I have a child in the fifth grade at MCS and they have attended since kindergarten. The school management seems to be more concerned with making money and avoiding liability than educating the kids. My child won't be there next year.
I am a student at MCS and it is a great school. I am in 7th grade and my sister is in 5th grade. The teachers are great and help you when needed. They have a lot of patience. I love MCS
MCS is a very strong, Christian school. My daughter has attended MCS for 8 years. The school has a strong focus on Christ's teachings and academics including AP level courses. They offer a well rounded experience with solid academic programs, wonderful Fine Art programs and many Athletic teams. The Fine Art programs (Drama, Vocal, Band, Art, etc.) have been such a blessing to my daughter. MCS offers many clubs including National Junior Honor Society, Photography, Student Leadership Institute, etc. The teacher to student class size ratio allows for a situation where teachers are involved in the students daily success. Parents are encouraged to participate. If we have any disappointments with MCS it would be that many parents aren't involved and the student body is not as diverse (interests, culture, economic, etc.) as we would like.
My children, now in 6th and 8th grades, have been at MCS since kindergarten. They have had only positive experiences and plan to stay through high school. The class sizes are small and the teachers are exceptionally kind and caring. Although rare, when there is any kind of problem, I am approached on a personal level by the faculty and my involvement is appreciated, as we work as a team to educate my children and resolve any issues. The academics at MCS are strong, my childen are challenged and will be well prepared for college. They also receive a well-rounded education, with art, music, Spanish and PE classes. I have researched many schools in the area, and simply could not find a better place for my children.
My childen have been at MCS for many years, and this is the only school that they wish to attend. We have been very happy with the kind and caring faculty and staff. The academics are excellent. My children are challenged and will be well-prepared for college. We are also very happy with the number of athletic and club membership opportunities offered as MCS grows into a K-12 school. My children plan to stay through high school.
This was a great school for my child. My son attended MCS from 4th grade through 8th grade. He then attended Douglas Anderson. He was fully prepared academically, but more importantly, he was prepared spiritually. He was exposed to a great deal at DA but was able to handle it because of his years at MCS.
Mandarin christian is not all its cracked up to be. My child suffered so much at the hands of the students who were taunting her and saying terrible things to her there that if you are thinking of sending your children there i strongly advise you not to.The middle school principal really does nothing to solve the problem at hand and the kids there hardly have a christian attitude.
Strong academics. Strong extracurricular activities. Love the Christian education. Parents can somewhat be involved. This school is pretty expensive and they nickle and dime you all the time. They are very strict with group punishment instead of individual punishment therefore if your child is good he or she will be group punished a lot. Other than that though we love the smaller environment. Overall a great school.
This is the most awesome school. My daughter has had nothing but positive experiences here. The class size is small, the teachers wonderful and caring.
Mandarin Christian School provides a wonderful opportunity or children to receive a quality education in a nurturing environment. The staff truly cares about each child and their individual acamdemic and social needs.
MCS is a friendly place, where discipline is a priority. Teachers are well prepared, compassionate, and eager to teach. Now expanded into High School, MCS is a quality school with sports, computer lab, fine arts, and extra-curricular activities for all ages. They are celebrating their 11th year, and have a very positive history, including several accreditations that usually take longer to achieve. This is a serious school for serious students, but also a fun place for children to grow up.
Nice Christian school. My daughter loved it in K and 1st Grade. She had excellent teachers for both years. They had music, art and Spanish class on a rotational schedule. Parents were very encouraged (but not strong-armed) to participate, and we always did. I did encounter one teacher that I felt was unqualified to control and truly teach children, but thankfully she did not teach my child! It has been a couple of years since we attended there. When we were there, security was not tight enough on campus - especially for the classes in portables. I was concerned about that. Things have probably changed by now...
Parental Involvement is exceptional. Terrific atmosphere. Excellent academic program combined with students who are actually under control and ready to learn has made MCS a wonderful experience for our family for 4 years now.
We have been very pleased with the level of academics. The staff is very attentive and involved with the children. Their resources cover all areas. Parents are vey involved and the entire morale of the school reflects this.
The Mother's Morning Out program is a huge asset and wonderful program. The only gripe about the school is the cost. The tuition is enough to take out a second mortgage.
MCS has been a wonderful school so far. The teachers really show an interest in every childs success and they take the time to make sure that each child is reaching his/her potential. It truly is the best of all worlds as MCs provides art, foreign languages and sports. They compete with other area private schools and have attained a great reputation in athletics. Parents are very involved at MCS. The prental involvement is out of want and not need as the school likes volunteers but does not need them to run efficiently. The category of teachers has also been quite impressive with most of them having masters in the field that they teach.
I have been at MCS since Kindergarten and I'm graduating this year(2005). I have enjoyed this school thourughly. It has great teachers and has good sports teams. Our GIRLS BASKETBALL won 53 straight games over the past 3 years. The education I have gotten here has enabled anouther student and myself to go to Stanton college prep's international baceloriate program(IB) which is a rigerous liberal arts study program. MCS has been a great experiance for me and I loved it.
My son just began his first year at MCS as a 3rd grader. Though the grade itself is quite a step up as far as academic challenges, the school and teacher are wonderful. We feel confident that we will keep him at this school indefinately and our daughter will join him in a couple of years. We feel very lucky to have been able to get him in. Such an incredible breath of fresh air after having been in the Public system since Kindergarten.
