MSS is Powered byThe Path to Success

Path to Success: Grit, Gratitude, Optmism, Empathy, Citizenship, Integrity, Self-Control and Curiosity.

We are committed to providing all children with the educational opportunity that we believe is a fundamental right. Our mission insists that our schools support academic achievement. Students’ academic achievement depends on our ability to teach a strong academic curriculum and develop the personal skills of our students. We focus on the development of grit, gratitude, optimism, empathy, citizenship, integrity, self-control, and curiosity because strength in each of these areas is a high indicator for success and happiness in school, work and relationships. At MSS our academic curriculum and social emotional focus are putting children on the path to success.

“Meeting Street Academy is my family. They taught me that I am valuable. I am an asset to the world…They asked me, ‘What is your dream?’ I had never been asked that before. The MSS community gives me the strength to pursue my dreams.”

“MSA is a family. Once you’re in, you’re in. They said they would follow our kids from K-3 to college and they actually lived up to what they said they would do. Not only did MSA challenge my daughter academically but it also exposed her to new things that she probably wouldn’t have been exposed to at our previous neighborhood school. Our journey at MSA was exciting and rewarding. They actually walk the walk.”
