School Reviews

Our daughter and son both love MCS! They have attended since kindergarten and are now in middle school. A great start to their education with caring teachers and a campus that strives to emulate Christ in daily living. Blue Ribbon status speaks of the academic achievements of the student body.

This school is amazing. If you are thinking of a private school look no further. This school reflects the love of JESUS.
