School Reviews

We sent all three of our children to MLHS and are very glad we did. They received an excellent education--challenging and engaging--in a setting which was very encouraging and supportive: Christian. The extras are great and include: choir, band, athletics, special clubs, like robotics, photography, dance. We have come to view the High School as a part of our family, since we have come to know and love so many others who love and respect this community in Christ.
