At MS 324, adolescent learners develop academic discipline by being involved in the process and progress of their own learning as they engage in serious work. Students demonstrate social responsibility through their work in cooperative groups within school and in the community. Learning experiences culminate in individual achievement and personal learning. Student achievement emerges from a belief that our total school population can and must perform at high academic and social levels. Students develop the necessary skills to meet the demands of middle school, the upcoming high school and the essential college curricula.
