A Brighter Future Begins Here
MHS is one of the best private schools in the nation. Students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade get a wonderful learning experience where they live, learn, work and have fun in a safe, beautiful campus environment with supportive, caring adults. Our test scores exceed state averages, with students graduating with career-related certifications and many with college scholarships. Our facilities are contemporary, and our students have access to drama, sports, music and other extracurricular activities to enrich their experience.
How does the residential aspect work?
The students live in a home environment with 8-12 other students of the same age group and gender and experienced houseparents who provide guidance, structure and support. Children are enrolled at the school year-round, and may travel home for holidays, family activities and summer vacation.
