MHSA provides intensive arts instruction daily combined with a rigorous academic curriculum. We are a creative, challenging, and nurturing cultural community. MHSA provides a distinguished foundation for higher education.
In addition to its focus on the arts, MHSA also provides an academically challenging educational program that includes Advanced Placement and honors courses. MHSA offers more than 15 AP courses for both high school and college credit. MHSA is one of only five MPS schools designated as an AP Capstone school. AP Capstone provides students with the opportunity to build the independent research, collaborative teamwork and communications skills valued by colleges and employers.
A unique characteristic of the student body is found in how they embrace differences and the worth of every person. Acceptance and tolerance are hallmarks of students pursuing and concentrating on their artistic and academic dreams. We support the belief that our common interests are more powerful than the differences between us.
