Where students in grades 6-12 begin their journey to be Powerfully Prepared for Learning and for Life
Expert teachers who mentor, inspire, and guide
Teachers at MBS draw on their expertise, professional experience, and love of learning to ignite the curiosity of our students and foster a community of shared intellectual passions.
Meaningful learning for deep understanding
At MBS, students gain deep understanding within and across disciplines by learning how to ask questions, recognize problems, and reason with resilience, creativity, and independence.
Balance that sustains well-being and growth
Education should not be synonymous with pressure. Learning happens when students are afforded the space and support to grow into their potential.
Innovative programs and real-world experiences
Whether it's global studies or advanced classes, MBS persistently asks "what can we do that's different and better?" In the answers we've found, we have discovered new strengths and opportunities as a community.
