Mother of Christ is a place where children can grow as a whole. The nourish every aspect of a child. The children in this school grow academically, spiritually and emotionally. The principal and vice- principal are hands on and they are very involved in every aspect of the school.

We have been "Blessed" to have found MOC eight years ago! As our son graduates this year and our daughter continues through middle school, we are grateful for the friends we have made throughout the years. They love it here, they never want to leave, they are "HAPPY"! That says it all! They have grown into Respectful, Loving and Caring individuals. To all our teachers, administration, staff, volunteers and Father Angulo for a great school community and a parish we call home! GOD BLESS MOTHER OF CHRIST CATHOLIC SCHOOL & CHURCH!

Mother of Christ is a Fantastic school, my son attended from Kinder to 8th grade, The principal has an open door policy and you can come to her whenever you need to. From the principal to the vice-principal to the office staff & teachers they where all great. I do not have any complain with the school at all. My son flourished and grew by leaps and bounds, he felt safe, he felt loved, and he was always challenged academically, so much so, that it has been said that children who go from a Catholic school to a public magnet school, are not up to it academically, well my son is in his Freshman year and his first grading period, he got 4 A's and 2B's, of course it's like anything in life you have to work hard to keep up those grades. Father Angulo is one of my favorite priest and a great person, my son enjoyed his Religion class, and he learned a lot. As for the gossip, well you know how that goes, it has nothing to do with the school and everything to do with the parents. So Father Angulo, Ms. Rodriguez, Ms, De la Torre, & Ms Norta....and all the teachers that passed thru my sons life. Thank you so very, very much for everything!!!!!!God bless!

I have 5 children, so those that know me and read this post, will know who this is. Between my 5, they have gone to all types of school from public, to non-denominational Christian to some very expensive Catholic schools. Can I say that I found the perfect school, no. I think each person has to choose a school that is right for their child and their family. There is place for improvement, as there is anywhere, the difference that I have found at M.O.C.C.S. is that my children like it there. They feel safe, they feel loved. They want to go to school. They enjoy learning, they are not rushed into learning just because they have to take the FCAT. Everything is in a smaller scale, so it's a lot more personalized. I see where they have built relationships that are going to last them for years to come while receiving a good education. I find that you can show up and speak to the administration without making an appointment, and when you call someone actually answers the phone instead of a phone system full of numbers that lead you to the point of leaving a message. I do not hesitate in recommending M.O.C.C.S. to my friends.

We love MOC. Academically it is very strong in the lower grades, K-5th. A parent can not ask for a more loving environment for their children to learn and grow. The Teachers, Administration, and Office Staff truly care for the children. The spirituality that the children are gaining from this family environment is what my children most benefit from. It is a small school and the families have the opportunity to build real friendships.

My daughter has been at MOC for many years, and I can see how academically she is above her cousins. Six months ago, I started with a divorce, and I approached the teacher to make sure to keep an eye on my daughter because I did not want her grades affected. Her teacher keeps me posted and even has the school counselor talking to her on a regular basis. Her coach has kept her focused on sports and feeling good about herself. The administration has helped me with a payment plan, and has given me information on how I can apply for future scholarships. All around, I am happily surprised on how they have shown how much they care for our family and I am extremely satisfied. God willing, I will be able to keep her there until she graduates from 8th grade.

How could a parent rate this school 5 stars? They must be oblivious to what is really going on. The adminstration is so bad that they cant even keep their teachers. They only care about $$$ not our children. Think twice before returning or regestering you child here.

Mother of Christ gives a well rounded education that incorporates, academics, sports and religion. Father Julio is a wonderful addition to the school and my 8th grader is growing spiritually. She is preparing for her confirmation and is looks foward to attending mass every Sunday. I am so greatful to our Lord Jesus Christ that she has the opportunity to be in a school where good morals, high academics and friendships are nurtured.

Amazing how exparents can be so critical. Everyone is entitled to thier own opinion... I on the other hand am extremely grateful. As a parent we are always looking out for the best intrest of our children and this school not only looks out for your kids academically, emotionally and spiritually it also puts effort in keeping the family unitied. This school isn't only "A private school" it is a loving and humble community . I feel honored and proud to say my Children go to Mother Of Christ Catholic School and we BELONG to this marvelouse Parish.

THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO US!! My children and I have been blessed to have found Mother of Christ 9 years ago. During our time at this school my children have had amazing teachers who have gone well above and beyond to educate and nurture them emotionally and spiritually. The administration has always had an open door policy and has always addressed issues that has been brought to it's attention. The Principal until just this year was also a "parent" of the school and has always been extremely involved in the workings of her school ensuring that all of her teachers are giving her students 100% and nothing less. Mother of Christ is an great school with an exceptional group of teachers and an excellent administration.

This is the second year that my daughter attends this school and I have nothing but praise for Mother of Christ. Since she was in Prek-2, she was already being taught to know her numbers from 1-10 by distinguishing them (and she was only 2 at the time). The teachers take really good care of her and always provide me feedback on her progress and whether she eats or not. It is a family oriented school with a very knowledgeable staff who take great concern on my daughter's well-being and educational potential overall. I highly recommend this school.

I had to move my child to another school mid-year! It was a terrible experience...the teacher was not fit to work with young Pre-K children. We were extremely disappointed at how this 'Catholic' school handled our situation.

My daughter has grown and changed so much over the last year she has attended MOC. Her teachers have been so loving and devoted to all the students. The teachers NEVER hesitate to discuss praises and concerns with the parents. They are so open with everything that goes on in the classroom.I could not be happier or more proud that my child attends school here.

MOC is a wonderful environment for your children. I have been part of Mother of Christ for 6 years. My child has learned so much and is very close to all his classmates and has loved all his teachers. If ever there is an issue, I speak with the teacher or administration, whom are always accessible and easy to reach. Add to that, the excellent religious foundation they are getting.

Many people research b4 deciding on a school. Please really think before putting your child in this school. The administration is terrible! I have to agree that the gossiping is horrible. Sometimes there are circumstances in which you see yourself faced with having to share personal issues with admin./staff (beware) bc everyone will know your business. The education ...High Advanced curriculum & fast paced, they are more concerned with keeping a reputation that they are 'a year ahead' than making sure that they learn. Meaning that if you have a very bright child, you may be ok with this, but if you have a child that is not a super star brain, then the child may struggle. Then you may see yourself with tutoring (more $) and being 'the teacher' at home because on top of that the ony teacher there that is worth anything is the kinder teacher

It is unfortunate that this school has fallen as far as it has. It really used to be such a great school, but the administration is more concerned about sweeping things under the rug, than what is going on in the classrooms. They are extremely unprofessional and disorganized. Can't recommend this school to ANYONE

I had two children attend this school for several years and I must say it was a horrible experience. The administration is a disaster unless you are in the in crowd. Almost all children are in need of tutoring afterschool which you have to pay for additionally because they are not learning in their classrooms. Aside from this there is massive favoritism within the student and the teachers. The afterschool program is also a disaster. Projects and homework is sent home basically so the parent can complete it because no children understand it for some reason. I would definitely not recommend this school unless you want to go to school with your child all over again, completing homework and exorbitant projects. Not to mention all the gossip that goes on everyone knows everything that happens in everybodys personal life and your childrens simply disgusting...

I have two daughters that have been attending this school for the past two years. I feel very blessed that I found a place that has made my children grow spiritually as well as academically. Prior to attending this school my daughters attended a school that was nearly twice the cost of this one; yet I found my self having to teach the material at home because it was only presented to them at school. At MOC my daughters feel confident and secure enough to participate in different school activities such as choir, morning announcements, safety patrol, and cheerleading.

My daughter went to this school when it was still inside the church. it was great until they started to grow, the caos came along, very expensive. My son was not accepted in Pre kinder because my daughter was not in the elementary. The teacher he had has been the worst experience I ever had in my life. All they care is about money, money and more money

Academically and spiritually the school is very good. I have only good things to say about my child's teachers. However, I feel that the school lacks organization. Concerns are not addressed promptly. For example, the drive-thru for arrival and dismissal is in complete chaos. The computer lab isn't being utilized by all the students, so why should all the students have to pay a technology fee? Where is all the money going, seeing as the tution and registration is raised yearly.

This school is completely disorganized when it comes to thier office staff. Simple questions cannot be answered or are answered incorrect. School needs improvement! as for the learning center it also needs improvement for children enrolled in thier vpk ( voluntary pre- k) program are still paying an average monthly rate of $300.00 So i question how much is the month really coming out to with you paying $300.00 And with what the vpk program is also paying the school !
