Dear Modern Knowledge Schools Families,
I am very excited to embark on a new journey as the principal at Modern Knowledge High School. It is an honor and privilege to work in such a great school community. These past two years as a classroom teacher have allowed me to get to know the students, teachers, staff and parents.
It is my hope that Modern Knowledge High School will be a place where staff and students want to come everyday. Together, we will work hard to provide a school climate where teachers collaborate together and support one another’s work, helping students to be successful. Student academic and social growth will continue to be our focus. At MKS, the goal of education is to provide an environment to the pupils which incorporates authentic learning and personal development. It allows learners to solve the types of complex problems they face in today’s ever changing and ever evolving world.
Our school has an outstanding reputation for establishing high expectations and achieving academic results. Our students’ talents are constantly being developed, through the arts; digital and performance, along with varied co-curricular activities, like MUN, Student Council and National Honor Society. We believe that excellence is the gradual result of always striving to do better, hence our Motto “Making Kids Successful!”
As the principal, I will support and guide teachers and staff in providing the best educational setting for our students. It is important that both students and teachers are provided opportunities and given the support for this to happen. Together, we will celebrate the successes along the way, while we continue to find ways to improve our instructional practices.
In conclusion, I wish you all a very wonderful and a gainful school year.
My door is always open and I encourage dialogue that is focused on making our school even better.
Together, we can achieve the extraordinary!
Dr. Manouchka Pierre
High School Principal
