General School Mission

"The mission of MCHS is to meet the developmental needs of each child, assisting in the total development of the child, helping him construct himself emotionally, socially and intellectually. This goal is accomplished by creating a prepared environment that helps foster the development of each child�s self-reliance, confidence, and respect. The nurturing of these characteristics helps the child become an independent, enthusiastic, problem-solving, lifelong learner." -- Excerpted from school website
