Blended Learning

In addition, MTS has a selection of blended learning options, where students learn through a mix of technology and face-to-face instruction. Blended learning allows students to take charge of their own learning through an individualized and engaging experience with the support of an adult in the classroom.

Students learn at their own pace, moving quickly or slowly through the material according to their need. This timeline, reduces stress while increasing satisfaction and information retention.

As students track their progress, they also learn through a variety of activities that are designed with different learning styles in mind. Students become stronger self-acvocates, as they develop the ability to find the resources or get the help they need to reach their goals.

Finally, blended learning helps to prepare them for an ever-changing technological future. It offers real-world skills that directly translate into life skills and increase the ability to be a self-starter and problem solver.

Sister School

MTS Secondary is the sister school to MTS Elementary, and completes the MTS K-12 academic experience. Where as MTS Secondary is located in south Minneapolis, MTS Elementary is in northeast Minneapolis.
