There is a lack of consistency in discipline. There is a strongly worded policy that details expected behaviors for students, staff, and parents. However, it is not enforced for all. If a student is popular or friends with staff, they get a pass. This creates a hostile learning environment for the kids they choose as targets for bullying. Additionally, some (not all) staff members lack professionalism and integrity when dealing with students and their parents. The unwritten motto is, "if a parent questions something or voices a concern, attack the parent. Never admit you were wrong or address the issue." If the child is voicing concern, tell them to grow a spine and stop whining. Then continue to ignore the problem.

Had a great curriculum. Some really good teachers, who truly cared about the students. However, the unchecked bullying that is allowed creates a hostile learning environment for many. Parental involvement is encouraged, only if they deem you worthy. Some staff members will bully, lie, attack and avoid the parent, if ever questioned about issues in their classroom, and/or curriculum issues. The school has a new administrator who has already made changes to the curriculum to bring it in line with the public schools and has fired all but one of the elementary teachers. What is stated on the website as curriculum used, will not be true of the upcoming year(s). None of this was revealed to the parents at the end of the prior school year. For a school that professes Christian values, there is much ungodly behavior taking place. Many kids are leaving for other schools. Ask yourself why...

Really depends on the teacher. Some were great, but in all honesty it was a teacher's behavior this past year that was the final straw for us.

Some teachers yes- the the leadership is poor. Mrs. Nattiel is the only shining star in the administration.

The administrator is not a good man. He took over a few years ago and while the school did become accredited it's due to the dedication of many not just him. He is an ungodly man and he is disliked by staff and students alike.

The teachers in general below 8th are good, above that there are inappropriate things happening from grades being given and even inappropriate conversations between students and teachers.

Most teachers in lower grades do but in the upper grades no. From about 8th up it's not good

MCA is a wonderful school. They help students of all types achieve greater academic standing. The loving and nurturing environment encourages children to learn and the small class sizes encourage student involvement. Parent involvement is spectacular and the PTO actively raises funds for renovations, special programs, and fun activities. MCA is an extension of our family. We love MCA!

There are some ungodly things going on in this school. I have been involved with this school for two years and have been very unhappy especially the leadership. If you are looking for a real Christian environment this is not the place at all.
