My child transferred from another local Catholic school where he was bullied and nothing we did stopped it. My child was so unhappy and dealt with teachers he could not understand! MCS has been an eye-opening change for us. It has a strong academic program in all subjects, english, literature, religion, science, math, social studies, etc. The teachers and staff have all been welcoming, friendly, and always offer extra support and guidance. The school offers sports, music, and drama for extra curricular activities. I can't say enough about what a fantastic school this is!

An amazing school with wonderful, dedicated teachers. Strong academics and great leadership from the co-principals. My son had a great experience and excelled academically and loved his teachers. Well worth the tuition!!!

Hardly any extracurricular activities and bad teacher quality, with a failing middle school math program, not recommended.

I think the students who attend Mater Christi are more polite and respectful. In addition to the quality education there is a real sense of community there.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
