MUSE High School

MUSE infuses Passion Based Learning with Core Academics to create learning opportunities that are challenging, individualized and unique. At MUSE High, students play an important role in developing and driving their learning experience. Students’ academic experience is embedded in their project 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, dual enrollment in college courses, service learning activities, student exchange and independent study opportunities support the experiential learning program.
