"Inspiring and Preparing Young People to Live Consciously with Themselves, One Another, and the Planet."
Learning is Alive: We pursue education fearlessly, knowing that children are naturally “switched-on” when they are learning about something they love. We strive to cultivate and sustain that in-the-moment exuberance.
Interconnections are Critical: Nurturing relationships between self, one another, place, and planet is critical to the MUSE mission. We encourage global stewardship by balancing human and ecological needs; and we collaborate across ages, communities, and cultures.
Sustainability is Key: MUSE is a high-performance learning lab that demonstrates eco-literacy and serves as a beacon of sustainable living and design. We are committed to:
Restoring and celebrating nature
Serving as a champion of everything green
Between our two campuses, MUSE grows produce in over 100 raised garden beds. Students participate in every step of the growing process from seed to harvest to food preparation. Students develop an appreciation for nature as well as an understanding of the complexities of or current food system through this growing process. We aim to train the next generation of food policy and environmental justice leaders.
