Community Service

At MEF IS, learning is authentic, creative, and collaborative. MEF IS has an established record of service learning projects. Students learn ways to contribute positively to the lives of others in order to shape the world. Dedicated community service is expected of every high school student. The successful completion of these community service hours ensures that, during their time as members of the secondary school, every student participates in service activities.

We are an IB candidate school expecting to receive authorization as an IB World School in the spring of 2022. In the IB Diploma Programme, CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) is a requirement of the IB Diploma, so a CAS program is in the process of being established in the high school. Students balance their CAS experiences between three categories: creativity, activity and service by participating in activities in each of these three areas. Students participate in creative endeavors (‘C’), physical activities (‘A’), and service activities (‘S’). According to the IB, the purpose of the CAS programme is to develop strengths and weaknesses, build skills, learn how to plan, show determination, collaborate effectively, engage in global issues, and to consider ethics while making choices.
