Moab Charter School has earned the nickname
of the Phoenix School up at the Utah State Office of Education.
MCS has risen from the ashes of its first year with a shiny
new coat of plumage and a strong set of feet as a foundation.
Moab Charter School is a public, tuition-free school dedicated
to supporting and challenging each child to develop critical
thinking, self-direction and their full academic and creative
potential. Come see our new colors and exciting classrooms
at 358 East 300 South in Moab. We always welcome visitors!
Individualized attention is the hallmark of the Moab Charter
School. There are no more than 15 students per teacher.
Classrooms and lessons are differentiated so that each
student is able to pace themselves and progress through
a curriculum tailored to their unique needs in all subjects.
Both accelerated and remedial opportunities are available
for all students as they develop their gifts and meet their
challenges. Multi-grade classrooms allow students to interact
with peers at various levels of maturity.
The essential academic skills of reading, writing and mathematics
as outlined in the Utah Core Curriculum are taught by research-based
instruction methods. Science, multicultural perspectives
and the arts are integrated with the academic foundation
through project-based learning. Students are introduced
to new material through visual, auditory and kinesthetic
activities, which stimulate learning on many levels, increase
retention and allow each student to learn in their own
