Hello MSSM Community!

After a long and successful year at the Maine School of Science and Mathematics, it is finally time to rest. We wish the best of luck to all of the graduated seniors and will miss seeing their faces! The MSSM class of 2017 graduates will be attending a wide variety of universities this Fall. A few of these universities (out of many!) are the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Maine, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Colby College. Over the Summer, many rising seniors will be entering college mode; Common Application essays will be written, SATs will be taken, colleges will be visited... our seniors are prepared! We are so excited to start a new year of learning and meet all of the first year students. Have a great, restful Summer and we will see you this Fall! That's a wrap for this week's edition of "So This Happened at MSSM"

It's graduation weekend at MSSM and the atmosphere is both joyful and somber. Many students are relieved to be done with school for the year and several have already moved out. However, for the seniors, the mood is a little different. The seniors must contend with leaving the place that has raised them into the excellent young people they are, and many of their friends will be left behind at MSSM for another year. It's understandably bittersweet for those seniors as they move on to their next adventures. It is often easy for students to see the graduating class and think about all the irreplaceable community members in that class. It is worth remembering, however, that every senior was once an underclassman. Younger students will fill the shoes of their older peers and then some. As we approach graduation and the official end of the year, it's worth reflecting on the qualities of those you will miss and think about how to carry those qualities yourself.

Hello MSSM Community!

Next year, MSSM will be offering many new and exciting courses! These classes range from STEM fields to Humanities–there is definitely a variety! Our new Humanities department chair, Mr. Mark Tasker, will be bringing in Anthropology 1, Anthropology 2, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, and Sociology. These classes will give students an opportunity to earn social science credits through interesting and challenging curriculum. In the science department, Dr. Debbie Eustis-Grandy is bringing back a former class, Genetics and Biotechnology. This is a biology class that explores genetics. Another science class that will be offered is Advanced Topics in Physics. This is an advanced course that students may take after AP Physics C. With all of these new classes, we can expect an awesome year!
