The Eagles are Soaring... For Real!

Meyer Prep strives to give students engaging and active learning opportunities.

One of those incredible electives is aviation, led by Captain Rivera.  This week in aviation, students used the flight simulator to learn about flying an aircraft and actually tried their hand at it!

Media Production Elective Goes Live!

Students in Meyer Prep Middle School’s media production elective use a hands-on approach to learning as they rotate through each station of the media production studio to discover the purpose and importance of each piece of technology and equipment.
