We are pleased to introduce you to our school and describe our commitment to providing a unique and meaningful educational opportunity for children. Our
mission: We are a community of learners. We support our students to become caring, self-aware and articulate critical thinkers, who are prepared to meet challenges with perseverance, creativity and integrity. We believe that a meaningful life is characterized by personal achievement and the ability to work with others in service to society.

What We Do We are dedicated to helping our students become aware of the range of their creative talents and how those talents can be applied in developing a life of positive meaning and purpose. To fulfill this mission our school is committed to giving individual attention to each student as we pursue our program of Academic Excellence, Creative Self-Expression, and Positive Character Development.

Area of Specialization

Community: Since its inception 30 years ago, MMS has been based on a web of meaningful relationships. Parents, students, faculty and staff work together to be deeply respectful and caring. We are a small school where every person is known, and every person counts.

Environment: Our mountaintop campus is 355 acres of meadow and woodland – parents describe it as a haven where children and families can slow down and appreciate the wonders of our natural world. While it may be less convenient than a school down the street, this setting contributes to the safety and peace that are essential to the learning that occurs here.

Graduates: Many MMS parents will tell you that the qualities they saw in our juniors, seniors, and graduates convinced them to choose MMS for their own children. These young adults know and respect themselves and care deeply about others and the larger world. They are committed to being successful in ways that are meaningful and sustainable – making lasting contributions in the sciences, medicine, education, law, business, sports and the arts. They are articulate, gracious, thoughtful and caring human beings. MMS graduates have been admitted to this country’s finest colleges and universities.
