Mt. Pleasant Christian School has been a fantastic influence in my children’s’ lives. We moved from California where our children were in private school, we placed them in the Chesapeake public school system for a year and a half. The public system is on point academically but lacked so many other positive life influences. Coming from the military, we depend on school ratings to choose the right academic institution for our children; these ratings are not available for the private schools and Chesapeake public schools are rated so high. However, in the public system we saw our children change emotionally; they became self-conscious of their appearance and were losing their free spirited childhood interests. As we already move every few years, we were reluctant to make the change to another school but also couldn’t bear to see the kids grow up so fast, so we made the change mid-year. Academically, Mt. Pleasant was at the same level as the public school. The kids were accepted and treated as if they had been going there for years. The small class sizes allow for more teacher-parent interaction. The kids are now part of school events (at the public school they didn't have the same opportunity). It is a wonderful feeling to see the children so happy, on stage singing, in plays, in year round sports and with truly wonderful, caring friends. The teachers all know the children and genuinely care for them. My kids were in Kindergarten, fourth and fifth grades. My older two have been on honor roll both in the private sector and the public school system. We also use the after school program and my children get upset when I pick them up early because they have so much fun. My son has taken keyboard and my daughter participated in the afterschool supplemental art class. They also have enrichment classes through-out the year and regular field-trips. I highly recommend the school.

Mt. Pleasant Christian School has wonderful teachers who sincerely care about the children they teach. The students are caring and supportive to one another and a joy to be around. Our children, in 2nd and 4th grade have flourished and grown both spiritually and academically while being there. They have enjoyed playing keyboard and my son played trumpet for awhile. 4th grade through 8th can play sports and thoroughly enjoy themselves while exhibiting great sportsmanship. Parents and Coaches (who are either teachers or parents), as well as the students can be heard commending both teams players on plays. Parents as well as grandparents, aunts, other family members and friends are seen at all functions supporting the children's programs, fairs and events. The teacher's always give the students the attention they need and the students love them for it. It's an atmosphere of respect and encouragement.

Great school. Nurturing environment. My boys felt at home and were immediately greeted when they walked through the door. Teachers are willing to do what is takes so that a child understands and grasps the concepts taught. They cater to all the children not the lowest common denominator. Highly recommend this school!

This is a great back-to-the-basics school with qualified teachers who teach because it is their passion. They lift up each child's talents and make them feel special. The environment is very nurturing which is ideal for all grade levels. The academics are solid and up to par to our local public schools. The only drawback is that this school does not have the funding to offer much in the way of extras like Music and Art classes or after school clubs. It is an affordable Christian school with a 'family-like' environment. I would stongly recommend it for the early grades.

Great School! - Christian family atmosphere - Well behaved kids - most classes are less than 15 students. Good academics: my daughter is ahead of the public school kids for her grade. I'd like to see more recess for the younger kids, but probably if a few of us parents talked about it with the Principal, it might get increased next year. Tuition is a bargain - $350 per month I think. Originally Mennonite, now non-denominational. Teachers teach core christian values and principals. Lord willing, all my kids will go to this school. website is www.mpcs4kids.org

This is a Great Christian School If you are willing to Participate and take the time in a lot of its activities like fundraisers. There is a little over a hundred Kids. It's not that pricey and is a great school overall. Most of the kids enjoy it.
