Mesa Center for Success West (MCS) is a public/private partnership school. The partnership provides district with local control and support, fluidity of placements, and significant fiscal savings.
In addition to providing a rigorous and excellent education for students, the Mesa Center for Success provides a temporary short-term placement (Alternative to Suspension) for students who would otherwise be suspended from their home schools. The Consortium member districts use ATS for both special education students and general education students. This reduces the number of out of school suspensions for their special education students and the likelihood of repeat behaviors. ATS provides a safe educational environment with support to help the student reintegrate successfully into their home schools.
At Mesa Center for Success West we provide for the academic and social emotional needs of high-risk children and adolescents, grades K-6. We have a no refusal, no suspension, no expulsion policy, offering a continuum of services to meet the educational needs of this challenging student population. We believe that every child has the right to a high quality education. Like all Menta schools, MCS’s Academy’s guiding principle is “we will never give up.” MCS is deeply committed to developing innovative strategies for ensuring that the children in our programs are not left behind. We maintain high expectations for our students, in terms of both academic and social-emotional growth, countering the prevailing prejudices commonly found in the education of children with disabilities. We believe that every child can and will learn. Our students are preparing to be 3 C Ready- College Ready, Career Ready, and Citizenship Ready. Our goal is to ensure that all students master the academic and social skills necessary for an independent and productive life. We create an Optimal Learning Environment that is well structured, engaging, safe, instructional, and responsive to students needs.
On May 8th, 2015, The Mesa Center for Success was presented with the Dan McCarron Award by the Mesa Public School District. The Dan McCarron Award is presented annually to a school or department that has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to students with exceptional needs and their families providing more than just the required services. The Menta Group was honored to receive this award and is proud of the dedication and hard work of the MCS staff!
