10/18/2011parentMy child graduated from Mount Pisgah and has enjoyed great success in both undergrad and grad school at UGA. While Mount Pisgah may not be the best choice for all, no other school could have served my child better.
8/17/2011parentMy daughter has attended Mount Pisgah Christian School for 7 years and we absolutely love it. There are so many reasons to go to school here, but a critical standout is the low student-to-teacher ratio and small class sizes. I cannot imagine her attending school where there are 5-7 classes per grade with 20-25 children in each class. I'm also thrilled with our lower school curriculum that includes for every child- at no extra charge - Spanish class, a science lab, music class, computer class and art class every single week. (Especially when so many schools are cutting out these important programs.)
5/27/2011parentMy daughter has attended Mt. Pisgah for 6 years. She has thrived academically, spiritually and socially. I send her to the school without hesitation and would recommend Mt. Pisgah to happily.
5/14/2011parentWe transferred here from a great school in Alpharetta and found the transition very easy in the middle school. The teachers have been excellent and very accessible when your child needs help. The middle school principal Paul Foltz has been terrific whenever I have had questions. We will be continuing on to the high school. We have had a wonderful experience so far!
5/9/2011parentMy two children are in the Early School Full Day Program. The school and the teachers have been such a blessing to our family. Both of my children are receiving an enriched curriculum (Bible, Spanish, Ballet, Karate and movement) and adore their caring teachers. I really struggled with the fact that I had to go back to work full time before my children started elementary school, but the time and attention that they receive at Mount Pisgh has eased my anxiety. We are fortunate to be there.
9/23/2010otherMy nephew currently attends Mt Pisgah and has also been a target of bullies. This school seems to have a real problem with bullying. They are addressing it in the lower grades but no in the middle school. I am very disapointed in how they are not addressing bullying. It is a huge problem in their middle school.
6/17/2010parentWe have been thrilled by our daughter's experience at Mount Pisgah. We moved to Atlanta four years ago and we were nervous about her starting a new school - making new friends, working with new teachers, etc. We couldn't be more pleased! She was embraced by the other students and the teachers treat her like family. She loved the fall retreat - where she had the chance to bond with her teachers and fellow students. She looks forward to going to school everyday and we are so happy she is in such a positive, Christian environment!
4/15/2010parentWe are the parents of an elementary school student(s) here and I have had similar experience with lack of action on bullying. There does not seem to be any clear cut policy on bullying and I am amazed they do not even talk to the offending child. The academics are excellent though. The teachers seem to be passionate about their jobs but I suspect their hands are tied as to what they can do about bullies if the administration does not establish enforcable guidelines. We are actually considering changing schools because of this! We feel this is very important for the overall health and safety of our children.
4/2/2010parentMy child attended early school half day for 3 years and then kindergarten. The school is totally lacking rules and disciplines. My child suffered bullying in the playground as well as classrooms. The school knew about it, but did not help much. I could not believe that a private school would allow known bullies stay at school even after they were proven to bully small, sensitive kids on constant basis.
12/14/2009parentI have a child that has attended early school full day for a year now and half way the director changed and it has been a noticeable difference! The current director is not involved, not visible and only present part time. The school is lacking rules and/or protocol to sick children and disobedient children. I believe it all starts at the director level to carry out the procedures and be proactive in improvement. I wish they'd bring the old director back who was loving and interested and had a genuine interest in the children and the policy in the school.
12/4/2009parentMy son has attended the early school full day program for the last 3 years, and it truly is a wonderful place. The only thing keeping me from rating it is as 5 stars is that there has recently been a change at the director level for the school. There used to be a full time director who was wonderful, knew every child, greeted parents at drop off and pick up, and just handled most every problem and situation with extreme professionalism and efficiency. However, the current director is there as a part-time position and is not usually visible and seems to be very defensive in problem-solving. A school this large with the number of children and issues that can come up in the daycare setting should warrant a full-time director who is more visible and proactive with parents. Other than that though, the teachres and programs are absolutely first rate.
2/25/2009parentMy son has attended Pisgah for the last two years in their Early School Half Day Program (preschool). We absolutely love it. Everyone from the front office to the teachers to the other parents are fantastic. You really feel like part of a big family and everyone cares about your child. We were only going to attend Pisgah for preschool, but now we wouldn't even think about leaving and he will continue his education there. Couldn't recommend it enough!
1/23/2009parentMt. Pisgah provides not only a tremendous educational program but also creates an environment in which the student is enabled to excel personally.
10/26/2008parentMPCS is a good place for children to gain confidence in all area of academia. It is a loving environment that can only foster confident young people in near future. All teachers are caring and loving, they are just great . My kids have attended since three years old and now they are in 1st and 4th grade and love going to school.
9/26/2008parentI cannot say enough good things about MPCS and the Christ centered approach they bring to education. My daughter is in the lower school yet we still find ourselves among the Pisgah faithful in the stands for many of the Upper School events because it's all part of the family. The whole school environment is very welcoming and they truly value each child as an individual as they seak to develop the whole person. Through continuous imprpovement efforts, the administration is not resting on it's laurels and is not content with 'close enough'. MPCS is an all around outstanding school.
5/30/2008parentMount Pisgah is truly an exceptional school. Our family moved to Alpharetta two years ago. Previously, our two children had only attended public schools. Our children have been a part of the MPCS experience at the Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School. The students are very inclusive and welcoming. The smaller student/teacher ratios of the classrooms provide the perfect learning environment for students. Teachers are ecouraging and availabile when extra help is needed by a student. The teachers take a strong interest in each child and encourage students to advocate for themselves when offering ideas or seeking help with schoolwork. We appreciate lots of big things about the school, such as wonderful, clean facilities in addition to the small things that develop each individual student. The students have late arrival every Wednesday morning which helps them have a successful week. School administrators are accessible and welcome parental involvement.
4/15/2008parentWe have been very pleased with the newcomer experience at Mount Pisgah Christian School! This is our daughter's second year at the middle school and we are thrilled with the family-friednly atmosphere, the excpetional teachers, and the faith-based approach to learning. We just can't say enough goood things!
11/2/2007parentMy son has been going to Mt. Pisgah Christian School since kindergarten; he is now in 8th grade. He is always excited about going to school, we have never had a problem getting him up and going in the morning. They develop the whole child at Mt. Pisgah (Academically, Spiritually, and Physically). The school is not so big that you get lost in the crowd, every kid can find there place at Mt. Pisgah. Extra-curricular programs at the middle school and high school level are fantastic. The athletics program offers a whole host of sports for the middle school and high school students to participate in. And if sports are not your thing, the Fine Arts department does a great job and is expanding its offerings every year. The elementary school and the after school program are also top notch.
5/22/2006parentMt. Pisgah School have an excellent curriculum and Athletic activities.
4/22/2006parentI have children in the Upper School so my views are based on my experiences there.Mt. Pisgah is a great place for athletes who want their education paid for.As long as you don't do anything illeagal,bad behavior is tolerated from a 'scholarship athlete'. English Teachers are good. Math and Foreign Language Teachers are weak.There are a number of Honors and AP courses, but because of the way the schedules are set up, students have to take advance courses in all subjects or none at all, therefore a student that excells in one subject may not be able to take an advance course in that area because he/she doesn't qualifye for advanced courses in the other subjects. AD is great with the kids and parents but can't seem to find good Coaches. School leaders do a good job of promoting the school but not at producing what they say will.
9/26/2005parentAfter transferring my son from public school to Mt Pisgah it has been a wonderful experience the level of academics is way beyond the level in public school. I feel my son will be well prepared for college academics once he takes that step. Mt Pisgah offers many of the extracurriclar activities that most schools offer. The atmosphere a the school is very close nite we have gotten to know many of ther parents through school, atheletics and social events catered by the parents. I would recommend this school to any parent who is looking for a good school where there child can grow academically, atheletically and spiritually.
