Criteria for Membership in the Coalition of Residential Excellence
This year MHS will celebrate 109 years as a Home and School focused on bringing opportunity to thousands of boys and girls from across the country who are affected by poverty.
MHS is a founding member of CORE and is dedicated to breaking the cycle of generational poverty by offering students educational programs unavailable in their home communities, such as small class sizes; access to the latest technology; and focus on an individual student’s needs, interests and abilities. The school also provides wrap-around programs at no charge to enhance student learning and progress. Nearly 90 percent of MHS graduates pursue postsecondary education.
Our Founders were not insular as they worked to establish our Home and School. MHS appreciates and values the good relations and networking CORE provides in the best interest of our staff, students, and families. Together we benefit from smaller and larger organizations, from new and older organizations, the many opportunities CORE brings.
We are proud to be a member of CORE as we work together, and are committed to best practice in the best interest of our students and mission.
