After our experience there, I feel that the upper gradr students are more prone to bullying than at a secular school. The situation became bad that we pulled our child out. Not much diversity here, and a couple of teachers should resign based on outdated and ignorant forms discipline. Parents, who are mostly puerto rican, display tacky behavior and are very closed minded.

The preschool teacher openly admitted to pushing my son to teach him that it's not nice to push other kids. The kids are learning how to bully from the teachers.

Not worth the money. The principal is unprofessional and under qualified (has a bachelors in geography). The teachers are kind and deserve better pay with the exception of the principals wife who is a tyrant and the gym teacher who has it out for the kids. Worst experience and a very bad representation of Christianity.

My children are receiving an excellent education at Midwestern Christian Education. More importantly, they are surrounded by teachers and leadership that genuinely care for them. They have been a blessing to our family. I highly recommend MCA, talk to the principal, he is very accommodating and kind.

I love this school. As a parent, I find that the school holds rigorous and competative curriculum. That is fostered in a small and safe learning environment. As a Christian, I love how all the teachers are strong in their relationship with Christ and present that in their teaching. The teachers are great examples to the students and love the Lord. I could not find a warmer environment for my child to grow academically and spiritually. Oh.. and exel physically as well, since two gym periods are offered per week and daily recess in encouraged!

The academic and discipline of the school has really decreased over the years. There is a lot of bullying in almost all grade levels and the administration is not addressing the problem. It is really a sad situation at the moment. The school hasn't improved their curriculum over the years and there is no differentiation of instruction. They need to restructure their curriculum to make it more hands-on and meeting 21st century expectations.

I love this school! Great academics plus it teaches great moral values and etiquette for every day living. The only con is that some students have some behavioral issues that needs to be addressed. Other than that I would continue sending my daughter there if finances permits.

Academics - beautiful, love it! But this school has a lot of authority issues caused by behavioral problems from the students. There is not a strong enforcement for discipline or increasing Christian behavior. Too much of public school behaviors.
