6-12th Grade

Washington, DC

Students in grades 6-12 have a varied schedule that is built upon the Common Core Curriculum requirements to complete all subjects. With customized menus each week, students are able to complete grade level work and go beyond their grade level, guided by their interest and ability, as teachers and leadership work to complete menus each week and assess their achievement to ensure mastery-based learning.

 

Each week students leave the classroom for the day to connect their studies to the community. They may be planting, harvesting in an urban garden or visiting a local museum to build on cultural, historical studies that week. Mixed-age learning is at the heart of Mysa, similar to the Montessori model. 

 

School starts at 9:00am with early drop-off from 8:00am and finishes at 3:15pm. Students who don’t participate in an extracurricular sport have PE from 3:30-4:30pm Monday-Wednesday. We invite you to visit on a Tuesday morning and join a tour and informational session!
