    "This school has poor academic academic standards that seem designed to "dumb down" above average students, and no facilities for any extra-curricular activities. Unless your child cannot cope in a "regular" school, there is very little reason to send your child to this school."

    "After our June 20 post, the Head of School contacted us to express his disappointment and correct our facts: (1) He did not hire his wife as Head of Communications & Admissions. She was hired via a separate process and has a different supervisor. (2) She didn't mistype our e-mail; she corrected it. True - after we sent messages requesting it corrected, it was. (3) Many parents volunteer at the school. We must not have tried hard enough. (We volunteered to lead an after-school robotics course, and we only followed up once). (4) There IS aftercare at another school (for extra cost) & MSS transports some kids there. We should have known about this. (5) Not all stories told at Worship are violent OT tales. If we had attended Worship more often, we'd know that. (6) The 5th grader who left the commencement ceremony crying had only been at the school for 2+ years not six. Also, his mother and grandmother were mistaken. He wasn't crying because his name was omitted from the list of 5th grade students in the commencement book (because his family chose to take him out of the school before end of year). It was because he missed his MSS friends. / ...So, we're leaving after 2 years."

    "I'm a teacher at another private school of the same grades Pre-K - 8th and a mother at Mustard Seed. Most people don't understand that not every school is for every child. MSS focuses on the complete child. Their curriculum seems not as in dept as traditional schools because it isn't. MSS finds ways to breakdown the fundamentals of work from the basics so that children can understand why things must be done this way. Math for example isn't taught as 1+1=2 it's taught as why does this sigh exist. Beyond looking at your child as an individual and helping him or her find themselves. MSS teaches a strong Christian faith. The faculty are loving, caring and go beyond their way to provide knowledge. For me I describe MSS as a school as having the faith as a Catholic school, the exploration as a Montessori and the interdependence as a charter school. Like I said its not for everyone."

    "imaginative, creative, strikes me as the best way to learn--and such a great atmosphere--if I had children I'd send them here. I loved it!"

    "While I am not a parent at the school (I don't have any children), I am a community member who is a supporter and fan of the Mustard Seed School program. After having been introduced to MSS years ago, I continue to be amazed by this school's unique, innovative, and rich approach to education. The school has found a way to incorporate into their daily routines a wide variety of learning experiences, such as establishing an "I Love Math Day," offering children choice and freedom as they work on their art projects, giving a book to each child on their birthday, matching younger and older students for mutual learning and mentoring, and providing worship times that highlight a variety of faith traditions. Community is fostered amongst children of diverse backgrounds which enhances their shared learning. I appreciate that financial scholarships are provided to fifty percent of the student body, enabling all families the opportunity to participate in this outstanding educational experience."
