"I have no doubt we all will use our individually unique skills to succeed. I have learned this through Mizzentop and my friends I have made here." – T.J., Class of ‘09
A caring and nurturing environment allows students to feel comfortable and at home as they enjoy the experience of learning.
Small class sizes allow students to receive the individualized attention and immediate feedback that reinforces learning and allows teachers the opportunity to tailor instructional methods to best suit the needs of students both individually and as a group.
More than "teaching" values, the Living Values Program leads our school to "live" the values. Whether in class, in the hallway, at lunch, at a game, or anywhere we gather as a school, our faculty and staff are continually developing traditional and innovative ways to create this reality.
Mizzentop Day School, an independent, co-educational day school for students in Early Childhood through Grade 8, provides a stimulating and innovative educational program dedicated to instilling living values and a love of life-long learning in each student.
Where Does Mizzentop Come From? · Long before the construction of Christ Church on Quaker Hill, stood the Mizzentop Hotel. Admiral John Lorimer Worden named the hotel "Mizzentop" after one of the highest points on a ship - the mizzen mast. Due to the fact that the school was originally situated on top of Quaker Hill, it was befitting to name it Mizzentop Day School.
