Even for the youngest students in our District, there are opportunities for activities outside the academic day.
In many schools, visual and performing arts, physical education, and even recess take a back seat to traditional academics. At MTES, we see all of these as essential components of a well-rounded, whole-child education, even in athletics
Important, too, in our ever-connected, busy lives is learning how to take time to relax, to be aware of stressors, and to reflect. We know this is a skill best learned at a young age, and that's why we build in time for mindfulness sessions. Our students participate in many service projects. All together, these experiences enhance the academic environment (and are often interwoven in it) and provide students with opportunities to develop passions and to discover themselves, not just as students, but as individuals.
