The American high school has remained static for over a century----even when factoring in creative course offerings, the block schedule and shorter school days. That is about to change at MBTA!




Course work will be accelerated. Upper grade students will have the opportunity to specialize in the area of Environmental, Biomedical or Computer Science and activate realistic plans for the future.
