School Reviews

My son was at MCHS from age 4 to age 6 and thrived. He was more than ready for first grade at Lamplighter when he graduated. The guides are all wonderful and the building and grounds are beautiful. For all that you and your child get, the tuition and before/after care are a bargain. Highly recommend.
