Students working together on a school project

Our students develop emotional and social awareness of themselves, others, and the world at large, through hands-on collaborative learning and problem solving in a compassionate atmosphere. MCP has zero-tolerance for bullying. Students feel safe, build confidence, and make good friends. There are no "outsiders."

The small class sizes allow students and staff to develop positive and engaging relationships. All students learn public speaking and are encouraged to take on leadership roles. Students participate in student council, as well as clubs, field trips, events, and school-wide activities and festivals.

All learners benefit from working with neurologically diverse peers. This includes students who process information differently, students who are gifted, as well as those who learn kinesthetically. In contrast to conventional schools, MCP students are exposed to a wider range of learning styles and problem solving tactics.
