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.

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 student 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.
