    "do not send your kids to this school! this school is for kids that are not interested in learning at all but wants straight A's. Ms.Joyner doesn't allow the teachers to give any grade below a C, even if they completely failed.!!! So basically good behavior gets you straight A's !!! which shouldn't be the case I feel as though kids should work and actually earn their grades and not just have grades handed to them! Before going there I was always an all A B student but when I started going there all of a sudden im getting straight A's in subjects that I know darn well I never did work nor homework. One trimester I decided to do an experiment, and not do any work at all and fail test on purpose and I still ended up with straight A's. I think this school should be on the list of schools to be closed and have another school getting the funds that actually have kids that are willing to work for their grades !!!!!"

    "The teachers are not certified/qualified teachers. Some of them are former students. Others may have attended college but no degree obtained. Therefore, they can not teach anywhere else. And the computer science teacher went to MCSCS to service a computer and was offered a job (suspect?) No gym, no recess One good thing I can truly say about MCSCS, my children know the names of every president in American History."

    "May not be the best program for first graders, there is no recess or gym. The expectations were not realistic for first graders that do not have recess or gym. You cannot expect first graders to sit down all day without a physical activity and behave well. First graders need physical activity. As a parent, I thought not having gym or recess would be so problematic, but it is."

    "I am an alumni of MCSCS, I've attended this school from 5th-12th. Grades 5th - 7th I've actually learned something and was able to understand the teachings. It was my later years where the struggle began. The grading methods is VERY POOR! NO child can fail, NO child receives less than a C, regardless if you actually work or not. Throughout my years of attendance, many teachers have tried to encourage me to attend another school. Regretfully, I stayed thinking it was a "Easy A", not realizing I was cheating myself of my very own education. There are plenty of Alumni's who came back for tutoring because they could barely READ! I would recommend this for grades K-4, any grades higher than that, RUN! Education is VERY important, and for the school to be so strict.. most of the teachers aren't qualified teachers. -_-"

    "I am a parent of a current student at MCSCS. I must admit I was a lot more confident in this school during the earlier grades. However now I am starting to doubt the grading system and the lack of technology in the classrooms. A write and wipe board as the only means of teaching? and lets not forget the worksheets of course. My child brought home a text book that was very old and out of date. Ummm........ a little behind the times. My child complains that she can not concentrate in class because the students are misbehaving and the teacher has to constantly stop to correct them. Im not crazy about the idea that she has spent years without recess and there is no curriculum for gym, which is a requirement. Over all I do think it is better than a neighborhood school. However now that she is older I am going to transfer her to a school with better technology, gym equipment, foreign language, updated books, and a more rigorous academic component."
