MSSPP offers an ungraded learning environment.  Trimester progress reports and annual standardized testing help monitor student growth.  Our school supports an open door policy where parent/teacher/administration communication is encouraged to create the best learning experience for every student.

In addition to small group instruction, teaching techniques routinely utilized include grouping students according to ability, one-on-one instruction, peer-to-peer cooperative learning and flexible, adaptive learning.
