MSB students are supported in becoming active seekers of knowledge. We provide environments where students have the freedom to pursue answers to their own questions and learn life skills set for the digital future.
MSB is delighted to partner with Australian design software company Canva to provide our Middle School students a 3-month tailor-made program. Students will delve into graphic design basics and hone their skills by designing their own magazines. The first lesson began this week with an overview of graphic design.
Canva is a graphic design platform, used to create graphics, presentations, posters, documents and other visual content with 30 million monthly active users across 190 countries.
In alignment with Canva’s value and mission, they recently launched an education product, 100% free for teachers and students, to empower every classroom in the world with creativity.
Another example of students taking ownership of their learning is the addition of Spanish class. This is one of the three proposals pitched to school administration by students in their leadership class to add a third language to the current Dual Language Program.
“We heard the students’ voice and accepted the proposal,” said Head of School Benjamin Farrell. “It wasn’t easy for students to go through the process and come up with ideas to make MSB a better school. They were challenged to pursue answers to their questions.”
MSB is always on the lookout for partners and guests to come in and share their experiences and expertise with our students. Last year, we were honored to host online sessions with renowned American author Julia Cook, Dr. Briana Pobiner from the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and archaeologist Jen Thum from the Harvard Art Museums.
