Maryville Christian School is now a K-8 school. The first 8th grade class graduated last year. Now with170 students, representing over 50 area churches, it is truly becoming an established, metroeast Christian educational institution. With a challenging curriculum, and a growing list of course offerings and current methodologies, the school has expanded it's classrooms to include such technology as ELMO projectors, Promethean boards, SMART boards, a computer lab, 8th grade lab-based Science, and I could go on and on. If you are considering Christian education, please take the time to go to go-mcs.org, then schedule a tour to come visit. You will be impressed and will be eager to get your child or children into this program when have seen classrooms in action. Kids are actively engaged in their learning, from centers to Guided Reading groups to hands-on projects. Learning is active at MCS. WIth class sizes not over 16 for K-2 and 18 for 3-8, each child gets the attention they deserve and the warm, caring instruction from their teacher that you would come to expect from their school. Last year, the school achieved accreditation from the Illinois State Board of Education.
