  • School Library – Through a $150,000 grant from Library Connections (funded by Peter Flanigan’s Patrons Program), MCHR employs a full-time library teacher and has equipped its library with more than 6,500 books.

  • Technology Integration – MCHR has an up-to-date computer lab, and each classroom has 1-3 computers. Technology is incorporated into everyday coursework.


MCHR’s Thriving Arts Program

  • Every student takes part in violin or voice lessons twice a week.

  • Older students interested in pursuing violin training at MCHR have performed at the Russian Tea Room, the Rainbow Room, and a few have been admitted to a special Juilliard program.

  • Ballroom dancing is offered for 4th, 5th and 8th graders, who go on to compete in a city-wide contest.

  • Creative Classrooms provides the school with a professional art instructor who gives weekly lessons.
