MSR’s future Upper School building will be located on our Brier Creek campus amidst 40 acres of forest, streams, and wildlife in southern Durham County. This campus will provide students the care, support, and freedom to be themselves. It means more space, more masterful teachers, more experiential learning, and more opportunities to collaborate across grade levels.
Green learning “collaboratories” and environmentally unobtrusive learning stations throughout our 40 acres will allow students to benefit from both indoor classroom and outdoor learning opportunities through environmental awareness, scientific field studies, community service, and other forms of outdoor education.
The Upper School will emphasize the deep integration of academic subject matter, student-directed and student-paced learning, practical life skills, social and emotional intelligence, and other real-life learning by providing:
- A college counseling program that intentionally prepares students for application and admission to a range of best-fit colleges and universities.
- Extraordinary opportunities for collaborations and real-world internships.
- Hands-on experience and exposure to a diverse range of art and music forms and materials.
- A robust, competitive athletics program, with plans to add new teams to our lineup, including boys’ and girls’ lacrosse and tennis and girls’ field hockey.
