Middle School  Parent  Resources


 

  • What is the MIPS School of Music
    • A program that offers individual lessons
      • Piano 
      • Guitar
      • Voice
      • Music Theory
  • How will my child be placed for the right curriculum workload
    • Our mentors work with each student to design a custom-fitted learning pathway that matches the interests, talents, and needs of the student. Each student will take an initial NWEA assessment that’s used to determine the child’s learning level. Using these NWEA scores as a starting point, the mentor will then work with the student and guardian to build a course schedule using curriculum, courses, and timing that will help them succeed.
  • What if my son or daughter was expelled from their old school
    • MIPS isn’t a perfect fit for everyone, but for many students, it’s a place to start fresh. Most young people who develop behavioral issues in the traditional brick and mortar setting have experienced (or are still experiencing) peer pressure, bullying, and anxiety. For many of these students, the safe, quiet, and relaxed nature of an online learning environment can give them the space to step back, breath, and start moving in the right direction again. The one-on-one mentor relationship provides a level of support and care that many students simply do not receive in a traditional school environment.
  • Are there any foreign language programs
    • We offer entry level foreign language courses to middle school students. These classes give middle school students the opportunity to earn high school credit, depending on performance.
  • How much does this cost
    • MIPS is FREE. As a state-funded public charter school, we offer 100% tuition-free education for Michigan students.
  • Are there any sports programs offered through Michigan International Prep School
    • MIPS is in the early stages of launching our first athletic program, the MIPS Running Club. Club members will have the opportunity to participate in several 5Ks throughout the year.
    • Additionally, MIPS offers a Taekwondo course for students in the Oak Park/Detroit area.
