The second I walked into Morning Star Christian School, I knew I was home. The staff was welcoming and patient with all my questions about our children's potential education here, and responded to each question thoroughly, treating me like I was already part of their family. Their values of involving the children in community outreach match mine, and that was a huge selling point for my husband and me in making the decision to send our children to MSCS. Understanding and participating in the world around us is vital to becoming an active member of the community, even at a young age. Knowing our children will be challenged according to their learning levels brings us such peace of mind, as that was a huge concern. This school recognizes when a student needs to be challenged more or have specific educational needs worked on more at home. The teachers are kind and loving and always willing to invite the parents into their classrooms. Knowing my kiddos are being taught in a truly God-loving and non-judging manner brings so much warmth into my heart, and I look forward to growing with these MSCS parents, volunteers, and administration.

We were hesitant to start the middle school scene with our son and decided to check out MorningStar. His 6th grade teacher was amazing and she really helped him excel in subjects we didn't even realize he was weak on.

I have been very pleased with the teachers and staff of Morning Star! They are not only supportive and helpful, but encouraging and loving, even when our son needs a little help. We highly recommend Morning Star! What a fun and supportive environment!

Both of my sons graduated from Morning Star Christian High School. They both continued on in their university training and did well. Most important, they walk with the Lord to this day.

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.
