One of the worst school experiences I've ever had. Incompetent principal, messy guidance, and backwards rules. Children are not allowed to have their own opinions. If it's not a Catholic opinion, they get sent to the office to have a "talk" with the principal and write an apology letter to their teachers. (Example: abortion.) Bullying/favoritism is a huge issue at this school. Not just by students, but also by teachers. Do not send your child here if you care the slighest about them.
We have been an MHOC family for 13 years as all three of our children attended preschool thru 8th grade with our youngest finishing 8th grade this year. The experience has been very rewarding as the teachers and administrators have enhanced the values we look to instill in our children in their daily lives. Because of MHOC, our children have a relationship with God that they simply would not have otherwise. Academically, MHOC well prepared our children for high school. The overall environment if family oriented and we are always very proud to call ourselves an MHOC Family!
One of the best, more caring, schools. They go beyond academics (which are really high in case you are wondering!) to really get to know each and every child and work with them to be the very best they can. My son graduated MHOC and went on to catholic high school...where he has a GPA of 4.4 and takes all honors classes. When he came to MHOC from the local public schools, he was 2 grades behind! The teachers worked with him to get him where he needed to be and beyond and, for that, we will be forever grateful. Great school, great staff and amazing opportunities for all, even after they leave. What a foundation for our kids.
The teachers at MHOC go above and beyond at MHOC to make sure that no student is left behind. They have posted hours starting at the beginning of the year for any students that may need extra help throughout the year and I have witnesses students utilizing this time. Teachers also come in before school to help students prepare for state competitions as that is the only time available, that is commitment and effectiveness.
The homework is the right amount especially with the chrome books for middle school. The homework is in direct correlation to the lesson that day in class or in preparation for a test or quiz it may be more.
MHOC instills honesty, integrity and fairness for all the students. The teachers and staff also are aware that these students are also kids and mistakes are going to made but there are consequences to all actions. We are all expected to communicate with kindness and respect and that is strongly followed with Dr. Brown from the students to teachers and parents.
Mary Help of Christians Catholic School offers the best well rounded education a parent can offer their child. This school provides a safe environment for the students to reach their full potential. I have two children at the school and we have been there for many years. I have seen my little kids mature to sensitive teenagers about the world around them. Not just themselves. As far as education it is top notch. My son is graduating this year from MHOC and is entering High School in the honors program. He got the highest scores on his high school placement test. He has been involved in many math and science competitions as has my daughter. This school has much to offer. The teachers and all the staff truly care about our children as a whole individual. We are truly blessed to have had MHOC as our home the past several years. You will be just as happy if you choose this home for your kids. Peace be with you.
Our three children have attended MHOC since Pre-K 2. We could not be happier with the education and faith-based curriculum they have received over the past 12 years. The caring and approachable teachers and staff have reached out to our family whether it be to congratulate a success, discuss a challenging class, or encourage an extracurricular activity.
We moved our children out of the local Public Middle School - Mid 6th Grade. What a Blessing MHOC has been to our family. Not only did the Principal & faculty welcome us, they have provided our children with a great education.
I was very impressed that the Principal is present at all school functions, before, after and during school. This is something I have not experienced in any of the local Public Schools, Elementary or Middle. The Faculty & Staff are friendly and share the same educational & safety goals for our children.
We are proud to be part of th MHOC family.
