I arrived at MMS at the age of 12 and stayed thru graduation. The teachers and administrators were responsible role models and the instruction and discipline I received was exemplary and timely. I was taught that God should be feared, something that you don't hear much nowadays. But it established the baseline understanding I needed in order to appreciate the true value of grace and to recognize the depths of His love. Since leaving my home/school I have excelled, obtaining multiple degrees, meeting with national leaders and receiving national recognition for my volunteer service. I credit this institution for instilling in me the desire to achieve and to look for opportunities to serve God and man. Thanks to those who sacrificed for me, I was able to contribute in a significant way to our society. I can't begin to express the deep gratitude I have in my heart for the school staff and for the donors who fund its operation. There are many of us out here who are in your debt. God bless you.

I attended mountain mission school for four years. I recieved more than just a good education, I found a family. I know that because of my experience at MMS, I am a better person, and a better mother. My thoughts and prayers are with you every day. Ann Bailey

I graduated from MMS and I attended there for 9 years. I know for sure that I would not be successful had not went to school there. I am not a parent yet but when I have kids I would want my kids to have the quality of education and discipline that I got.

The staff at MMS are fully dedicated to the lives and education of their students. They give up their free time to ensure the well being of our future local and international leaders!

I can honestly say that if did not attend MMS I would have lived an undesirable life. I lived in an environment where you had to fight, lie and steal to get 'ahead' in life. I was able to see the difference in the way that the teachers behaved. Everyday that I was in MMS I was able to notice one constant truth. I noticed that the teachers not only told us about the way we were to behave, essentially live our lives, but they SHOWED us the way we are to live our lives. The teachers lead by example and that is what made me open my eyes to another way of living.

I was a student at MMS for four years with my three brother's, and thank God we had the opportuinity, to be a part of the MMS experience, the school humbled me and prepared my mind to face the many challenges in life today, Thank You mountain mission school for introducing me to another style of life other then the one I was living before I arrived there, Thank you for introducing me to discipline, and thank you for introducing me to God, You have made me the best person, father, husband I only wish there was more school's like this all over the country.

You have to experience this school to understand. It's staff is unsurpassed; its students are mannerly, spiritual, dedicated and driven. There is no other school like it on earth. Go ahead and look, there is nothing that compares.

This is a wounderful school. Mountain Mission is more than a school; it is a family.

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.
