The teachers at MCCS were really invested in my child. She attended MCCS from kindergarten to first grade and would have stayed here to completing fifth grade. Her kindergarten teacher- Sister Lucy and her first grade teacher -Ms. Kavita invested such care into her teachings that they are amazing, they have gone above and beyond to teach her! They were teaching her so many subjects that she would not have had access to in a regular HISD school. During her time here she was taught French, Latin and Spanish and has retained all the teachings of every language. I am very sad to see this school close as I see that it was very beneficial to every student that attended this school. I only hope to find a school that teaches/mentors students the way they did. Hats off to all of the teachers at MCCS!

I hate that this school maybe closed. I love the school and my son is advanced above his sister who is a grade behind him.

I am happy with the accomplishments that my kid attending kindergarten has made this year. We recently moved to Houston a few months back and my child didn t know English, during this time he has learned to talk, read and write English. They give him vocabulary words each week that helps him expand his knowledge in the language. Also this helps him to learn how to use the dictionary. I would recommend the school to any parent because with the Montessori curriculum the children really learn a lot.

i have been a student at the Medical Center Charter School for nine years,and i can honestly say that this is a wonderful school.The school has changed greatly over the past years.MCCS has grown in size and remendously,there are also many more students,and the staff is amazing.The teachers are nice,smart,helpful,and eager to teach you.The principal is very intelligent;actually she is one of the smartest people that i have had the fortune to meet.When i first started trying to learn math ,i had some difficulties,but she patiently helped me to become a much better math student.The foreign language classess are a challenge,but now i can fluently speak Spanish,French,and Latin.My experiences at the Medical Center Charter School have beem marvelous,and i highly reccomend you become a member of this fine institution of higher learning!

fine arts -art room- is used as a classroom because the school is overcrowded, the art teacher teaches out of a box and goes to each class.

To be fair, I must start with saying that this school does go above and beyond with teaching the children. However, I am sorely disappointed with the administration here. Classes are huge and overcrowded - 36 preschoolers with one teacher plus an aid. It's unbelievable really, that the kids do learn. Anyone considering MCCS should know that the school has absolutely ZERO organization. It's a serious problem. It's so disorganized that I don't feel safe leaving my daughter. Also, she is three and if she arrives after her classmates have left the drop-off area in the morning, she is sent to walk to her class (in an outbuilding) alone. This would never happen at another school. My daughter has enjoyed her main teacher this year, however, the aid has caused her much anxiety. She cries every morning that she doesn't want to go because this person is "mean to us" (the children). I have recently become aware that as a punishment, children are made to stand by the wall with their arms out to their sides, airplane style for some period of time. This is both physically uncomfortable and humiliating to children. Sadly, i cannot recommend MCCS and will not return next year.

My child attends MCCS school on Mullins. She is happy and loves her teachers.Principal ,Staff and Administrators are very kind and proficient. Students can log into the Study Island from home and practice what they learned in the school. MCCS is a good school and I am happy my child is attending a great school.

The Medical Center Charter School is a very unorganized school with overcrowded classes and I wouldn't recommend any parent to send their child to this school because of these poor conditions...whomever runs this schools has no business running it or anything else for that matter...I am totally disappointed with every aspect of the Medical Center Charter School, they're UNSATISFACTORY beyond words!!



- a parent
I heard the curriculum was good here (and I am speaking of the MCCS on Mullins), but my child doesnt like the school for whatever reason. It's making me quite uneasy. My child is pretty sociable and loves school, typically, but always says they dislike it. I dont know. I have an uncomfortable feeling --- not the "secure" feeling that I had at her last school.
