As a parent, after reading through some of these comments, I am disappointed that people would speak so negatively about Mount Pisgah. The school is wonderful. I can only speak for my child's experience at the Lower School, but they do a fantastic job educating kids. It is the most nurturing and loving environment, and we feel lucky to send our daughter to school there. We just had a parent night last night, and the new principal (a wonderful lady!) explained all the changes they have made to enrich the academics and focus more on Bible teaching. I am so impressed and excited! I read a comment about bullying, and all I can say is that I think there are some other parents who expect a Christian school to be "Heaven" without any mean children. Children experience unkindness each day, and parents call it "bullying". As a parent myself, I teach my child how to respond to situations like that, and I think parents need to step up and do the same. Whenever my daughter has had a social issue at Mount Pisgah, the faculty has always been so supportive to us and helped solve the problem. I would recommend Pisgah to anyone who wants to feel part of a family!

Our daughter has loved her experience at Mount Pisgah. She was welcomed with open arms when she arrived. The other students and teachers seemed to go out of their way to help her get started, make new friends and become involved in the activities that interested her. Moving to a new school is never easy, but they really seemed to care about her getting off to a great start. When your kid looks forward to going to school everyday, that's really saying something! I have been impressed by the chapel services, the opportunities for our daughter to learn more about her faith and ask questions in a safe environment. The teachers have made an effort to make classes interesting and to stay after to help students who need extra help. I have been very impressed and glad we made this choice.

Not worth it. Mount Pisgah will leave you with many regrets. The administration that was put in place for the lower school and the upper school don't seem to have any positive Christian relationships with the students or there parents. The school favors big donors. There are prejudice leaders in the school who have cause there employees to feel unsupported by making rude comment etc. towards them. The upper school administration treats their students like they have done something wrong by threatening their students prior to any wrongdoing. The upper school administration seems to like to "play God" for their students. Although I believe that Mount Pisgah's administration has very crooked views on how to lead as examples of a Christian, there are many excellent teachers who do truly care about there students and are very qualified intelligent people. I believe if Mount Pisgah removes most of the current administration and leaders and searches for true Christian examples that every one at the school can look up to for guidance and support the school would be worth attending and spending money on. But for now one can find a better education and morals at any other public school.

I am sorry to have to write this but any else would be a lie. Unfortunately , your money is all that they care about here. The new leadership has ignored reports of serious staff problems and has hired an "enforcer" to harass and intimidate the children who don't tow the new , harsh line. Used to be a wonderful family friendly place. Now most of the kids want to go to public school to escape the poor treatment and unreasonable demands of the tone-deaf, unresponsive and uncaring bureaucracy. The Fulton county magnets would be a much better choice if you are in that area. Don't waste your money on mediocrity.

Is there any form of the "Golden Rule" and equal, fair treatment accross the board, towards their students, teachers, and staff that they operate by?

We have been at the school for 10 years. Leadership drives an emphasis on creating an elite image for the school which can interfere with what is best for students. The school places a heavy emphasis on fund raising, giving a lot of control to the wealthiest donor families. Some of the teachers are excellent and some are not. It's a very sheltered, parent-driven environment. Moderate in academic challenge. Great development opportunity and play-time for average athletes who may not get to play at larger public schools.

Our son absolutely LOVES Mt Pisgah. We came from another Christian School in the area and have something to compare with. I can say without a doubt, the last 2 years at Pisgah have been so much more fun, more educational, more rounded, and done more for my son's social and academic growth than the previous 4. The teachers are caring, but stern. Fun, but structured. The leadership is committed to providing the best learning environment in the state, and I can't imagine being anywhere else. That's not to say it's perfect in every single possible way. But they deal with issues proactively and really PARTNER with the parents to get the most out of your child. It's truly a blessing to be a part of the Pisgah Family, and it really is a family. What more can you ask for? The entire staff is open and honest and transparent. The Watch Dog Dad program is fantastic. It's great synergy between parents and staff. Kids learn respect thru the teachings of Jesus Christ, and displayed through example by the teachers. I can't recommend Mt Pisgah enough Truly a blessing in a world that needs more blessings.

Our two daughters attended Mount Pisgah and it has been disappointing to see the school turn a blind eye to bullying. We complained many times and had to have one of our daughters moved to another class because of the constant agressive behavior from the other student. The student was never suspended and after six months, the student was moved to the same class as our daughter. The hitting, spitting and bullying continues. When we brought it to the attention of the staff and principal, we were told that the school cant accomodate us. Our daughter is shy and well behaved and we are shocked! Why they would let the integrity of the school not be upheld and discipline the child?? We are soooooo dissapointed... Academically the school is great. My older daughter also has issues with bullying. Students in her class make fun when she asks questions and humilates her. They steal her shoes on the playground... Where are the teachers in these incidents??

Our daughter has attended Mount Pisgah for the past seven years and it has been very rewarding for her. When she arrived as a new student, she was immediately accepted and embraced by the other students and faculty. Her teachers always make time for her and she has created great memories through international trips, spiritual retreats, mission trips, and involvement in athletics and arts. Pisgah was deifnitely the right choice for our family.

My child graduated from Mount Pisgah and has enjoyed great success in both undergrad and grad school at UGA. While Mount Pisgah may not be the best choice for all, no other school could have served my child better.

My daughter has attended Mount Pisgah Christian School for 7 years and we absolutely love it. There are so many reasons to go to school here, but a critical standout is the low student-to-teacher ratio and small class sizes. I cannot imagine her attending school where there are 5-7 classes per grade with 20-25 children in each class. I'm also thrilled with our lower school curriculum that includes for every child- at no extra charge - Spanish class, a science lab, music class, computer class and art class every single week. (Especially when so many schools are cutting out these important programs.)

We transferred here from a great school in Alpharetta and found the transition very easy in the middle school. The teachers have been excellent and very accessible when your child needs help. The middle school principal Paul Foltz has been terrific whenever I have had questions. We will be continuing on to the high school. We have had a wonderful experience so far!

My two children are in the Early School Full Day Program. The school and the teachers have been such a blessing to our family. Both of my children are receiving an enriched curriculum (Bible, Spanish, Ballet, Karate and movement) and adore their caring teachers. I really struggled with the fact that I had to go back to work full time before my children started elementary school, but the time and attention that they receive at Mount Pisgh has eased my anxiety. We are fortunate to be there.

My nephew currently attends Mt Pisgah and has also been a target of bullies. This school seems to have a real problem with bullying. They are addressing it in the lower grades but no in the middle school. I am very disapointed in how they are not addressing bullying. It is a huge problem in their middle school.

We have been thrilled by our daughter's experience at Mount Pisgah. We moved to Atlanta four years ago and we were nervous about her starting a new school - making new friends, working with new teachers, etc. We couldn't be more pleased! She was embraced by the other students and the teachers treat her like family. She loved the fall retreat - where she had the chance to bond with her teachers and fellow students. She looks forward to going to school everyday and we are so happy she is in such a positive, Christian environment!

We are the parents of an elementary school student(s) here and I have had similar experience with lack of action on bullying. There does not seem to be any clear cut policy on bullying and I am amazed they do not even talk to the offending child. The academics are excellent though. The teachers seem to be passionate about their jobs but I suspect their hands are tied as to what they can do about bullies if the administration does not establish enforcable guidelines. We are actually considering changing schools because of this! We feel this is very important for the overall health and safety of our children.

My child attended early school half day for 3 years and then kindergarten. The school is totally lacking rules and disciplines. My child suffered bullying in the playground as well as classrooms. The school knew about it, but did not help much. I could not believe that a private school would allow known bullies stay at school even after they were proven to bully small, sensitive kids on constant basis.

I have a child that has attended early school full day for a year now and half way the director changed and it has been a noticeable difference! The current director is not involved, not visible and only present part time. The school is lacking rules and/or protocol to sick children and disobedient children. I believe it all starts at the director level to carry out the procedures and be proactive in improvement. I wish they'd bring the old director back who was loving and interested and had a genuine interest in the children and the policy in the school.

My son has attended the early school full day program for the last 3 years, and it truly is a wonderful place. The only thing keeping me from rating it is as 5 stars is that there has recently been a change at the director level for the school. There used to be a full time director who was wonderful, knew every child, greeted parents at drop off and pick up, and just handled most every problem and situation with extreme professionalism and efficiency. However, the current director is there as a part-time position and is not usually visible and seems to be very defensive in problem-solving. A school this large with the number of children and issues that can come up in the daycare setting should warrant a full-time director who is more visible and proactive with parents. Other than that though, the teachres and programs are absolutely first rate.

My son has attended Pisgah for the last two years in their Early School Half Day Program (preschool). We absolutely love it. Everyone from the front office to the teachers to the other parents are fantastic. You really feel like part of a big family and everyone cares about your child. We were only going to attend Pisgah for preschool, but now we wouldn't even think about leaving and he will continue his education there. Couldn't recommend it enough!

MPCS is a good place for children to gain confidence in all area of academia. It is a loving environment that can only foster confident young people in near future. All teachers are caring and loving, they are just great . My kids have attended since three years old and now they are in 1st and 4th grade and love going to school.

I cannot say enough good things about MPCS and the Christ centered approach they bring to education. My daughter is in the lower school yet we still find ourselves among the Pisgah faithful in the stands for many of the Upper School events because it's all part of the family. The whole school environment is very welcoming and they truly value each child as an individual as they seak to develop the whole person. Through continuous imprpovement efforts, the administration is not resting on it's laurels and is not content with 'close enough'. MPCS is an all around outstanding school.

Mount Pisgah is truly an exceptional school. Our family moved to Alpharetta two years ago. Previously, our two children had only attended public schools. Our children have been a part of the MPCS experience at the Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School. The students are very inclusive and welcoming. The smaller student/teacher ratios of the classrooms provide the perfect learning environment for students. Teachers are ecouraging and availabile when extra help is needed by a student. The teachers take a strong interest in each child and encourage students to advocate for themselves when offering ideas or seeking help with schoolwork. We appreciate lots of big things about the school, such as wonderful, clean facilities in addition to the small things that develop each individual student. The students have late arrival every Wednesday morning which helps them have a successful week. School administrators are accessible and welcome parental involvement.

My son has been going to Mt. Pisgah Christian School since kindergarten; he is now in 8th grade. He is always excited about going to school, we have never had a problem getting him up and going in the morning. They develop the whole child at Mt. Pisgah (Academically, Spiritually, and Physically). The school is not so big that you get lost in the crowd, every kid can find there place at Mt. Pisgah. Extra-curricular programs at the middle school and high school level are fantastic. The athletics program offers a whole host of sports for the middle school and high school students to participate in. And if sports are not your thing, the Fine Arts department does a great job and is expanding its offerings every year. The elementary school and the after school program are also top notch.

I have children in the Upper School so my views are based on my experiences there.Mt. Pisgah is a great place for athletes who want their education paid for.As long as you don't do anything illeagal,bad behavior is tolerated from a 'scholarship athlete'. English Teachers are good. Math and Foreign Language Teachers are weak.There are a number of Honors and AP courses, but because of the way the schedules are set up, students have to take advance courses in all subjects or none at all, therefore a student that excells in one subject may not be able to take an advance course in that area because he/she doesn't qualifye for advanced courses in the other subjects. AD is great with the kids and parents but can't seem to find good Coaches. School leaders do a good job of promoting the school but not at producing what they say will.

After transferring my son from public school to Mt Pisgah it has been a wonderful experience the level of academics is way beyond the level in public school. I feel my son will be well prepared for college academics once he takes that step. Mt Pisgah offers many of the extracurriclar activities that most schools offer. The atmosphere a the school is very close nite we have gotten to know many of ther parents through school, atheletics and social events catered by the parents. I would recommend this school to any parent who is looking for a good school where there child can grow academically, atheletically and spiritually.
