MST offers a range of services with the aim of supporting the physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs of our students. At MST, students benefit from a team of counsellors, access to admissions officers with vast experience, and a steady flow of information and support to families.
A professional team
Our team of counselors’ expertise is drawn from more than 30 years of collective student counseling experience in admissions offices at highly selective schools and other well-regarded independent schools’ counseling offices.
