The day marked the realization of Gus and Marty Trowbridge’s dream of creating a school where equality, social justice, a diverse community and the inspiration of Martin Luther King, Jr. would form the basis of children’s education. Over the past five decades, MCS has grown from an experiment on East 96th Street to a formidable leader in education.
