My son has attended MHC Sanbornton for 5yrs now. He is 8yrs old and in 2nd grade. He was diagnosed with severe ADHD at age 3. Thanks to MHC Sanbornton he is now testing a full grade level ahead of the average 2nd grader in all academic areas. He would not be where he is today without MHC. The educators are exceptional in that they focus their way of teaching around how each child learns-resulting in ultimate success academically. This success gives each child a sense of well-being, pride, and instills a true love of learning that will stay with them always. I cannot think of a better way to start a child's academic journey! I whole heartedly recommend this school!

We are very happy that we chose MHC for our two children and recommend the school with confidence!

My children attended this school for a few years and at the begining it was amazing! But over the next 2-3 years I noticed a steady decline in all areas of the facility. This year we are definitely trying public, looking for an incline in quality care. If we are as dissatisfied as we were here in the last few years we will be looking into local area private facilities (ie: Sant Bani, New Hampton, etc) as we have heard lots of positive feed back in both of these departments!

A safe environment. The school now goes only to 2nd grade, which is unfortunate.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
