“Mustard Seed provided just the right amount of rigor without exhausting me. Because MSS class sizes are small, I was able to connect with my teachers and get to know them as people. I learned the benefits of individualized attention and to seek help when I need it. My teachers taught me to be curious, take risks, and find creative solutions. I learned to be a leader and to ask questions in class. My friends in high school would often thank me for speaking up in class when they felt too shy.”
“As a woman in engineering, I’m thankful for the opportunities that I’ve been given and recognize that doors have been opened as a result of my education. All children have the right to the education that I had, regardless of their socioeconomic status. I support and admire Mustard Seed’s mission.”
“I loved MSS so much! The holistic approach to education (art, music, literature, social studies, drama, singing, and so much more) has given me many different experiences and has granted me the goal of education according to Dr. King: “Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.” If I have children, I know where they’ll be going!”
Mustard Seed students have gone on to attend these prestigious high schools.
