        • Your Gift Makes an Impact.

          There is no investment more important and meaningful than the investment in our community’s children.

          Meyer Prep’s exceptional program is only possible with support from our local community donors. Like most independent schools, Meyer Prep relies on financial support to deliver an outstanding education to our students, as tuition covers only a percentage of the operating expenses of the school each year.  Thank you for your continuous support.

IB Middle School

International Baccalaureate

The Middle School at Meyer Prep is an Authorized International Baccalaureate® Middle Years Programme (“IB MYP”) school. A Blue Ribbon School and an International Baccalaureate World School, Meyer Prep is at the leading edge of middle school education globally. 
 
The academically challenging, advanced curriculum encourages your child to think critically and creatively, making practical connections between studies and the real world, preparing for success in future study and in life. Inquiry is championed.
 
A personal and educational safe space, Meyer Prep, and specifically the IB MYP environment, helps students understand that failure is a possible, wholly acceptable and useful outcome. It is not a defining trait. This environment intentionally neutralizes the natural stressors that weigh most heavily on students at this age and stage of development so they can focus on learning. Your child further develops as an active learner and internationally minded young person who empathizes with others, accepts personal responsibility, and understands how to become a self advocate while pursuing a life of purpose and meaning.

The IB MYP is perfectly aligned with the Jewish community day school model. The program empowers your child’s inquiry into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally and globally. The result is young people who are creative, critical and reflective thinkers.

“Equipped with a stellar education and a global mindset, my child is
prepared for anything.”
