Students at MPB are challenged, encouraged, and supported by talented and dedicated teachers throughout their school day. Academic rigor, intellectual curiosity, and high standards are priorities for the faculty and are incorporated appropriately into their lesson plans. The curriculum of the Archdiocese of Denver is the basis for all studies, and it is implemented through the use of Archdiocesan-approved textbooks series and programs. Technology is utilized throughout all subjects and in every grade level but is balanced with experiential and hands-on activities. Classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards, laptops, and iPads to enhance instruction. Students learn how to navigate the digital world appropriately and become responsible digital citizens. We pursue excellence in every subject which is reflected in high, above grade level scores on national standardized tests. Our eighth-grade students typically score at a twelfth grade level on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) which is administered each spring. MPB graduates succeed and thrive as leaders in private and public high schools. They take honors and AP (advanced placement) classes, college concurrent enrollment courses, and graduate from International Baccalaureate Diploma Programs. Educational differences are respected and supported by a Learning Services Coordinator and learning assistants at all grade levels. All students are given an educational foundation that allows them to succeed and achieve their future goals.
