Seniors spend half of their school day at MCIS, where they develop and execute group projects under the guidance of faculty. The curriculum was developed in partnership with the district and Dr. Thom Markham, an expert on project-based learning. MCIS includes a mixture of learn labs and resource labs grouped around a large innovation zone. Interior glass and open environments create a university-level atmosphere and encourage collaboration and the cross-pollination of ideas. From collaboration to individual study, the variety of learning environments throughout MCIS support all of the different ways in which modern students learn.
The learning environment is fluid. You can see it as the students move through the space. I love watching the magic happen as the students come in every morning. This is Disneyland for me.
