Upper Elementary programThe Upper Elementary program, known as "Brown Door" takes place in three classrooms and children spend time in each daily. Though all children spend equal time in all classrooms, they are each assigned a "homeroom" where a teacher watches their progress throughout the year. The homeroom classes are divided with an effort to balance gender and ages in the class.

General subjects include:

  • Math
  • Language arts
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Spanish Language and Cultures
  • Art
  • Music
  • Physical Education
  • Library Science
  • Dramatic Arts


The Upper Elementary program continues to support the lifelong skills of independence, responsibility, self-direction and respect inherent in all of MCS's classrooms. It also prepares students for transition into junior high school and a more traditional classroom set up. In addition to preparing students academically, faculty guides their development on many levels through such activities as:

  • Backpack trips
  • Science camps
  • Weekly student government and class management
  • Community service projects
  • Interscholastic team sports
  • Drama projects
  • California Mission projects
  • Science, Invention and Architecture fairs
