significant behavior issues, nor is this a therapeutic school.
We have a majority of children that want a place where people know them by name, and can help them individually to grow and mature day by day. We have students that have been homeschooled as well as students that have been to ‘enormous’ schools. Because MPHS truly maintains a small teacher-student ratio, we are comfortable working with students with dyslexia, dysgraphia, some high functioning autism and similar learning differences.
