Too many to thank. Happy overall with the faculty. They aren't perfect but no one is. They at least love and know my child more deeply than public school.

I feel this is something that starts at home. I do believe the parents need to instill persistence, grit and determination. The school can encourage these character traits but if parents are always swooping in and saving kids from problems then the school can't build on these traits.

There is no perfect place. The gate to the school says Mount Paran Christian School. It ain't heaven but its pretty close. The staff and faculty knows my children. My kids have missed school this summer and can't wait to get back to MPCS. Its not a fit for everyone and those who like to write ugly stuff only do so because they didn't get their way. I pray that public school is able to meet their needs. As for my family, we work through difficulties and grow stronger from it. I see MPCS as a great long term investment.

Most students are not recognized in any activity or coursework. Discipline is arbitrary. Individuality is not celebrated.

Administration does not lead by example. Students are encouraged to break the rules in order to get ahead. Only extreme Christian views are appreciated.

School officials do not exemplify Christian ideals. Administration is hypocritical and claim to follow the teachings of Jesus; however, the school fosters hate and inequity. The mean girl club started in 1st grade.

Students are disrespectful to teachers and other, not popular kids. Actions do not have consequences for all students. Rules are selectively enforced.

Average education. School focuses on football by building new stadium at the expense of needed classroom expansion. Limited diversity. Extreme "Christian" beliefs not grounded in the Bible but on administrative ignorance. Language classes before high school are merely cultural. Virtually no clubs for middle school students. Student-teacher ratio 21:1, higher than reported. Girls are not encouraged to excel but to conform. Boys have more access to sports. Girls not allowed to wear shorts; however, boys may. Dress code selectively enforced depending on family. Disparity in teachers using the electronic blackboard. A lot of teachers do not respond to email communication.

Karen Gross, now deceased, was the only teacher, administrator, or staff member who truly loved and cherished every student.

Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

Teachers are not necessarily subject-specialists. Teachers seem to move grade levels a lot. Grade-level test scores are not released or shared with parents. Curriculum does not correlate to the national testing the school implements. School makes it difficult for students to transfer.
