Personalized Learning at MTRS
Independent Study: Faculty-supervised experience for students to pursue an independent-study project that is uniquely designed and for their specific interests. (This cannot be used for required courses.)
Internship Program: Available to 11th and 12th graders to provide students with hands-on experience and career exploration while earning high school credit. We'll help you design the internship experience that meets your goals.
Senior Capstone: All seniors design their capstone in the fall. Through a variety of projects, research, and internship opportunities, you will take charge of your learning and showcase your knowledge.
Work Experience Program: A mutual effort between students, employers, and MTRS to provide opportunities that allow students to earn up to 18 credits for part-time employment, gain skills, and discover areas of career interest.
