School Reviews

We have been a part of the Mission Hills Christian School family for the last 9 years, and highly recommend MHCS to anyone looking for a Christian school education their children. All three of my children are thriving academically, spiritually and socially at MHCS. Our oldest daughter will be graduating from 8th grade this year, and we are confident that she has learned the academic, social and leadership skills she needs to transition into high school, and will be able to do so with a strong and confident grounding in her faith.
