MS104 is dedicated to providing all students with strong academic preparation. Our goal is to teach young people to think clearly, express themselves lucidly, value creative expression, understand mathematical and logical thoughts, the methods of science and technology, and to appreciate their own and other cultures. Beyond that, MS104 aspires to impart a sense that learning can engage the mind and spirit, a desire to take responsibility, and a commitment to serve others. Ultimately, MS104 students will be prepared with intellectual strength, technical skills, aesthetic appreciation, and positive self-esteem that will enable them to successfully meet the challenges of tomorrow and make positive contributions to the society in which they live.
