Independent thinking, resilience, and self-reliance are intentionally fostered in a safe and caring environment where students exercise choice, build confidence, discover more about themselves through reflection, take risk in learning, sustain their curiosities, and explore and consider lessons.

At MPFS our students are empowered to take risks and exercise choice within a strong, supportive community. A sense of “being in community” is the environment that offers support when mistakes are made, socially and academically. Throughout every day, students are taught and practice empathy, attentive listening, respect, and kindness. “Meaningful Learning, Purposeful Life” is continuously revealed in the attitudes and actions of the members of our community. In addition to these structured settings, the close relationships with teachers who are available to listen and offer guidance help make students feel known and emotionally understood.  This warm social environment gives students the space to learn from their mistakes and feel safe taking intellectual risks.

Problem Solving Skills at MPFS

Problem solving skills make creative thinking possible; inspiring new inventions as well as social and cultural evolution. Not only is problem solving found within a challenging, vigorous program that prepares students to be critical thinkers at MPFS. Problem solving also manifests itself within the students own awareness of their learning styles, during group guidance, service learning, conflict resolution lessons, and peer facilitator programs.

Why is learning in a collaborative environment at MPFS important?

At MPFS, the acronym STEAM stands for the cross-curriculum study of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. In the past decade, jobs that require this kind of collaborative, interdisciplinary thinking have been growing at three times the rate of non-STEAM fields. This kind of education cultivates curious, creative, and capable life-long learners prepared to succeed in whatever field they choose. From fun with robotics between 1st - 3rd grades, dissecting owl pellets in kindergarten, computer programming basics in 1st grade, exploring rocks and minerals in third grade, and brain science in middle school, teachers tackle these subjects with a collaborative approach.

With yearlong, school-wide STEAM programming, along with our intensive STEAM Week, MPFS students are prepared to solve the problems of today and tomorrow. They are able to see a world of infinite possibility.  To learn more click here

Critical Thinking Skills leads to empowered students

At MPFS we empower students by providing them with the tools to build their critical thinking skills. Students are encouraged to be aware of their own thinking and build their discerning skills, to think from the outside in, to use evidence-based reasoning and learn how to focus. We show them how to identify what is missing and have them ask provocative questions about what they are learning. Then we ask them to offer suggestions about how those questions might be answered. Once they have built these skills then they can be agents for ideas seeing a world of infinite possibility. Visit mpfs.org/news to learn more about critical thinking at MPFS.
