Upper School Curriculum

Upper SchoolRequirements in science, world language, humanities, and the arts reflect our belief in the value of a broadly based liberal arts education and our thorough knowledge of current requirements for college admission.

We recognize that the education each graduate experiences is unique. As a small school, we are able to offer each student individualized attention as he or she shapes an educational program; we enjoy working closely with students and parents as they make important choices for education and life beyond MFS.

The unique MFS Peer Leadership Program allows ninth grade students to be paired with senior peers, who mentor them during their transition into the Upper School. Seniors introduce ninth graders to traditions such as Spirit Week and also help them confront moral and ethical issues.

In Grades 10, 11, and 12, students may begin to pursue special interests and majors. We design programs that are tailored to students’ strengths, interests, and long-term goals.
