We are so impressed by and pleased with the education that our child is receiving in the middle school, and feel that this was an excellent move for him in sixth grade. The academic expectations are high, but the faculty are so dedicated, supportive and engaging, that our son feels able to rise well to the challenges that they set. We look forward to our second son starting sixth grade in the fall. I would strongly recommend this school to any parent whose child is looking for an academically rigorous yet extremely nurturing school.

I simply cannot say how lucky we are to have found this school, not only for our son, but for our family. It is so much more than just a school but a holistic community network of amazing parents, children and staff. This is our second year at MCS and absolutely cannot be more happy with the quality of the academics and the amazing people from the PTO to the Admin. We have met the most incredible and supportive people here and they are now part of our family as we as parents go through this journey of parenting. We also love all of the Afterschool Enrichment Programs offered too like yoga, art classes, martial arts, piano and cooking classes. The school is very much involved in supporting the greater community with clothing and food drives and supporting local non-profits. For our family, this school is a perfect match as we rely and depend on each other to support and raise each others kiddos. It takes a village and this is a tremendous one!

The extracurricular activities are amazing the musical program teaches us about the different types of notes and melodies that we would need to learn about for music. The art program is amazing it teaches the different techniques to be able to do art.
