Campus Life

Middle school schedules include a physical and creative outlet for each class group daily as part of the curriculum (in the form of art classes and classes that include physical exercise), as well as a recess period and a lunch period. Students have some longer block period classes in the morning and 45-minute long classes in the afternoons. The school day for middle school runs from 9:00-3:25; during this time students are only allowed to use personal technology devices under supervision by a teacher for learning purposes. Students are thus strongly encouraged to socialize and enjoy the beautiful natural setting during their breaks.

Students participate in a weekly Life Skills class during which they may work through social and emotional issues. MMS maintains one cohesive class group at each grade level; the group travels through their day together. During Life Skills, trained professionals help each class group to understand one another better. In addition, during times when no issues are pressing, the class studies relevant topics such as media literacy and digital citizenship, and also hosts experts in health topics.
