One of the most fundamental principles in education is that every student has a unique learning style and set of personal needs. MHS students are generally very bright, with few behavior problems. For a wide variety of reasons, however, many have not achieved their full potential in a traditional educational setting. Here are some of the most common reasons students choose to attend our school, and how they benefit from our approach:
- Students can do more self-paced and self-directed learning at MHS.
- Student’s primary learning style is not compatible with textbook and lecture-based instruction.
- Students need more individual assistance from teachers, or more structure and accountability.
- Students want safe, close, and more supportive relationships with teachers and peers.
The MHS schedule enables students to get jobs and internships, engage in community service, or take courses elsewhere.
