We are pleased to share with you our commitment to providing a unique, safe and stimulating learning environment for students of all ages. At MMS, children are supported in discovering and expressing who they are, and parents can trust that their child will be truly known and cared for in an inspiring educational program.
Our campus, on 375 acres of redwood forest, meadows and lakes, is located on the summit between Gilroy (southwest of San Jose) and Watsonville (southeast of Santa Cruz). This peaceful, natural environment is both invigorating and relaxing. Students, ages 3 through 18, enjoy hiking and observing nature while pursuing their educational studies on campus.
MMS believes in a strong partnership between parents, students and teachers. Our families appreciate the connection between home and school as we support and encourage each other while nourishing our students’ growth and success.
Our admissions team is available to assist you with any questions you may have. Please contact our Admissions Office by phone at 408-847-2717 or email
