MCH was 100% the school that I had been searching for. It's a close community where classmates feel like family and the teachers care and ALWAYS go the extra mile. The school is considerate of the child's need and abilities; lessons are given in a way that the child will best understand them. The outdoor space is AMAZING and kids get more than 15 minutes at recess :) The Head of School is approachable, well-informed and very professional. I only wish MCH went into middle school or high school -- we will HATE TO LEAVE!!!
