mas·ter·y /ˈmast(ə)rē/ n.: possession of great skill, knowledge, or technique
At The Mead School, our definition of mastery goes far deeper than subject matter knowledge.
We focus on strengthening the attributes that empower students to achieve a future with meaning and excellence. We do this by providing an environment and educational model that allows deep attention to connecting the academic, social, and emotional aspects of each student's experience.
My son is happy and learning and he's in Middle School, and those things usually do not go together. That's an experience most kids don't have. I don't know where else you find that.

The single most important aspect of Mead that I carry with me today is a love of learning.
Sarah, Class of 2011
Mead provides a learning environment that nurtures curiosity, creative exploration, critical thinking, and kindness. Our daughter loves her teachers, friends and school community - she is thriving at Mead.
John, Class of 1994, Second Grade Parent
At Mead, my son learned about himself as a learner, discovered new skills and a passion for music, took risks, and found a second home. He was well positioned to succeed in high school and now college!Alumni Parent
I love my school because I feel supported by my teachers and have the freedom to be myself. Mead has strong walls but no ceilings.
