Welcome to the Menlo School Association for the Upper School
MSA is the parent organization for the Upper School division of Menlo School. Through its many MSA events and projects, Upper School parents work together to build community among students, parents, faculty and staff and to enhance the learning environment of the school. In addition to providing a forum for the exchange of concerns and issues involving the school community, the MSA holds an annual benefit to support both MSA projects and Menlo School financial needs. MSA-sponsored events include featured speakers at monthly MSA meetings, an annual parent/faculty education conference, annual Mother/Son and Father/Daughter events, and Menlo Parent Group Meetings that help parents with children in the same grade connect and stay informed.
UPPER SCHOOL PARENT PARTICIPATION IN MSA PROGRAMS IS ENCOURAGED.
Please review the volunteer opportunities available here, then contact the MSA Volunteer Coordinator, listed at the top of the page, to indicate your area of interest, or use the online Volunteer Form. Whether you have lots of time or just a few minutes to contribute to an MSA activity, your participation will strengthen the MSA, the Menlo School community, and our children’s educational experience.
The MSA holds monthly meetings for parents where the school administration and faculty, including Norm Colb, John Schafer and Student Life Deans Tony and Cindy Lapolla provide important information on current issues. Outside professionals often speak on topics related to parenting and education. The meeting calendar is posted at right.
Life after high school: Check out Connections Beyond the Classroom (CBC) here. The CBC program invites Menlo students and young alumni to examine their interests and helps them to pursue experiences that can shape their life's direction.
