Our mission at the Morris Academy for Collaborative Studies (MACS) is to involve all of our students in their own learning process so that they become self-motivated, creative problem solvers who can meet the challenges of college and the job market. We believe that the most effective way to provide our students with a meaningful education is through project-based learning, in which students work in groups on projects that are important and relevant to their lives.
2 cool things about MACS
- We have a Roundtable Project Event twice a year, where students are invited to present their project work to the school community and compete to become our Roundtables Grand Champion! Student projects have ranged from building cities with mathematics to designing magazines around current world issues to writing plays.
- We have an award-winning Robotics team that has traveled the nation to compete with other high schools. Our team has even been honored by the New York Yankees on the field!
