School Notes

  • My City School spends the first three weeks of school exploring children`s strongest intelligences and then creating activities that allow children to use those individual strengths to learn.Students learn to develop confidence in their capabilities at My City School.
  • The foundation of personality is built on confidence and self-esteem. Feeling competent develops confidence which leads to developing positive self-esteem. When children feel competent they will be willing to explore their world which results in learning. At MCS, we help to strengthen this confidence that allows them to thrive.
  • MCS offers up to fivefreeworkshops a year for the community, parents, educators etc. that teach additional ways to reach students and make learning easier. Sharing our program and skills with the community allows us to make a move towards changing education for those with Learning Differences, and furthering thebelief that education should be made accessible to all.
