Middle School Principal's Message

You are here

Welcome to the 2018-2019 Modern American School Year! Our commitment at The Modern American School (MAS) is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment to empower our students to become lifelong learners, global thinkers, and responsible citizens with leadership qualities plus universal values while instilling pride in one’s cultural identity. High standards and expectations for each student in regard to academic performance, co-curricular participation, and responsible citizenship are the foundation of the Modern American School. It is with pride we hold these high standards and ask each of our students to commit to maintaining the extraordinary record of achievement and contribution which has been the legacy of MAS students. 

Please know we highly value home and school communication at Modern American School. This type of communication is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us should the need arises and to stay informed about your child’s assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings through PowerSchool, our MAS electronic grade book, and our MAS newsletter. 

Again, we welcome you to Modern American School and to our wonderful learning community. Our school is a place alive with much energy, enthusiasm, and a high standard of excellence. It is a place where opportunities abound.
