About MEHP

MEHP is a kindergarten through 6th grade full time, tuition free public school for families seeking alternatives to traditional classroom based education.  MEHP offers individualized learning at a flexible pace and schedule to accommodate a variety of learning styles in the location that your child would normally attend school. Students receive an individualized program, which recognizes their special needs, exceptional skills and creative talents.  Parents receive guidance and resources by a credentialed teacher to assist them with academic planning. 

The Parent’s Role

The parent or responsible adult serves as the primary learning coach for their child to help facilitate progress through the daily lessons, manage their child’s daily schedule, and ensure work is completed at a reasonable pace in accordance with the master agreement.

The Teacher’s Role

An experienced California credentialed K-6 teacher is assigned to support each child’s educational needs for maximum success.  The teacher communicates with parents and students on a regular basis through e-mail, telephone, online and face-to-face meetings. Teachers remain constantly involved: they provide academic support for both guardian and child, monitor progress, and develop specific intervention plans as needed or requested.
