I want to thank MPHS staff and teachers for all their hard work. Our son, Mike, graduated from Memorial Private High School 1 year ago. His teachers there were great at working with students as individuals, both those more advanced learners and those with specific challenges. This past year Mike studied and earned a certificate as a pharmacy technician. And Monday he starts his first job in his field. We are so excited to see him using his strong abilities and continuing to work through challenges to become a productive young adult.Joan Gonzalez

Memorial Private School is really different from most private schools because of their research project-based approach to education. They partner with top universities and companies to give teens a chance to experience practical applications to subject matter. Small classes, individualized attention, and strong values are integral at MPHS. As a former private school administrator for over 15 years, I am impressed.
