Menlo School’s mission is to empower students to explore and expand their interests, reach their fullest potential, develop the skills necessary for success in college, and become ethical, responsible, and engaged members of ever wider communities. At Menlo School, we are passionate about encouraging students to pursue high standards of academic excellence; discover the joy of learning; stretch themselves and raise challenging questions; demonstrate courage, integrity and a commitment to ethical behavior; develop a sense of commitment to purposes larger than themselves; appreciate the richness of diversity; think independently and creatively; take progressively more responsibility for themselves and their education; and lead healthful lives. At Menlo, our vision is to help children make the most of their middle and high school years, to help all students discover their unique gifts and opportunities, and to involve everyone in our community in a challenging, rewarding educational experience. At the center of Menlo School is a deep commitment to the development and welfare of each individual student.
