At MTRS, the theme of senior year is PRAXIS: the practice or practical application of something, as distinguished from the theory of it. In simpler terms, it’s time for seniors to take everything they’ve learned – in school and out – and DO something. This something is the Senior Capstone, a long-term independent project that all seniors have to complete in order to graduate from MTRS. Students design projects, do research, set goals, make amazing things happen, and celebrate their successes. Through Capstone, MTRS seniors have the opportunity to pursue their personal passions while investing in their futures and contributing to the broader community. Learn more about Capstone Projects.
