At MRGS, we believe that learning should mimic the real world, thus our teachers guide our students through a curriculum that simulates real world experiences with real world expectations. Our students engage in simulations, presentations, investigations, problem-solving activities, extensive research, intensive use of technologies, and mentorships.
Much of the work that our students engage in is collaborative in nature, not competitive. Our teachers also work in collaboration to plan interdisciplinary learning activities because, in the real world, ideas and concepts are not learned or used in isolation. At least 75% of the instruction in our courses is interdisciplinary in nature and over half of the lessons are structured on the principles of problem-based learning.
Massanutten and Lord Fairfax Community College have partnered to offer our students with the opportunity to dual enroll courses through both institutions, which enables students to earn college credits while still in high school.
