This school is fantastic! My granddaughter attends this school and I am so pleased with her teacher and all of the staff. They are caring and they love the Lord! They are so concerned that my granddaughter does good in school. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a great school that actually cares about the children.

Our daughter has been attending Michiana Christian School since kindergarten and is now in the 4th grade. We believe she has excelled so much due to the small classroom size and the individualized attention the students receive. Most importantly, the school teaches the principles of christianty and the love of God, the students are also taught to honor and respect thier parents, teachers, and everyone in authority and each other.

Michiana Christian School (Sonrise Preschool) is such a great learning environment for all students. It rangers from preschool and K-6th grade. I have had friends and family both attend these school or have had children enrolled as students and have heard many great things about it. The teachers are very friendly and are involved in the students' lives inside and outside the school. They show concern on behalf of the students and take their education very seriously. I would highly recommend this school as a great place for young students to not only be educated in the general studies but as well as Christian principles and how to live our lives daily according to God's word. I would trust them with my future children to teach them as much about math, spelling, english, and reading as much as teaching them the word of God.

We have sent our little girl to three local schools, all with different strengths and weaknesses. First, we sent her to kindergarten at Kennedy Magnet school for highly able children. Kennedy had "lunch" at 9:40! and only one, too-brief, recess. She lost 5 Lbs in Kindergarten, and her health suffered. Next year, we sent her to Good Shepherd Montessori, where her health improved, BUT--. The teaching was uneven, and academic achievement was below par for a bright and able child. At Michiana Christian School, there is a reasonable & appropriate schedule for keeping children healthy: adequate time for active play, and regular snacks and lunch. At the same time, I can say from close observation and experience that the academic achievement of the children at MCS surpasses that of the children at Kennedy magnet school -- OR Good Shepherd. Even though Kennedy only admits children who test "highly able" intellectually, MSC , without any such test, has higher achieving children. Class sizes are half what they are at Kennedy or Good Shepherd, and tuition is less than half Good Shepherd's tuition. Karen Hammond-Nash, a parent

Be careful here... Most of the positive reviews are written by the principal. This school used to be the premiere school in the area but has really slipped in the past couple of years. the students are second to everything else. Money is the first thing on their mind.

Michiana Christian School is an awesome place for children to grow in their faith. The teaching staff and the principal share Christ's love in a very real way with students and families. Students are given countless opportunities to grow academically and are encouraged to be life long learners. This school is amazingly affordable for the priceless service they provide.

Wow...this school is all about the kids. I haven't seen a principal work so hard to know each and every child...they love her! And the staff is loving and trained to deal with all level of kids. So glad we have kept our kids in such a nurturing and academically challenging environment where God is the center!

My husband and I are so happy with love and attention are children receive from the teachers at MCS. The classes are small so the personal attention has been such a bonus for our girls and we love the challenging curriculum . We are excited to be part of a school with such strong leadership in place. We are also excited to be part of the growth we are experiencing at MCS. When I asked my girls what they loved about their school their answer was their teachers and principal.

I am so happy with this school. My daughter started attending in preschool and now is in 1st grade. The teachers are so caring, the classes are small and she is learning great values along with learning how to read, write and add/subtract. Would highly recommend the school.

Extreme lack of leadership! I wouldn't recommend them at all! The children are not a priority.

My daughter attended this school from 1st thru 6th grade. We just loved Michiana Christian and were so sad to have to leave when she graduated from there. We truly felt like part of a family and would highly recommend the school.

This year the board and faculty of Michiana Christian School have implemented soccer, basketball, and baseball for grades 2 - 6. They do listen to parents concerns regarding extra cirricular activities and a desire for sports. Even so, academia will remain the focus. Sharon Serwatka

One word will sum this school up nicely. Amazing. I am so pleased with the love, the sense of community, and the level of teaching at this small school. It is a very accelerated program, but given in such a way it is easily absorbed by the child. I feel blessed our child is able to attend.

My son has been attending MCS for two years now. He is currently in first grade and I am convinced that the education he is receiving there is well worth the cost (it's not that expensive!). The teachers at MCS are some of the very best and actually CARE about the children. Not only is my son learning things he would not learn until third or fourth grade in a public school, he is getting Christian values reinforced all day long- not just when he is at home. Since it is a smaller, private school, the parents are made aware early on that they are expected to be involved. But in my opinion, parents should be! Look into this school and you will be surprised at how wonderful it really is! I would highly recommend MCS to any Christain family who wants their child to have a great education!
