MACS’s founders are committed to creating a diverse community of learners and believe ALL children have the potential to learn and benefit from a MicroSociety public charter school education. The application process is geared toward allowing the school to understand student needs and abilities in order to ensure their experience at MACS is a positive one, should the student enroll. Equally important the application process is also designed to enable families to make an informed choice about a student’s potential for success with a differentiated, active engagement approach to learning within a MicroSociety school setting.
MACS strives to provide a positive learning environment and does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, national origin, religion, disability, familial status, parental status, or sexual orientation in its’ employment policies, enrollment policies and educational programs. MACS offers a unique opportunity for students to become involved in their own education. There is an expectation for students to make a commitment to excellence and strive to be genuinely involved with all the opportunities the school provides. Parent, as well as student involvement, begins at the time of application because ultimately the success of the school with a very lean operating budget will depend enormously on the commitment of parents and guardians to volunteer and support the school’s operation.
