School Reviews

5.0 Stars   06/03/16
Our son transferred from Cobb county public school prior to 10th grade: to be challenged academically, to be less anonymous (more godly adults around him), to mature socially. He graduated May of '16 with and accepted a Presidential Scholarship to Auburn University. He had his share of missteps, but grace abounds at MPCS. Teachers and administrators lead, encourage and fight for kids to find and use their gifts to the glory of God because they have been called to this place. Passion cannot be faked, this place is the real deal.
