Spanish: All students, from our 18 month old classroom through Middle School, receive lessons in Spanish. The curriculum layers from year to year and once students reach the 9-12 class, they are tested in Spanish. Middle School students use the same text books as the local IB (International Baccalaureate) high school program. Spanish is integrated into all of our school performances and also offered as a week of summer camp.
Art: Art is integrated into the prepared environment of Early Childhood classrooms. Students in Elementary and Middle School attend additional weekly art lessons in one of our two art classrooms. Lessons include the study of artists, techniques and media.
Music: Instruction about composers and types of music begins at an early age. Early Childhood classrooms are rich with instruments from around the world and music is used on a daily basis. Students in Elementary attend additional weekly music lessons. Students in Kindergarten and above perform in an annual Winter Performance. Our end-of-the-year performances also incorporate music.
Physical Education: Movement and play are integral parts of our Early Childhood program. A formal physical education (PE) program is part of weekly instruction for Elementary and Middle School students, including fitness, health, and nutrition.
Tennis: By acquiring the property that was formerly the Pensacola Racquet Club in 2011, MSP is now able to offer tennis instruction to students in Elementary and Middle School. Tennis afterschool classes as well as summer camps are also available to those students ages 5 and older.
