  • Registration for Evening Scholars

    Summer Scholars registration opens May 13th!

    If your high school student is behind in credits toward graduation and needs credit recovery, this is an excellent and essential opportunity. 


    There will be two sessions: 


    • Session 1: July 1 - July 19 (no classes July 4&5)

    • Session 2: July 22 - August 7 

    • Classes meet from 9:00 am - 12 pm

    • All classes are in-person and attendance is required. 

    • Locations: Grant HS (Session 1 ONLY), Franklin HS, McDaniel HS, Roosevelt HS 

    • Exact class offerings and site assignments have not been finalized yet; however Benner recommends connecting beforehand to discuss class preferences and sites so that when registration opens up on the 13th she can register first preferences ASAP.

    • To register, students must meet with their counselor (Benner) to review their transcript, and registration is by the counselor

    Please contact your counselor if you’d like to register or if you have any questions.  gbenner@pps.net

  • Tour MLC!

    Exploring school options to determine the best fit for a student can be both exciting and anxiety producing. We believe getting to actually see the surrounding location and have a guided tour of the building can be very helpful in this decision-making process.  To accommodate the numerous requests for tours, we offer a monthly tour for up to 10 interested families on the second Thursday of each month at 3:45pm and will last approximately 45-60 minutes.

    I support healthy work and home life boundaries and therefore do not check or send e-mails after work hours. I make every effort to respond to emails within 24-48 hours. Thank you!
