The approach to education in Muckross is a very personal one. School structures are put in place to enable each individual to develop at her own pace and to encourage each girl to get involved in and contribute to school life.  Students are expected to work hard, are given opportunities to develop a sense of trust and responsibility, are guided towards making mature, personal relationships, are encouraged to get involved in sports and leisure activities and in the creative and performing arts.This rich variety of experience helps to prepare our young women to live with dignity and to make a positive contribution in whatever society they find themselves.
