Looking Back with Fond Memories and Moving Forward Prepared
With the class of 2017, MCDS graduated its eleventh class, and our students report a smooth and successful transition moving from high school into the college or university setting.
Note from a Graduate
“I came to MCDS in eighth grade yearning for a new and more challenging educational experience. In my first year at MCDS I worked very hard, simultaneously making up for deficits as well as attempting to master the MCDS curriculum. Throughout the years, the teachers and curriculum continued to give me an education experience which was both enjoyable and challenging; this allowed me to reach my true potential. MCDS gave me a work ethic. The education provided not only the tools for cognition but metacognition. Outside of class, I made friends with people different from myself, which helped me to overcome the societal boundaries which so often are divisive elsewhere.
The college advising program at MCDS is designed to assist students and families in identifying colleges and universities that will best match a student’s strengths, interests, and aspirations beyond high school. Our students have been accepted to top colleges and universities.
