School Reviews

As a former student, parent and now grandparent, I definitely see the benefits of Mars Hill Bible School. Wonderful qualified teachers, support staff, and administrators. Students are encouraged to be good members of their community serving in many ways. There are many extracurricular activities for students to participate in and learn new skills. The sports teams have won many awards through the years.
