Grades Nine through Twelve
Students entering upper school encounter an integrated academic and co-curricular program that combines the challenges of coursework, technology, arts, athletics, and community service. The curriculum is designed to further develop the analytic rigor, intellectual depth, and personal responsibility needed for college success and beyond. Upper school work requires great depth and focus, the expectations are high but appropriate for a first-rate college-prep program. The core courses — English, history, mathematics, world languages (French, Chinese, Latin, Spanish), religion, and science are thorough and lively. In addition to the basic requirements for graduation, students may choose to explore a number of elective courses that stretch their creative and analytical interests as they strive to reach their greatest potential.
MB students further distinguish their academic records through participation in Advanced Placement and honors courses. Students also may prepare independently for AP exams in United States History, English Language and Composition, Psychology, Macroeconomics, and Microeconomics.
