Mystic River Magnet School  

Theme: Active Exploration - Play and Ingenuity

The power of play motivates students to connect with, actively explore, and joyfully engage with their surrounding world.

- Steve Wheeler, Principal of Mystic River Magnet School

Our Play and Ingenuity Magnet School will find new ways to engage our students meaningfully in interest based learning with a focus on Active Exploration. Students will benefit from making social emotional connections in creative, hands on learning environments while working collaboratively and thinking critically with their peers. 

  • Grades K-2 - Active Exploration features developmentally appropriate play based learning that provides active exploration of topics. While building and strengthening brain pathways, children will create meaning through play and problem solving across disciplines.
  • Grades 3-5 - Active Exploration features games that promote mental and physical play and learning with a problem-solving framework to understand information across content areas. Collaboration between students and teachers will support solving complex problems across disciplines.

    • The Life is Good Super Power Curriculum is researched based with a focus on social/emotional skills through play and cooperation. Staff will take part in training that will help to develop these skills and look to infuse play based learning, as well as strengthening character, feelings, and emotions for our students.

Optimism is powerful. When human beings grow their capacity to see and focus on the goodness in themselves, others, and the world, their social, emotional, and cognitive superpowers emerge.
