We have an award-winning kindergarten staff. Eighty-eight percent of our kindergarten teachers have a master's degree or beyond. All MPS teachers participate in continuing education and professional development.
Hands-on, minds-on learning
MPS is an innovator in hands-on and minds-on learning. Topics in science, mathematics, language arts, and social studies are actively explored.
We value parent participation through BRAVO!, our volunteer program. Visit the BRAVO! web site for more information.
All kindergarten students receive Spanish and physical education taught by a teacher specializing in those subjects. Art and music experiences are taught by a kindergarten teacher.

Our district's Schools of Choice guidelines allow parents to send their child to their neighborhood elementary school or to any other MPS elementary building based on available space.
Transportation to a non-neighborhood school is the responsibility of the parent.
