Marshall Math Science Academy is an application based program serving students in 5th-8th grade. Our program focuses on promoting excellence through the use of STEAM inspired education and curriculum.

STEAM Education is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

Our diverse school community is also focused on college and career readiness. Students use project based learning to enhance communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and computational skills while solving the problems of today.

 

ACCEPTANCE REQUIREMENTS:
Complete applications will be reviewed by the MMSA Admissions Team. Questions or concerns should be directed to Ryan Jones, Principal.

If minimum requirements (2.5 core GPA minimum, including grades from the first and second marking periods in Math, Science, English, and Social Studies) are met and a complete application has been submitted, an interview will be scheduled.

Final admissions determinations are based upon teacher recommendations, grades, attendance, discipline, a writing sample, and an interview.

Parents, guardians, and students will be notified of admissions status on or about May 21, 2020. Students who are accepted will be required to attend the mandatory new student and parent meeting.

Students who are accepted and choose to attend MMSA are expected to continue attending through the end of Grade 8 or as long as residency remains within Harrisburg School District boundaries.

How to prepare for your interview

Please read the question below and be prepared to discuss in your interview.

 

One of the driving beliefs at Marshall Math Science Academy is “Service through STEM.” We believe in trying to make our community and our world a better place through STEM! When you come to sit down and have an interview with us we would like to hear your plans about how you would do this. Pick one of the following and tell us how you would improve it.

An Invention

A System

A Program

An Invention could be in technology that you are familiar with. It could be the blender in your kitchen or the bus that you take to school. A System would be anything that you are familiar with that is a group of things all working together to achieve a goal. This could be anything from school where a group of people are all working together to reach a common goal or a sewer system where a group of pipes and pumps are all working together for a common goal. When we say program we are talking coding and software. Maybe you could talk to us about how you would improve how kids use Roblox or TikTok.

That’s it! Think about something from any of those categories and come ready to talk to us about how you would improve it.
