Mount Paran Christian School
Develops grit: Strongly disagree

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.

Mount Paran Christian School
Amount of homework: Too much

Posted April 19, 2016

Nearly every piece of homework is graded. This is counter-productive when learning new concepts, especially in Math. A lot of homework is busy work. Lots of at-home projects requiring more expense in supplies.

A huge thank you to Steve Bohlmann, the Academic Dean, for everything he does to help the students and teachers of MPCS!

Mount Paran Christian School
Amount of homework: Just right

Posted March 11, 2016

I think it is just right- the bigger question for parents to consider is class placement. I had one child who thrived with the rigor of honors and AP and could handle that load, my other child required core classes with select honors courses.
