This school is for below average students who may find the "community method" of teaching comforting.

This school has poor academic academic standards that seem designed to "dumb down" above average students, and no facilities for any extra-curricular activities. Unless your child cannot cope in a "regular" school, there is very little reason to send your child to this school.

This school is a small school that seems to be run like a club for kids of board members and faculty. If you are not a part of this exclusive club, as we found out, your child will not be treated equally. The academic standards are quite low, and extra curricular activities are minimal. There are very ...  Read more

I have three kids spread out across the different programs at MSS. The school has a very challenging curriculum and places every year their students in the best high schools in the area. Moreover, the learning takes place in a broad multidisciplinary setting, providing the kids with the ability not only ...  Read more
