The philosophy behind our middle school curriculum is the belief that learning occurs best through authentic, hands-on activities. When lessons are presented with creativity and relevance, adolescent minds are fully engaged. MPCS students experience this through fully equipped science labs, math manipulatives, classroom debates, and technology integration. Questions are encouraged. Conversation is promoted. Critical thinking is fostered.
Real-world experiences and authentic scenarios undergird the core curriculum, promoting problem-solving and lending relevancy. These experiences include an annual student forum, hands-on experiements in science, and overnight academic travel such as the eighth grade week-long trip to Washington D.C.
Our teachers are Georgia-certified educators who are dedicated to the Christian faith and committed to integrating biblical truth into all aspects of school life. Small student-to-teacher ratios are valued for individualized instruction.
Grade levels are organized into academic teams of four to five teachers. Academic teachers deliver instruction in the core subjects while an exploratory team of teachers provides daily opportunities for student self-expression.
