Why your gift matters
Most importantly, as an International Baccalaureate school, our goal is to develop lifelong learners who are compassionate and knowledgeable inquirers. As a means to accomplish this goal, we must provide our students with a variety of learning opportunities with which to explore and discover. In addition, with the state withholding close to 40% of public school education funding to balance the state’s budget, schools must find a way to continue to meet all of their monthly financial commitments with only 60% of the funding. The MIPTO raises money each year to help enhance the quality education here at Matoska International.
