Our vision for academic excellence transforms the learning experience through an inquiry-based and learner-centered approach to education. SMA graduates will reach their full potential as purposeful and impactful leaders who are contributing global citizens.
SMA Prep (grades 6 - 8) is guided by the teaching and learning framework of a whole school IB Middle Years Program (MYP) and has been an authorized IB World School since 2017. The MYP is not a curriculum. Instead it is a framework built upon best practice and current research in understanding how young people learn and the importance of developing within all learners the skills, character and interdisciplinary knowledge required to become a globalized and effective citizen in our modern world.
