    "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 think Mcscs is a good school if you don't feel like being involved and just want your child to get an easy A. My daughter has been in this school since 1st grade and she is now in 5th. she has never asked me for help with homework and shes been getting straight A's maybe a B or 2 since she started.The work is waaayyyyyyy too easy and the kids are not being challenged academically.I never heard that a child can't get lower than a C.If thats what a child deserves then so be it.She brags about 99% of kids that goes to her school goes to college BUT do they get through?NO! WHY? Because she doesn't prepare them to succeed.She just want to make her school look good.Yes the discipline is on point but thats not the only thing a child needs.Where does the education come in at in this school? Furthermore this school doesnt have gym or recess which is ridiculous!!! If youre looking for a school that academically challenges your child ,I do not recommend this school.Do not set your child up for failure! To conclude i believe this shouldve been one of the schools that they closed down.Yes its that deep!!!!!!!!"

    "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. -_-"
