    I love this school MCI teaches the student that its almost time for college and they get you ready for it and they help you with every step of the way if you want it. I'm currently a sophomore and haven't found a dislike in this school yet.

    This is my 2nd year attending MCI and I have to say despite all the things you hear from other people overall this school is completely amazing. The teachers the headmaster and the student body all work together to make this school a better place to be. This school may be in a small place but it is a school like no other and despite the fact that there are a lot of schools that are trying to become 'like us' there will never be a school like MCI. MCI is a very unique school and I am so thankful that I have had the opporunity to attend this school and meet people from literally ALL OVER the world. Some students may not like MCI and complain because of the high expectations and the dress code. But those are the main things that make our school stand out.

    I really like this school because everyone seems very nice. They teach a lot of things that some of the other school don't.

    People in the school may currently not like the school or may not think its 'cool' or 'fun' but this school is going to greatly help them in the future and in later years current attending students will realize the impact it is going to have on their life.
