THEIR BEST YEARS YET
While many parents fear the middle school years, MPCS embraces them! We are honored to play a major part in molding students during these formative years — shaping their hearts as well as their intellectual minds. With high expecations for academic effort, guidance for adolescent inquiry, and relevant presentation of the gospel, the MPCS middle school is an experience that many kids remember fondly.
Learning occurs best through authentic, hands-on activities promoting problem-solving and relevancy. When lessons are presented with creativity and pertinence, adolescent minds are truly engaged. MPCS students experience this through fully-equipped science labs, math manipulatives, classroom debates, real-word experiences, and 1:1 technology integration (Microsoft surface devices and Google Classroom). Questions are encouraged. Conversation is promoted. Critical thinking is fostered.
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 who deliver instruction in core subjects. An exploratory team of teachers provides daily opportunities for student self-expression in a plethora of athletic and creative areas.
MIDDLE SCHOOL HOUSE SYSTEM
The MPCS middle school consists of five distinct "houses." All 300 middle school students and 30 middle school faculty are divided equally into five different houses based on scripture: Phileo, Chara, Aequitas, Gratia, and Veritas. Each house is led by two house deans (teachers) and two student leaders and contains a chaplain and spirit chairperson. Implementing a "house system" at MPCS is based on years of research by school leadership, including visiting other schools and collecting information about how such a system elevates culture and community.
