Prospective parents sometimes ask me, “Why should we choose a Mennonite education for our student?” My answer? An EMS education offers strong academics and so much more!
When they visit, I hope they – and their student – can feel that EMS is a place where:
- Joy for learning is cultivated. Teachers know each student and create space for exploration, questions, and risk taking.
- Life skills grow. From kindergarten work stations to senior presentations, students
are coached to communicate, collaborate, develop self awareness and empathy, and learn conflict resolution skills.
- We are a community. Relationships are as important as academic success, and we strive to be a place where everyone belongs. When we get it wrong, we hear from those who have been harmed, and work to repair relationships.
- We are grounded in faith. Jesus is our guide as we learn and grow together.
