Prepare Your Student for Life Beyond the Classroom

Developing Future-Ready Students & Leaders

Our goal at MCS is not to merely help kids reach academic benchmarks, but to invest in a generation of servant leaders who love God and are equipped to serve Him wherever they are called.

That’s why we place such an emphasis on developing students’ whole selves — head, heart, and hands. This approach is no more important than when students are approaching and entering their teen years.

It has all the ingredients that makes a school great. Loving and caring enviornment, personal attention and understanding that teachers provide here is like none elese. The academic program is challenging and keeps the kids up to the mark. We are so happy for making this choice!

The 5th-8th Grade Experience

Teachers provide an encouraging and engaging environment for 5th – 8th grade students.  

Our English Language Arts teachers want students to read and write well, so they emphasize grammar, writing, and vocabulary, and teach cursive handwriting. Many of our eighth-grade students move into the advanced English class their freshman year at Marshalltown High School. 

In their social studies classes, students study both United States, world, and ancient history, and complete Ramsey Solutions’ Foundations in Personal Finance.  They also study and get to know missionaries and the missions field and hear from local professionals about their fields of work.
