• In order to move on to the next grade, students must pass three out of their four academic subjects (Math, ELA, Science, SS).  To pass a class, students must earn an average of 60% in the class for the year, or 180 points.  To calculate points earned, students can add up their grades from each of the three trimesters.   Any grade below 50% is automatically bumped up to a 50% to give students a chance to recover their year average.  Students must pass at least one class during the year to be eligible for summer school.  A maximum of two classes can be taken during summer school.  If a student does not pass at least one academic class during the year, they will need to repeat the grade.  

  • MESMS has a student-led Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) called Spectrum!  The group is open to all MESMS students. Our GSA provides LGBTQ+ youth and allies a space to get to know one another, develop a sense of community, and focuses on providing a safe and supportive environment for all students at MESMS, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.  

    Spectrum is free and meets once a week on Thursdays, before school at 7:30am.  Spectrum's staff advisor is Melissa Lake.  Please email her with any questions at mmlake@shschools.com.
