Greetings!  It’s been a busy first few months here at MTA, and I have much to share. We are proud to announce that “U.S. News andWorld Report” ranked MTA among the top high schools in the state at #13!  It is truly an indicator of the hard work by students and staff on the SAT and AP tests, but also the support from all of you!  The methodology behind the report is to reflect how the school is reaching ALL students in the building.  These rankings change from year to year, so our hope is to continue our path to success for all.

Homecoming weekend was a great success with some wonderful events. Friday night, the boys soccer teams were victorious against Spruce Mountain.  The games were followed by an outdoor dance, bonfire, and boosters tailgating party.  On Saturday, the girls soccer teams played against  Carrabec and the festivities concluded with exciting middle school final games under the lights.

As always it’s busy around these parts! Make sure you continue to check in via the web http://www.mtaroadrunners.org and
