Interesting news update: Among the numerous articles in the news lately about micro-schools and educational pods, the Wall Street Journal posted an article July 24th, that concluded:
“If ever there was a problem in need of a solution, coming up with ways for children to safely attend school in the time of Covid is it.” (WSJ)
MPHS takes that as a challenge. We believe MPHS is the answer to the problem. Not only is it the answer to the problem of needing small schools during a pandemic, Memorial Private is the answer to a lot of problems that our country is facing.
For fifteen years now, Memorial Private has been purposefully leading the way in micro-schools and learning pods. With a successful track record in uniquely structuring teenagers’ schooling, Memorial Private knows that a student’s environment is key. Memorial Private has carefully employed a niche model to keep the school just small enough to know all of our students. This allows us to teach each student individually and in small groups, like no other.
Since 2004, Memorial Private has been perfecting our method for success. We have utilized the best educational research and teaching practices in a small environment where it can actually work. Using full TEA guidelines, and accredited by Cognia/AdancED, Memorial Private also develops specialized curriculum aligning with our teaching methods. This makes learning more suitable to each student. Balancing unique ways of teaching is what Memorial Private is made for.
It is also important to the Memorial Private environment that we have many activities and clubs. As a result, we enjoy the resulting close community that only a small school can create. Not only that, a small school is not just a small school. Rather, it is a whole different and unique way of teaching, of using curriculum, logistics and of being in school.
Memorial Private creates a safe environment that is based on faith and a strong value system.
A well-known doctor and friend, Thomas Clarke, often said: “The only thing that changes is the wisdom of your values.” This concept has been a guiding factor in growing this school.
Welcome back, and welcome to our new families!
