We currently have 3 of our 5 children enrolled at MACS (soon to be St. Francis Catholic School) and we absolutely love it. St. Francis has high academic standards, great parent involvement and wonderful administration! Small class sizes allow for excellent student/teacher ratios. We feel our children's needs are being met whether they need to be encouraged to push themselves or challenged in their advanced level. We love that our children participate in prayer services and are held accountable to the virtues our family is trying to teach. We also appreciate that our children's music programs are used as an opportunity to praise God! Financial aid is available to all (Catholics AND non-Catholics), so if you thought a dynamic, private education was out of reach, give St. Francis a call! We hope to see you.
MACS is a community of caring teachers, parents, and students. MACS has been wonderful for my children both academically and spiritually.
They help our children learn, but also give them great values to live their lives.
I am from Marshalltown, Ia, and I graduated from Marshalltown Senior High School. I am a chemist/educator and I am very pleased to see one of my hometown schools entered in this contest!!
All 3 of my children have received an excellent faith filled education at MACS.
They provide quality teaching and the smaller class that help the children that need extra help. Plus they learn about faith with is very important in today's life. Faith helps us when tough times come along and faith teaches us how we can give back to others. Children need this to grow...
My children went to MACS and this is a school that we can all be proud of. The elementary school children must go to public schools starting in 7th grade. MACS kids seem to do very well in the public school and are usually the top kids in the classes. Teachers always comment on how they can tell the kids that go to Marshalltown Catholic School.
My children went to school there and received more attention and help than they could ever have in a public school. Because of this they both graduated from high school above average grades and went on to college. One of my son's got a full ride to a private college beause of his grades. They are both very successful and confident adults because of the education they received at Marshalltown Area Catholic Schools
I have taught here for 32 years. Every year is a new, exciting adventure. Our students love learning. Our parents are great. Our teachers are experienced and dedicated.
I love the family atmosphere and the community of support from the parents at MACS.
Loving environment, focusing on my kids and forming them into Christian leaders
