I have 33 years of teaching experience in a wide variety and styles of schools but never have I ever seen the level of expertise I have at Mustard Seed School. Teachers are dedicated to their craft and to their students and to the students' families. Teachers and staff love God and love people...all people. The two things God commanded us to do. At the heart of the entire Mustard, Seed community is the desire to serve God and serve others through collections for the home and food challenged to protect the earth and environment. Mustard Seed is a very special place where children and their families are welcomed, known, and challenged.
