Transitional Living facilities are supervised by at least two residential education professionals who live in each building. They are responsible for teaching MHS seniors essential life skills. They also serve as role models and mentors, helping students prepare for life as an adult.

Transitional Living exists to teach students the life skills necessary to survive and thrive as self-sufficient adults. We promote healthy lifestyles and work to build a strong sense of community. This support aids students as they bridge the final gap between childhood and adulthood.

In ninth through 11th grade, MHS students learn basic life skills from their houseparents. When they become seniors, TL staff members help them build a deeper foundation. TL staff incorporate weekly curriculum material into the student schedules.
