Meaningful Learning, Purposeful Life

MPFS @home

The faculty and staff at MPFS are allowed the flexibility to craft an outstanding distance learning program and had the ability to do test-runs before the stay-at-home order was put into place. Additionally, each family has been equipped with Chromebooks to ensure that all MPFS students, regardless of finances, are able to successfully participate. 

Justice, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion

Social Justice is wide reaching across subjects, and is honored throughout the curriculum all year long. This year we are committed to being more intentional about communicating and sharing our JEDI work with our community, as well as bringing more professional development and family events centered around JEDI topics and engagement.

Friends Education

Friends have been linking intellectual, social and spiritual growth for nearly 400 years. Teachers in Friends schools aim to expose children to a “way of seeing the world” that will have a lasting impact on their lives, nurturing a passion for the truth and concern for social justice; and confidence that they can make a difference.

Service Learning

Our belief that our students are preparing for morally-based, global citizenship impels us to utilize the world around us, so they learn that there’s a larger community of which they are a part, that they can participate in it helpfully and that they can influence the lives of others in powerful, positive ways.

STEAM Education

STEAM Education is the integration of science, technology, engineering, art, math, and music across grades. The cross-curriculum, project-based approach to STEAM at MPFS prepares students for critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, adaptability, and more in a quickly advancing world.

Get to Know Your Grad, Samantha: Countdown to the Class of 2021 Graduation!

What interests have been sparked during your time at MPFS?
I don't think I’ve tried anything new. I'd say things that I started went further here. Especially with my academics. That's the reason I came here to further my academics and I think that happened. I remember when I first started here in 5th grade, we used the Van Der Graaf generator which was really fun. It's a lot of hands-on science labs and experiments here, which has really interested me in science.
