The MSMS Class of 2017 has been selected, and letters letting students know their status are in the hands of the post office and traveling all over the state.

“This is without question the most competitive group of students I’ve seen during my time here,” said MSMS Director for Admissions and School Advancement Mr. Rick Smith.

Due to another year of uncertain funding from the legislature, MSMS was only able to send invitations to 105 students along with several invitations that carry “alternate” status.

Students who receive alternate status will gain a spot at MSMS should one of the primary selectees decline his or her invitation. Spots may also open up in the event that the school can secure additional funding.

Of the nearly 200 students who completed applications to the school, 164 made it to the interview stage of the application.

MSMS will not release the names of the students who have been selected to the school until the students themselves have been informed via official correspondence.

The next step for all selectees and alternates is to attend New Student Orientation Day, which is scheduled for April 25, 2015.

Applicants and parents should NOT call the Admissions Office to check the status of applications. However, if students or parents have not heard from the Admissions Office within a week from today, students and parents are encouraged contact the office to ensure they have accurate mailing information.
