What do you love about MPA?
We love the MPA community, and the impact being part of the community has on our young child.
How is your child encouraged to dream big and do right at MPA?
As a student in PreK, Anna is surrounded by older students who model this behavior. She wants to do everything they do.
If your child has attended another school, how has your experience at MPA been different?
The engagement of the teachers at MPA is second to none. Also, an often overlooked component of the school is the behind-the-scenes faculty. Whether it’s the Facilities staff ensuring kids get across the parking lot safely, the Development Office planning and executing the auction, or the Admission staff greeting each student by name on their first day of school, the way the school is run also makes a big difference in the parents’ experience.
What would you tell another parent considering MPA?
MPA is the best decision you can make for your child.
In what ways has MPA prepared your child for life in the 21st century?
I think this has happened in two ways. One is having access to technology even as a PreK student. The second way is the development of an inclusive, compassionate view of the world.
What do you hope for your child in 20 years?
I hope that she looks back on her MPA career as one of the building blocks of her success in life.
