What attracted you to apply at MP Schools? I know firsthand how dedicated and knowledgeable the teachers, staff, and administrators of Mineral Point are. The support of parents and the community are also invaluable in making MPSD the wonderful learning environment it is.

Quotable: I believe we are all in education together: students, parents/families, teachers, staff, administrators, and communities. The more we work together and stay focused on common goals, the more successful we will be.
