Macon Road Baptist School provides a quality Christian education, practices academic excellence, and promotes Biblical leadership skills by teaching the mind and reaching the heart of each student for Jesus Christ.

High school courses are very limited and are chosen by school administration (i.e. all freshmen take the same classes, all sophmores take the same classes, etc.). Extra curricular activities (fine arts, etc.) are non graded courses and are offered for an additional fee after school. Discipline is extremely strict (my child has actually been disciplined for raising their hand to ask a question on more than one occassion). Needs improvement on parental communication. Also be prepared to pack a lunch, the cafeteria offers frozen food purchased from Sams/Costco to heat in the microwave.

This is our 3rd year at MRBS and we are absolutely amazed at what our son has learned. He was reading in K-4 and K-5 and now in first grade his reading skills are excellent. We have been very pleased with every aspect of MRBS. They truly excel in education and care about each child's spiritual health. Our son is gaining a great education and a strong foundation in Christ. Mr. Thorell, the administrator, always stresses the fact that MRBS is NOT a "private" school, it is a CHRISTIAN school and the difference is very effident. Christ centered education- it doesn't get any better!

Wonderful school where I know my kids are safe while getting a quality education. I wish they encouraged more fun in the earlier grades, even preschool, but I understand the need to be strict. They may take it a bit too far at times, but worth the safety and security I have sending my kids there.

It is truly a great Christian school with an amazing low fee. The leadership has a strong faith and vision. My two boys in K4 and K5 learned and grew both academically and spiritually.

I love this school. My son loves it too! This is only our second year there, but the teachers are great! He has learned so much in such little time. It is a great school! I do wish there were more extracurricular activities for the elementary students.

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.
