    My children have been coming here since they started in their Nursery Room. Fast forward to a few years later and both children feel very loved and supported here. They are also learning at an advanced rate. This school is the closest thing to homeschooling that you can find within a school community. The children and staff are all thoughtful and kind and there is an innocence here that you just can't find anywhere else.

    I am a proud parent of an MSCCS children. I have had 5 children in this school for the last 10 years. I am truly greatful that God blessed me with such wonderful staff to help raise my children. It takes a village to raise a child and I am so glad that MSCCS was a part of my village. They are the most loving and caring people i have ever met in my life. I pray that God continues to pour blessing upon this wonderful school. If you want to make sure your child is safe clean and loved. I strongly recommend this school. Because of this school my 5 children have learned from this show love to everyone. My children are a product of this loving school. Ms. Rosado I love you and you will always be my angel. My children were there from 4 months til 5 years and I thank you. I will always cherish each and everyone of you for the rest of my life and will always carry you in my heart.

    I am a proud parent of an MSCCS graduate. I could only wish that the school had more grades because our experience there was a great one. I enrolled my child in the pre-school program and decided to keep him there because of how content we were with everything. I really liked the curriculum and the small class sizes. Most of all the fact that the staff was very loving made me feel safe. From day one this was the most important feeling of all because as I drove away each day I knew that my son was in good hands.

    If you are looking for a private school in the Miami Shores area... look no further! MSCCS is a wonderful school with an excellent teaching staff. My child has been attending this school for four years and there is no place we would rather be. I love the fact that the school is 'traditional' and that not only are academics important but empathy respect and manners are taught as well. The staff teachers and parents are all wonderful! I would highly recommend this school.

    This is a hidden treasure in Miami Shores. My husband and I stumbled across it after a horrible experience with another local and renowned private school. It is a small loving school with staff who truly care about each and every child. Under the leadership of the current director the school has blossomed beyond a parent's expectation. When my son graduated last year we unfortunately had to leave the school (something that we are still sad about). I miss the wonderful education the loving staff the amazing performances the multi-cultural ambiance etc. I have not seen any school in Dade County (private or public) that is comparable to the exerience children recieve and MSCCS. Definitely and without a doubt the best place for a child to receive an education!

    This school is a gem and the cost quite reasonable. My children both went here since a very young age. And though I moved them to one of the area's best magnet elementary programs it was not because I was in any way dissatisfied with MSCCS. The academics at MSCCS are very strong. (My kids skills are well above grade.) The teachers are dedicated competent and loving. My children learned not only to be good students here but good citizens. They learned manners respect and caring for their fellow classmates. The 'special' offerings are wonderful and include art music PE computer Spanish and more. And there are also after school for-fee extra classes that have included dance gymnastics TKD piano and additional Spanish. What a wonderful and well-rounded education! Adjusting to a larger school has only made me appreciate what a gem MSCCS truly is.

    I used to be a former student and their education is simply amazing. I felt as if I had gotten a LOT of individual attention which made my performance very good. I had also been in a class with the current director and she was very nice. I love MSSCS and all the wonderful things there!

    Our family has been a part of of MSCCS for seven years and still going. Our oldest started in Kindergarten and went all the way to fifth grade our other two have started in Prek-4 and are both doing exceptionally well. The staff is wondeful and always open to talk to. The school has been improving (remodeling/upgrading) over the last few years and no plans on stopping. With such small student to teacher ratios no child is ever left behind forgotten ignored as they would be in a classroom of 30+ students.

    I have a child in the Pre-K3 class and one in the Pre-K2 class. Both children have attended since they were 3 months old. I absolutely love the school and the staff. Every year has gotten better with the new director. The enrichment classes are amazing. I have great relief in knowing that my children are being loved while they are learning.

    We love this school. My 3 year old has been here a year and my 1 year old started when she was just an infant. The teachers are caring the administration is responsive and the parents are incredibly involved. I love that they get a curriculum and play time appropriate for their ages. The best review of all is how excited they are to go each day.

    I notice a lot of the reviews for Miami Shores Community Church School (MSCCS) are from 2 or more years ago and thus grossly out-of-date for this school. MSCCS is simply a terrific place for the kindergarten and younger crowd (I simply cannot speak to the 'upper level' classes -- 1st thru 5th). MSCCS has improved dramatically over the past few years since the new director took over. [She had previously taught at the school for many years] She is very practical and responsive - though she can be tough when needed. The curriculum is traditional -- which is what I like. The 'extracurricular' offerings at the school are impressive too. P.E. Spanish Art Computer Lab and Music are part of the regular curriculum. At additional cost piano 'extra' art 'extra' Spanish gymnastics ballet etc. are also available. The spirit of the school is caring with a focus on respectful

    Admittedly last year brought change. Some chose to leave but in my view (and having kids there for over 5 years -- each since 6 or so months old) MSCCS is a high quality experience moreso now than ever. It is a safe loving educational environment that provides families (those open to it that is) with the opportunity to build community (faith and family based) which is not easy in this highly transitory city. We've had a terrific overall experience and have met some neat families along the way. The staff is affectionate and consistent (low turnover); the dedication to the kids admirable; and the willingness of the new director to consider/act on constructive feedback outstanding. The curriculum is traditional but teachers have increased latitude to be creative within it. There are some great teachers/caregivers. My kids have really grown and thrived there.

    My children loved this school. The teachers are loving. You really felt welcome by everyone from the Principal to the teachers assistant. It is my fondest memory of Miami.

    This school has hit rock bottom. The teacher turnover rate is high due to lack of administration from the office. If you love your kids don't send them here. You'll get overcharged and your children most likely will not have the Nursery/PreK experience they deserve.

    This is my third year with MSCCS and it's been a superb program for my children (prek3 - kindergarten). Their teachers have been caring appropriately challenging and inspirational. The school has been 'spiffed up' this past summer. The new leadership and office functions well and it appears that the teachers are taking well to the new leadership. Parental involvement is high -- as high as any other school -- in that veteran parents and new parents are volunteering to help and have a say. The extra-curricular activities have been more than adequate for my kids.

    Last year our two daughters ( 2 and 3 years old now)went to this school. We were a little bit worried because we both speak another langage than langages use in the school and in Miami and our daughters were very shy with others children and adults. But the problem disappeared in two weeks. Now we don't know many others schools in miami but we think that teachers do a good jobs with childrens. For us it 's not only a daycare it's a school first. We think too that the fact that it's a small school is very helpfull for children and parents to feel secured. We totally now feel confident with people who work there. We don't want that our chldren learn all extracurriculars activities music and spanish are sufficients we understand that it's not possible at their ages ( they already have too many things to learn with us).

    The staff and teachers are very caring and attentive to the children. Very good school. I would recommend this school.

    I had my children attend Miami Shores Commuity Church school's daycare. I found the daycare staff for my infant trained and caring. Although the staff for my older child wasn't caring and involved. I would not recommend this school for older children. I was also disaapointed in the lack of parental involvement.

    This is an excellent school that provides a loving and nurturing environment. My child had been attending this school for the past year and has done exceptionally well. She is advanced in all areas of study and continues to make remarkable gains. I would highly recommend this school! The current curriculum provides challenges for the students while aslo teaching good Christian moral values. Best school around for the money!!!

    My child has attended this school for the past three years and I have found that the overall quality of child care has drastically diminished. The attentiveness and sincerity of the teachers has changed considerably for the worse. And I can no longer subject my child to such an environment.
