    We love MCS! The teachers treat your children as their own. The after school clubs they have are outstanding. They include Science Olympiad Drama Academic Club (Scholar's bowl) Newcomb Track and even Choir. The student body is diverse also. Just a great school!

    The teachers at this school have no concern of the children's academic needs; they are only stressing the ARMT's test because they cant pass the exam they need to pass. REASON WHY? 3rd grade teachers are not teaching instead they prefer to give "F" and rely on the parents to do the work for them. I am definitely going to the board with this school.

    This school is a little secret. It is hidden in a samll bedroom community and offers some of the best one on one around. The children take pride in their work and love their teachers. I have twins that attend there now and my oldest daughter went there a few years ago. I would have to say I am gald that my girls are there.
