School Reviews

We are an expat family living overseas so our 2 kids are required to go to boarding school since there is no high school available for them to attend in the country we live in. We are originally from the Southwestern US and we wanted to find a small, caring Christian boarding school for our kids to attend. We found Menaul School and from the first moments of our contact with the school we knew we had found the perfect place for our kids. Meanul has both a day school and boarding school with a large and diverse international student population. Our kids love the international environment, the small class sizes, caring teachers and the wonderful community feeling that the school provides. Our children are thriving at Menaul! From the dorms, to the activities, to the coaches, to the teachers and staff to the wonderful Christian community, Menaul has exceeded expectations on every count. Our son is an alternative learner and they have even found him an awesome tutor to provide academic support for him. We love Menaul and encourage any expat family looking for a small Christian school with an international emphasis to consider this wonderful school in Albuquerque, NM.
