Philosophy and History


  • Classrooms are structured and heterogeneously grouped in all grades

  • High expectations for academic performance, self-discipline, and attendance prevail

  • MPTS uses a heterogeneous workshop model in the areas of literacy and math, where children of a full-range of abilities are taught in the same classroom setting. During reading and math workshop blocks, children are working in small groups. These small groups are flexible and based on grade level standards and skills aligned to state adopted standards. This grouping provides opportunities for independent study as well as small group collaboration

  • MPTS is devoted to ensuring we meet the needs of all students. MPTS has scheduled Intervention/Enrichment (I/E) for every class in grades K-5. During this block of time, students work with support staff and classroom teachers to meet student needs. Support is provided by the Exceptional Children’s program, Talent Development program, ESL program and tutor support

  • Citizenship and character education are stressed and supported through the implementation of The Leader in Me, based upon Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

  • Parental involvement and support are expected


  • The school was built in 1928 and opened as Myers Park Public School

  • The cafeteria was added in 1954, and the multi-purpose room in 1972

  • It became a traditional school in 1974, the first traditional school in the system

  • A Time Capsule was buried May 6, 1976, opened May 6, 2001, and buried again May 6, 2004 - to be opened in 25 years

  • Our school was completely renovated and doubled in size in September, 2003

  • MPTS implemented The Leader in Me in 2014. We were officially  named a Lighthouse School in March 2021. This is the highest honor awarded to Leader in Me schools who exemplify the highest level of implementation and serve as a model school
