How to Talk About MHS
Making the choice to enroll a student at MHS is hard. Some families tell us they don’t know what to say to the important people in their lives. We are here to help. Download our “How to Talk about MHS” flyer for guardians, or contact our admissions recruiters for additional resources.
Building a Home Together
MHS students live in student homes with eight to 12 students of the same age and gender overseen by a full-time married couple. Houseparents partner with grandparents/guardians to teach students life skills that help build character and develop critical thinking skills. Working together, with our resources and your support, we can give your child a caring home life experience.
