We develop collaborative critical thinkers that take on challenges and solve problems. At whatever “level” students enter, all students will graduate with the skills required to pursue their dreams to be innovators and change agents. Ensuring that we use student data, we as educators implement creative interventions by our own design to ensure thinking skills are practiced, developed, and assessed through tasks, inquiry, and research. We welcome families to engage in the development of their children by participating in conferences, presentations, and symposiums. Through imagination and innovation, every student in our care will succeed and excel at achieving any goal or dream they set. Together, we will build a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.
OUR COLLECTIVE PURPOSE STATEMENT
We educate and INSPIRE the leaders and problem solvers of tomorrow.
OUR CORE VALUES
Our seven core values- Integrity, Nerve, Supportive, Partnership, Imagination, Respect, and Excellence (INSPIRE) are grounded in our institution’s principles that students will be leaders and individuals who will change the future of their communities and science and technology at large. Our core values shape our existence and inspire us to do what is right, serve our community, work hard and learn as much as we can. At MCSM our core values are treated as a matter of obligation and are at the root of our daily decisions, actions, and behaviors.
At MCSM we believe in high morals and ethical standards that are rooted in our core values. We represent the highest standards of personal and professional ethics in all aspects of our school. We uphold and collaboratively enforce the rules and practices that govern INSPIRE. We stand up for our equity and excellence and accept responsibility for our own mistakes and commit to making things right by actions not just words. We consider and treat academic dishonesty as a very serious offense, and work to remedy each case with each student to rectify and correct the situation.
At MCSM we strive to build a community of fearless teachers and students to tackle the daily challenges that present themselves to our community. We communicate and share information openly with each other. We have difficult conversations, when necessary, that push our collective thinking further on issues of equity and access. We recognize and reward accomplishments and we share success and failures so that we can learn from each other. We hold one another to high expectations, including college and job preparation.

We collectively use our bright ideas to spark the change within the building. Together at MCSM we own each problem and challenge, here, no one is alone, and we commit to using our imaginative solutions and we ensure that they do not fail. At MCSM, we understand and agree what failing forward looks like and feel safe to take risks to keep MCSM great for students, their families, and the communities we represent.
