Encouragement is given with special seminars and introduction to various authors and their styles.

- Social Studies:

Our social studies focus on U.S. History, World History and Civics. Students need to have a firm base regarding their country, including the pros and cons of the society they live in currently, the past history of that society and the potential future for themselves, their families, and their social interaction. Additionally, world geography and history round out a student's knowledge requirement for the High School curriculum.

Seniors must take a full year of economics, which they learn through experiential lessons for relevancy. The Social Studies core represents an excellent opportunity for students to study as well as question the world around them, the global village, and their immediate community.

A minimum of two consecutive years of foreign language must be taken for graduation, as well as electives in the arts and physical education. MP offers varied electives such as Computer, Water Sports, 20th Century Culture, Stress Reduction, SAT Prep, and Study Skills. These are among the outstanding programs students can choose from in order to fulfill the elective requirements for the Florida High School diploma.

- Teaching About The Holocaust:
In 1994, the state of Florida required all school districts to teach the history of the Holocaust in a manner that leads to understanding the ramifications of prejudice and encourages tolerance. Florida is one of six states to require Holocaust education. The School District of Palm Beach County, composed of more than 200 schools, now serves as a model for other districts across the country looking to implement similar programs.
