MEMS is a progressive school that provides a safe, nurturing environment and curriculum that is rich and rigorous. Believing that all students can learn and achieve, we provide an educational environment that meets the needs of all students and facilitates their cognitive and social-emotional growth. Our professional staff includes teachers of the core curriculum subjects, the arts and technology, teachers of special education, and student assistance personnel, who work diligently toward this goal.
MEMS has been recognized by the state and other educational organizations for its educational excellence and engaging programs. This recognition supports the school's community learning concept where 7th and 8th grade students work collaboratively with an interdisciplinary team of teachers to acquire the knowledge, skills and self-confidence to succeed in middle school and be ready to accept the challenges of high school. Our strong academic curriculum, state of the art technology, diverse extra-curricular activities and championship sports program provide opportunities for students to exhibit excellence in all areas. The infusion of technology is a powerful tool that stimulates learning, enhances presentation, fosters creativity and allows students to excel in their academic endeavors. With our 1:1 technology initiative, students are connected to the world of learning. Over 1200 students and staff pass through our doors each day. On a daily basis, students are actively engaged in every classroom, either conducting a science experiment, role-playing a historical event, collaborating on a multimedia presentation, using manipulatives to solve math equations, conversing in a foreign language, or creatively designing a clay sculpture. Students may also participate in a variety of school-wide events, clubs and competitions, such as SITES, Social Studies Fair, World Language Fair, Future Teachers of America, Battle of the Books, National History Day, Student Council, Spelling Bee, Geography Bee, Student Council and Math Challenges. As educational professionals, we continually assess our program and enhance curriculum and design programs for our students to meet the challenges as they move forward in their educational careers.
