- About MMS
Behind the exceptional natural setting and inspiring educational philosophy that is Mount Madonna School (MMS), is its most significant ‘natural resource’: a diverse faculty, administration and staff of enthusiastic, creative, and dedicated individuals, who together bring a broad range of personal and professional experiences to the community.
The Connection, 2014-15, an annual publication for families, friends and alumni of Mount Madonna School.
The day was a hot 85+ degrees. The greens were, well, quite green considering the drought. Smiles and camaraderie, and good old-fashioned competition flourished. Three teams emerged the victors, with the fitting result that the Randy Getz memorial golf team of 3 again placed amongst the top (having clinched #1 for quite a few years).
We are pleased to welcome back to all of our wonderful returning faculty members, with a special welcome to new faculty.
The reviews are in and the audience says "Fabulous!"
Ramayana! 2015 was amazing from top to bottom, from forest animals to guards and dancers, to demons and monkeys and all of the royalty, tribes and colorful characters, the vibrant sets, lighting, makeup, band, choir and spectacular costumes and dedicated directors, crew and volunteers! Kudos, one and all!
