Meta School for Empowered Young Adults
By: Megan Lloyd
AP Lang & Comp
Block 4B
MS Mission Statement:
"The Meta School for Empowered Young Adults is committed to providing the best education available for the next generation. It is they who will inherit our country and our world; at MS we are dedicated to providing your child with a safe and stimulating learning environment, advanced technologies, and personalized and attentive instruction in which we can be confident in their ability to assume their role as responsible young adults."
Our Main Focus
An
informed
society, is an
intelligent
society
Teach practical, vital skills for life on your own
Though everyone is unique, when a student performs exceptionally he/she will be recognized for their success.
Consideration, "life happens." We realize that our students understand the importance of education, but also have other things that take precedent.
Education is important, but not everything. No test can measure a child's self worth.
Finally, and most importantly, each of you are fearfully and wonderfully made (FWM), you are God's original masterpiece, and he doesn't make junk.
Meta:
Meta is derived from the Greek word μετανοέω or metanoeó (met-an-o-eh'-o) meaning "change." We want our students to
be
the change.
It is a private high school for grades 9-12, solely because it contains some religious aspects that Separation of Church and State might not agree with, therefore it must be funded by outside sources such as alumni, parent boosters, donations etc.
