Curriculum Highlights
With a focus on school-wide reading and writing literacy, the staff at MMS uses data-driven instruction to progress student achievement in meeting the Common Core State Standards for college and career readiness. This instruction is differentiated for all students based on academic needs. We support struggling students through our Response to Intervention (RtI) model, as well as our AVID program, a “college readiness system designed to increase school-wide learning and performance through a curriculum focused on rigorous standards, WICR (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Reading strategies), Cornell note-taking, and Socratic Seminars.” For students who excel, we offer honors courses using College Board’s Springboard curricula in reading and math, enrichment activities through RtI, and challenging exemplary extra-curricular programs. As a result of our exemplary programs and curricula, MMS is home to several Carson Scholar award recipients and Merit Scholars.
