Maranatha is a fabulous school! Everyone is very friendly and willing to help. My child has received an excellent education and I am very sad to leave. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants a good solid Christian education and who wants their child in a loving environment.

As an education student, I have observed many schools and daycares. The school has caring teachers and staff members who love Christ and the children and families they serve. They also understand the unique needs of military families and try to help them in any way possible. The children are taught respect from the first day of preschool on up. I was very impressed.
