Academics

High School | 9-12

At MUSE High School, students play an important role in developing and driving their learning experience. Students’ academic experience is embedded in their passion-based work.
This approach enables teachers to guide students as they make connections across academic disciplines that expand and enrich learning and understanding. MUSE’s interdisciplinary approach fosters opportunities to deeply explore and engage in the humanities, mathematics, science, and the arts.

Students engage in a range of learning activities that deepen their critical thinking skills by connecting learning to real world problem solving. Internships, mentorships, dual enrollment in college courses, service learning activities, and independent study opportunities support the experiential learning program.
