Ninth Grade Academy
All ninth grade students at MHS are considered members of the Ninth Grade Academy. The Ninth Grade Academy is a bridge to a successful high school, college, and career experience.
The Ninth Grade Academy is housed, for the most part, in a separate building — the George Inness Annex. It provides a safe space and climate in which to make the big moves that you are making in ninth grade – academically, emotionally, and socially.
The Ninth Grade Academy helps to ensure that you have the skills, desire, and confidence to succeed. It gives you an intensive academic experience and a level of support and encouragement only available in such a small learning environment.
Because of the flexibility a small learning environment provides, we are uniquely able to help you overcome school adjustment issues. The Ninth Grade Academy has its own Assistant Principal, Student Assistance Counselor, Guidance Counselors, and Nurse familiar with and sensitive to the issues facing teenagers at this stage of their development.
