Our Teachers

MSON teachers are grounded in independent school education and share a commitment to excellence, small class sizes, and personal relationships. They are experts in their fields; many have taught at the college level. They are invited to develop MSON courses through a selective process. MSON teachers prepare their courses throughout the spring and summer with support from the MSON Dean of Instruction and attend a multi-day training at Stanford University.
