- About MMS
The primary goal of the Elementary program is to provide a stimulating, secure environment where students discover a love for learning, build a strong foundation of thinking skills and develop a positive self-image.
Exploration, critical thinking, inquiry and problem solving are employed with the understanding that children learn best by doing. Basic skills are taught within the context of an integrated curriculum in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and health by a credentialed classroom teacher.
Students have enrichment classes with specialty teachers in the subjects of:
- Physical Education
- Science Lab
- Martial Arts
- Library Science and
- Computer Science.
Our Performing Arts program builds confidence, public speaking skills and familiarity with creative expression as students perform for audiences three times per year. (More about Performing Arts)
Field trips expand the program beyond the classroom environment and grades 3 through 5 have a few overnight trips to science camps and Sacramento that are built into the course curriculum. (More about field trips)
Optional after school participation in athletics begins in grades 4 and 5.
Another important aspect of our program centers on our school's location on 355 acres: our ecoliteracy and outdoor learning program.
