Macon Road Baptist School is an excellent school. Our daughter transferred to MRBS in the 3rd grade from a "good" public county school. The difference in the administrative support of the teachers, the fact that the teachers care about their students and the quality of the education along with the Christian environment, our daughter and us are so pleased. We would never consider leaving MRBS. Fabulous, fabulous school.

Macon Road is a horrible school! My child transferred to Arlington High School and was a year behind because there curriculum was sooo old! Public School was better for my child! And my child was bullied several times at this school and my child was suspended because he had a mental break down and said one curse word! I Do not recommend Macon Road! Every child in the school says they hate it!

My daughters have been students at MRBS since Kindergarten, they are in 9th and 7th grades now. This school goes above and beyond expectations for a private Christian school. Every aspect is centered on a Christ based education, placing emphasis on living for Christ on a day by day basis.

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.
