I rate this school a 5 star school. It is a kind and helpful place for your children. They use Abeka books, which are harder but worth it. Just being in the school and around the children and teachers makes up feel calm spiritual. God is all over in this school.

It is a family-friendly, non-denominational, Christian school that puts the students and quality education first! My girls have now attended since kindergarten and MCS has helped them to achieve high academics and relationships that are pleasing to God and others! I couldn't have made a better choice. We are currently building our own facility and the $5000 would go directly to helping get classrooms student ready.

It has all the ingredients that makes a school great. Loving and caring enviornment, personal attention and understanding that teachers provide here is like none elese. The academic program is challenging and keeps the kids up to the mark. PE is great. We are so happy for making this choice!

Marshalltown Christian School provides an excellent Christ centered education and allows the students to excel. The teachers think outside of the box and find ways for the students to use their own gifts to learn the material presented to them. The teachers teach compassion to the kids and are very compassionate people.

This school has great teachers and a wonderful school board. The kids there are all about each other. There is no competition between students. They all help, support, and love each other. It is the way school should be.

This is the 4th year my kids have attended and I still love it! The school has increased to PreK - 6th grade and growing. The quality of education is excellent and the one on one attention from the teachers can't be matched.

My daughter is a student at this school, and it is the best choice I made in my life. The teachers are so devoted they go above and beyond their duties! It is like a big family because they really care!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
