MCES is a dynamic institution which offers parents and students a supportive and Islamic atmosphere and environment incorporated into the contemporary educational approach. This school encourages creative developement, academic excellence, critical reasoning, and develops high cognitive skills. It is free from almost all prospective threats existing in the public school system. The school has a Masjid facility and holds regular Zuhr Prayer. In addition to this, the school also offers state-wide competitions, field trips, A junior-high literary apex mgazine,newsletter publications, Eid activities, and other memorable events.

The academic programs are good, but the extracurricular activities are lacking. Parent involvement is excellent. There are some teachers that are gems, but some that rely heavily on the chalk and talk method of teaching.

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.
