We are able to provide our students with this level of education not only because small class sizes, but also because we have educators that create a caring environment and get to know each child, making sure every child reaches his/her potential. With this experience and knowledge many of our students continue on to successful secondary schools experiences.
Students learn independence and self-confidence by being in this secure and structured environment. Our core subjects are supplemented with a strong 'Special Areas' division including music, drama, visual arts, computers and physical education. Each of these Special Area classes work throughout the year to integrate what children are learning in core subjects so that their work is constantly overlapping and information is put into context.
In addition to our strong academic core there is also much available outside of the classroom. Children in our Middle School are encouraged to participate in interscholastic sports throughout the year. We offer multiple enrichment programs as well as summer enrichment programming. Typical enrichment programs include art, science, mathematics and homework clubs. We work with local music instructors to provide individual and group instrumental lessons.
We seek to reach our goal of providing a complete educational experience through our personal commitments as educators as well as through implementing a worldwide program developed through the United Nations: the Living Values Educational Program. In Middle School, our advisory program is held twice a week, where children are divided into smaller groups to discuss the non-academic issues of school. During this time teachers and students discuss social and personal topics and take time to create community service projects both inside and outside of Mizzentop. Every month we highlight a different Living Value and look for ways to incorporate it into academic and advisory lessons.
Mizzentop provides a high level of education at a rate that is competitive with other independent education alternatives. Located in Pawling, NY, local New York school districts provide transportation to and from the school.
