Metropolitan Open School (MOS) is a school with mixed ages—like a home school. Mathematics, science, reading, writing, social studies, French, music, art, dance, and knitting are taught by experienced teachers. MOS provides a non-traditional approach to education for kindergarten through junior high students that allows them to reach their highest achievement levels.
Through a comprehensive, integrated approach to learning, we develop students' innovative critical thinking skills and their sense of social responsibility. We believe in educating the whole child. To accomplish this, we supplement in school work with nearly weekly field trips, including to nature centers, museums, historic sites, zoos, and the MN Landscape Arboretum, as well as attending plays and music and dance performances. Additionally, every year the students put on a holiday program that includes singing, dancing, and acting.
Our diverse student population has come from all over the Twin Cities area. MOS offers reduced tuition to all families that qualify for this support.
