Student Testimonials

Daniela B. – Alumni

I am an MCA alumni having graduated from the high school in 2012 and I have nothing else to say but good things. It is truly a special place. I actually have a lot to thank MCA for. It really did appear at a crucial moment in my life where I was a little lost with no idea where to go or what path to take. It provided me with an environment where I could be myself and where I was at peace and it was this newfound peace that I found at MCA with the support from Ms. Acosta and all the other teachers as well, Mr. F, Ms. Jonasson, and Ms. Perez, that nurtured me so that I could then dedicate all my energy to finding out my own path which I eventually did! Therefore, I strongly recommend recommend MCA.

Lauren – 6th Grade

I chose MCA because I was a homeschooling student re-entering regular schooling, and we thought MCA would be great.  Also, I travel a lot and MCA allows me to take work with me so I don't fall behind.

MCA has helped me achieve my goals by always having supporting friends and teachers around me.  MCA has also allowed me to build strong friendships.  Lastly, MCA is the only school I have ever attended that I have had straight A's in because all my teachers are very encouraging, supportive and responsible.  I have a lot of respect for them.

I have a very strong bond with all my friends at MCA.  All the students here are very nice.  I found it easy to make friends.  I have friends in many grades, not just mine.

MCA is a very nice school that I very much enjoy and that other people should try out.

Lukas – 3rd Grade

There were bullies at my old school so it wasn't fair there and I changed to MCA. This school doesn't have any bullies. It has nice friends and kind teachers, and we have two recesses.  I am thankful that MCA is a great school and for how peaceful it is.

Guy – 6th Grade

I chose MCA because the classes are smaller so it is easier to concentrate.  MCA has helped me get better grades in school and focus more without being distracted.

Luciano – 8th Grade

I wasn't really learning much in my other school so my parents decided to put me at MCA.  MCA has helped me achieve my goals of learning new things every single day and every single year.

My teachers are like close friends to me because everything you tell them they understand and you can trust them.  My relationship with the other students at MCA is amazing because I get along so well with them.

MCA is not like other schools.  I feel like MCA is my second family because every single day and year I feel welcomed to the school.

Valeria – 3rd Grade

There were a lot of people in my old school and the teachers were not very good.  I like everything about the teachers at MCA. I also like that there's no homework sometimes, and school is fun.

I would tell new students that this is the best school ever and they will have lots of fun here.

Ellie – 5th Grade

My mom wanted a small school that could focus on academics and where teachers can focus on a small amount of students.  This school also looked very beautiful  and very unique.  MCA looked like a really nice place for me to learn.

I like how every classroom is small so, if you have trouble with something, a teacher would be there to help you!  I also like how everyone knows each other and the high-schoolers often play with the smaller elementary kids.  MCA feels like one big family because of how close everyone here is to one another and how small the classrooms are.

The teachers can make jokes in the middle of class and have fun, but we still get to finish our work because they are awesome.  When we were doing a long test Ms. J got us donuts and sweets!  Ms. S does really cool science experiments, and we also play games in Social Studies to learn more about the subject.

To someone thinking about coming here I would tell them how incredible MCA is and how kind everyone is here.  It's a lot of fun to be here and I wish I could stay for the rest of my life.  MCA has really fun and great activities that we all do as a group.  I love that, every year, our school takes part in the Act4Me fundraiser and we always raise more than our goal.  The money helps children with disabilities go to therapy.  I think that's really amazing and kind.

Jack – 8th Grade

MCA fit my style of learning.  Instead of me adjusting to a certain style of learning, the learning itself adjusted to me.  Learning is individualized here.

I am very happy that MCA is my school.  It has changed my life in great ways.

David – 10th Grade

I chose MCA because when  I saw how energetic the school was I wanted to join it.  MCA helped me achieve my goals by showing me the right path.  MCA brings in guest speakers to talk to us and give us advice, and it has been a great experience.

The relationships with my teachers are like a relationship with your parents; you ask them for advice, they're very friendly, and you know they will always be there for you.  The relationship with other MCA students is like brothers and sisters.

MCA, stay the same, never change, and keep on being  loving and caring!

Calista_web

Calista – 5th Grade

I came to MCA because at my old school, we had lots of homework and lots of students.  Since I have three hours of gymnastics almost every day, I didn't have that much time to finish everything.  School work at my old school was also hard for me because my teachers could not answer everyone's questions since there were too many students.

I like how MCA is a small, loving family. The classrooms are small but cozy, and the teachers are nice and friendly.  No one is ever left alone in MCA because everyone has a kind, caring friend.

The teachers in MCA are all nice and friendly.  They teach their students what's right from what's wrong, and are always there to save the day.  The teachers all work very hard to make the students in MCA rockstars, and we all appreciate what they do.

I get to hang out with my friends during recess and sit next to them during lunch.  Outside of school I will text and call them to keep in touch and also get together with them.

I think MCA is the best place for me, especially with all the wonderful teachers and friends.  Everyone is kind and loving to each other.  I love all my thoughtful friends because they always bring a smile to my face.

Anna – 8th Grade

I liked the environment at MCA, and everyone made it a fun and positive atmosphere.  It has helped me become more of an individual person and become associated with a variety of different people.  With a one-on-one experience, the relationship students have with their teachers is a safe and comfortable one.

Because of the small classrooms and mixed activities, I have been able to become friends with a mix of different and unique people.  I would advise any new students to come  in and be themselves, since everyone here is open-minded.

I want to thank MCA for creating an environment that allowed me to be myself and find out more about myself that I didn't know before.

Sophie_lr

Sophie – 8th Grade

I chose MCA because, given the small learning environment, teachers could help one on one.  I have seen that I work best in smaller environments.  When I arrived at MCA I was a shy girl who came from a school that did not benefit me in the certain way I learned.  I was packed with homework every night.  With the amount of help MCA has given me in only a few months of attending this school I have advanced in so many subjects.  Also, I have still been able to attend after school activities. This school has helped me in so many ways and I am so grateful for that.

Luiza – 11th Grade

I came to MCA because my old school had way too much homework, horrific bathrooms, and lots of curse words.  The things I like best about MCA are the teachers, friends, fun, and the nice small classrooms.  The teachers are kind, caring, amazing, and awesome.  I spend time playing games and talking with my friends during recess time.

To someone who is thinking of coming here I would say that MCA is an amazing school where the teachers are the best and you would have great friends.  I love MCA a lot.

Theseus – 7th Grade

MCA has given me the option to do things I never could have done at other schools, for example sailing.  Being here has opened up many horizons and expanded my mind to the point where I can create, explore, and change at my own pace.  I firmly believe that my relationship with all of my teachers is like a growing friendship that started at the beginning of the year.  By the end of the year I think I'll feel like over the school year I met new friends, not new teachers.

I feel since coming to this school I've met some good friends who I hope to continually know throughout the years I'm here at MCA.  I also think my relationship with won't change from the point they are at now, and if it does, maybe it will be to become better friends than we are right now.

Samantha – 9th Grade

I have chosen MCA because it contains a safe environment and the teachers care about the students and their work.  MCA has helped me make new friends, and it also helped me be less shy. 

My grades also improved ever since I came to this school. MCA is a very special school that is not like any other school.  It contains awesome teachers and students.  Being in this school is special and magical.

Eva

Eva – 3rd Grade

I came to MCA because my brother was here.  I also was getting bullied at my old school. What I like best about MCA is that it has nice teachers that are kind and generous and funny.   I also like the Student Council's fun activities and the amazing subjects.  Another thing I like is that all the students here are friends.  Those are only a few of the reasons I like MCA but there are many more.

To a new student who is thinking of coming to MCA I would say that MCA is a bright place where fun, funny teachers, games, school activities, and all different personalities come into one school.  MCA is a fantastic school where everyone is friends.

Alexander – 9th Grade

MCA helped me achieve my goals because the way the teachers teach is personalized, and the small classroom environment has also helped.
If you are thinking about coming to MCA you should know that you will make lots of friends and you will also have a great time learning!  Once you go to MCA you never feel like leaving.

Martin

Martin – 9th Grade

I chose MCA because of its focus on essential and central part of education, and it was small enough that one can focus on both work and the social aspects of the school.  My relationship with my teachers is good, and we get along well enough that we are honest with each other and can be helpful to each other.  My relationship with the other students is a good one.  The students here have quickly become my friends.

Marlene – 7th Grade

I chose MCA because I liked Ms. J and her daughter [who is a student here]. MCA helped me use my skills in my assignments as well as learning subjects I want to learn about. I feel close to my teachers and feel like I can talk with them about more personal matters. MCA is a really great school, and the teachers and students are mostly kind.

Jacob

Jacob – 8th Grade

I chose MCA because I decided that I needed to be in a safe environment to learn.  MCA has helped me learn how good I am at math and helped me get into an honors class.  It has also made me enjoy school and to be excited to go to school.At MCA you make tons of friends, and you learn to enjoy school.  I have a great relationship with all of my teachers and also made long lasting friendships with my peers.

This school has done wonderful things for my education and I wouldn't have reached my full potential at any other school.

Mehdi – 11th Grade

I was looking for a school that would help me improve my grades.  MCA has given me the opportunity to do so by helping me focus and stay on top of my work.My relationship with my teachers is positive, and they are all very friendly.  I also have a good relationship with the other MCA students.  Everyone gets along and there are no problems.

My advice for other students is to stay on top of your work so you can turn in quality assignments. Overall, MCA is a very good school and has helped me better myself.

Mehdi

Eva

Mathilde – 5th Grade

Before I came to MCA I wasn't learning.  It wasn't fun to learn at my old school, and it felt like it was only I who did not under-stand, but it wasn't.  With my friends I always felt like the weird tagalong.  Now I have better friends and I'm not getting bad grades, and it is more fun to learn.

The teachers at MCA are caring.  When a student is feeling unrecognized or sad and left out, they always fix it.  I feel lucky to have teachers who make class fun.

My friends and I have fun all the time.  We discuss problems like a debate and are always doing silly things at recess or at lunch or in the classroom when we have a little time.  We have a student council that makes up fun activities,and we have nice teachers.

Now that I'm going into 6th grade I wont spend as much time with my elementary school friends.  I will still see them and play with them at recess, but I will also make new friends. I will absolutely need them to help me use a computer and make me laugh when I'm feeling down.  I wasn’t able to do that at my other school.

Chase – 7th Grade

I chose MCA because it allows me to do more things outside of school becausethere is very little homework.  MCA has helped me work on my math and language arts.  I have improved my writing ability, and I am now a year ahead in math.I feel as if I have a really good relationship with my teachers.  I can tell that the teach-ers care a lot about the students, and to me they are like a second set of parents.At MCA everybody is nice to each other.  Even if you don't know someone, they are still nice to you.  At MCA everybody is like a big family.

Chase

Fabricio

Fabrico – 9th Grade

The relationship that I have with the teachers is like a family.  They really care about us, and they will do anything to make you understand the lesson better and help you as long as you need it.  The students of MCA are also like family.  When some-one is feeling down, there is always someone that comes and tries to cheer him or her up.

MCA is just an amazing school! The teachers are amazing, the students are amazing, and our principal goes out of her way to make MCA how it is today!

Myles – 5th Grade

I came to MCA because my old school had way too much homework, horrific bathrooms, and lots of curse words.  The things I like best about MCA are the teachers, friends, fun, and the nice small classrooms.  The teachers are kind, caring, amazing, and awesome.  I spend time playing games and talking with my friends during recess time.

To someone who is thinking of coming here I would say that MCA is an amazing school where the teachers are the best and you would have great friends.  I love MCA a lot.

Olivia

Olivia – 3rd Grade

I came to MCA because it sounded like a magnificent school.  I like all the welcoming people and teachers.  I also like the education.  The teachers are supportive and caring to their students and other teachers.  I get to talk to my friends and also play games with them at recess.  You should come to MCA because the education is amazing, and the teachers are magnificent and so is the principal.  MCA has taught me so many things, and it is just an amazing school and has the best people ever.

Matias – 10th Grade

MCA has helped me reach my goals by letting me get a good education and receive good grades while still letting me live a life outside of school.  The teachers work with me and go out of their way to help and fulfill my academic needs.  At times, my relationship with my teachers seems to be a lot like a friendship.

My relationship with the students of MCA is close and family-like.  The students seem to be there when you're in need of help.  If I can give a message to other students about MCA I would say that MCA truly shows and gives their students a mix of freedom and stress-free living while giving them a good education.

Matias

Cailin

Caitlin – 7th Grade

In our school the students are all very close. When you are in a class of 10 or 11 it is hard not to become friends.  Everyone in the classes are friends and so we can all be ourselves.

I find that my teachers and I have a very strong connection; unlike the connections you have in other schools. I feel that I can be more open with my teachers.  An example is when I need help, I am not shy to ask because I know my teachers well.

For students who are thinking of coming here, well, you should come -- this is the best school I have ever been to!

Nory – 9th Grade

The problem for me (before coming to MCA) was that I didn't have any goals, and my life really needed meticulous guidance.  MCA provided me with a platform to excel and become an amazing student. In school, teachers are meant to be respected; however, at MCA, teachers are also expected to respect the students.  Oftentimes, teachers are close friends and wise counselors.

There are absolutely no limits as to who you're friends with within MCA.  The small yet individually inspiring environment allows for all age groups to be strong friends, from High School to Elementary. MCA is a school for everyone, whether you're a Harvard-bound senior, or a young Elementary student who hates homework, you'll always be welcomed to the family with a huge hug!

Kathinka

Kathinka – 5th Grade

I came to MCA because the school that I went to before had mean people and wasn't very clean. This is the best school ever!  What I like best about MCA is that everybody is nice, I feel like I'm learning a lot, and everything is clean including the bathrooms. 

What I like about my teachers is that they are courageous, like Ms. J because she has to take care of any problems in the elementary and she is funny. They are sweet and very interest-ing, like when Ms. S teaches us about American History.  She makes me want to know more about it!

... I would say to a student who is thinking about coming to MCA is that we are all one big family and we will be your friends.  Even though we are so small, MCA is a big part of my life and heart! From the friends and teachers to the clean toilets, I love this school!

Nia – 9th Grade

I came to MCA because I was having a terrible time at my old school.  My sister was already enrolled at MCA and loved it.  I thought that it wouldn't hurt to test it out and I ended up loving it. MCA has helped me achieve my goals by helping me focus better with smaller classrooms.  The teachers here at MCA are so nice and supportive.  Even if you're not doing so well they are always there to put you back on your feet.  I love all of the teachers so much.

Fitting in at MCA is so easy because everyone is different and unique.  Everyone here gets along well with each other and that makes it a happy place to be.  Even though the school is small you do grow great friendships, maybe closer than you can get with anyone at any other school.MCA is definitely the best school I've been to out of the 5 schools I have attended.

Nia

Isabella

Isabella – 3rd Grade

I like the friendship, kindness and loving hearts of MCA.  I never feel lonely because of that.  I have learned to keep my handwriting neat and I learn a lot in class everyday.

I like that the teachers encourage us to learn and be confident.  I love that they care about you, and that to me is very special. I think MCA is a wonderful school for students who want to learn.

Filippo – 8th Grade

Since I was very new to this country, I could not find myself in a bigger school with a bigger environment, so that is why I liked MCA since the beginning.  When I arrived in the U.S. my biggest goal was to learn English and at the same time make many friends.  MCA helped me achieve these goals,and I am very happy now.

I really love my teachers here at MCA, and I am definitely going to miss them.  I am also happy that I could create some really good relationships with the other students here.

My message to other new students coming to MCA is for them to enjoy as much as they can, because MCA is an extraordinary school that has a beautiful family.  It is indeed an incredible place that I will never forget in my entire life.  I am going to miss it a lot.  I hope the best for each and every student and teacher.

Sydny

Sidny – 7th Grade

I chose to go to MCA because my parents and I thought that my old school was not challenging enough, and they thought I needed to be pushed more.  Also, I have many hobbies, and having little to no homework and being let out of school earlier than most schools, allows me to focus on my activities.  I now have more free time to get better at my art and piano.

All of the teachers and students in MCA are very close.  The small classes allow the students to have a close relationship with their teachers.  At the end of class in English, before lunch, we share something positive with our classmates.  We joke around with each other and have fun, but we get our work done.  The teachers are all very kind and caring.  Everyone gets along and knows each other in such a small school like MCA.

Madison – 8th Grade

We chose MCA because of the welcoming and friendly environment it provided for me.  For the first time in my life I am receiving all A's and B's because of the proper teaching ethic. The relationship with my teachers is very personal and one on one; it has given me the ability to improve in my weakest areas.  My relationship with the other MCA students is very good; we spend a lot of time out of school together. We are all very close. My message to new students:  Always remember to be yourself. We won't judge you.

Michael

Michael – 12th Grade

My high school experience was quite the ride, a mx of so many emotions and life experiences that have formed me into he person I am today. I made memories and friends that I might not remember my whole life but they definitely will affect the person I will become.

The most important message I want to leave behind for other students is to remember that it does not matter what negative things people say about you; use it to your advantage, use it as constructive criticism and become more than what people expect from you. Impress the people that matter and forget about what other people say. I also want to leave them with this quote from Mark Twain, "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did."In the future, I want to make a name for myself in the world. I want a happy and successful life; a life where I do not have to worry about money and I can care for my family and friends instead.

MCA Academy helped me achieve my goals by helping me become a more mature person and become a leader. I want to thank the entire MCA Family. Everyone at MCA helped me one way or another and I am very grateful for that. All the teachers and classmates somehow built the patience to deal with me and give me a chance to show who I am, which taught me to be patient with everyone I meet in return.

Earning my diploma means a lot to me. It means that I am moving on in life and getting one step higher. Compared to a lot of people, I feel lucky to be able to graduate and move on to university. I am being given the chance to have a strong start into life and that is some-thing I will not take for granted.

Conor – 6th Grade

I chose MCA because in my previous school I struggled academi-cally, and sought to find a new school.  My goals were to gain more knowledge and to learn while getting good grades.  MCA has provided all of these, and it's my favorite school ever!  The online curriculum we use, Keystone, is very user friendly and I love it.

All of my teachers are really friendly, and they interact with the students often. My math teacher even offers sailing lessons after school.  Most of the other students here at MCA are nice, friendly, and very welcoming.  In fact, when I was here for the placement test it felt like I was already a part of the family.  At MCA, I think you should just be yourself and let your creativity shine!

Anthony – 3rd Grade

I came to MCA because it is a lovely school.  The best thing about MCA is having the most wonderful teachers.  What I like about my teachers is that they are beautiful.

MCA is the best school in the world and no school can beat that.

Victoria – 6th Grade

The reason why I chose MCA is because everyone is so nice and welcoming! I loved the hospitality from the students, teachers, and staff members.  Also there's no bullying and the curriculum is good because you learn very important things!  MCA has helped me so much with reaching my academic goals.

My relationship with my teachers if very good!  In this school my teachers are my friends.  All of the students are so nice and I love that.  This school is the best and there is no better school!  It lets you learn and live your life without stress!

Gabriele

Gabrielle – 12th Grade

I would define my four high school years as being amazing memories but also very challenging. I met amazing people from everywhere I went, I made amazing accomplishments, and I also stumbled across people who ended up being my best friends and I am very thankful for that. Even though it was very challenging with my education, I was able to overcome that by seeing the positive outcome of things instead of thinking back to the negatives! In the end, everything got better.

If I could leave a message behind to other students I would tell them that I hope their time in high school is amazing and that they are happy doing what they love when they grow up. I also would recommend they start preparing for college when starting high school, by keeping your grades up, doing activities and helping your community, practicing your test taking skills, and venturing out by taking part in different sports. By the time you get to senior year, it will be too much to do all of that in one year, so I recommend you start earlier.

My plan for the future is to go to my dream school, Marist College, and take many classes to see what I would like to do as my major. Once I find what I want to do, I will study and graduate with a strong GPA. After that I just want to be with my family and do what I love. Finally, I would love to travel the world in order to gain many wonderful experi-ences and make many memories.

The reason I chose MCA is because it is the only school where the teachers and everyone who works there truly care for you and want you to succeed. That is something I needed because throughout the previous schools I attended during high school, all the teachers cared about was that you had an “A” on your paper but they did not care if you actually learned or were even a happy individual.  At MCA, it is different.  MCA is my family and they will always care for me and push me to be the best I can be with my abilities. MCA helped me achieve my goals such as getting good grades, being able to have more opportunities that other schools would not have provided, meeting amazing people, and being happy.

If I could thank someone who has helped me throughout my journey to graduation it is definitely the teachers and Ms. Acosta at MCA. They have helped me throughout everything, cared for me, and motivated me to be the best that I can be. I would also thank my family for always being there for me and caring for me even though they have been far.

Earning my diploma is such a big accomplishment because these years have been so difficult and stressful. It feels amazing to just be so close to my goal of graduating. Graduating is such a big goal of mine because without it, I cannot study my passion so I am very excited! It is also sad because I am ending a chapter but I am starting a new one and that makes me very excited.

Nick – 12th Grade

Fortunately, my high school experience at MCA will always be one to remember, especially because of the wonderful people that I surrounded myself with everyday. Along the way, I have developed friendships with many of my peers, which I value deeply in my life. In addition, I have created a lot of fond memories with people who I will never forget about, specifically those who have created a positive influence on my life. Even though at times, mediating between maintaining quality work and having a social life is stress-ful, I have learned to overcome such challenges and move forward. Overall, these types of experiences have helped makemy time at MCA unforgettable.

For other students who are looking to spend their whole time in high school at MCA, I encourage them to focus more on their work during school hours an then socialize with their friends after school.

First, this will help demonstrate to the teachers that you have a great work ethic and that you are determined to get the good grades that you deserve. Second, it will influence your peers to work harder, which will then create a wonderful learning environment for everyone in the classroom.

Another message I would like to leave for other students is that yo do not have to be friends with every single person in the school; however, you MUST be civil with them and show them respect, even if you think they are completely ridiculous.

So many ideas and interests come to mind when I think about my future. However, for right now I am focused on going to a school that teaches you the different aspects of the hospitality industry. Specifically learning about hotels is something that currently interests me, but I also want to figure out a way where I can incorporate real estate, hotel development, design, as well as hospitality into my career. Hopefully, my options will be endless!

I chose MCA, specifically to learn in a quiet environment, with very few other students so I could focus as much as possible. I find it difficult for me to learn in a busy environment because it hinders the process of completing my work on time. In addition, MCA allows me the free time to focus on my passions outside of school while I am given the privilege to work on my classes during school hours, with very minimal homework.

Personally, I would like to thank all of my amazing teachers who have helped me along the way throughout my high school experi-ence. Your desire to help me reach my full potential has created such a positive impact on my life that I could only gain from and never lose. You're involvement in helping every single student individually has inspired me deeply, which is why I would like to give recognition to each of you.

Lastly, I would also like to thank my principal, Ms. Acosta for showing tremendous passion in helping make the school even better the next year round. I thank you all for your dedication and hard work, as it is deeply appreciated by me.

Earning my diploma means that I can finally start a new and exciting chapter in my life, where it allows me to open the doors of many opportunities for my future. Earning my diploma also signifies that I was able to accomplish four arduous years of intense learning that have helped me develop as a person. Overall, I am very thrilled for attaining such an incredible accomplishment and I only hope that the best is yet to come.

Francesca – 7th Grade

I chose MCA because I like the stunts here and there are a limited amount of students in each class so everyone gets a chance to learn. MCA's teachers are very kind and push me to be better. My teachers are extremely kind, generous, and honest. All of my teachers are happy to teach and be a part of the MCA Family. I love MCA teachers, students, and assistants. I hope you come to MCA next year.

Nathalia – 12th Grade

I chose MCA because, when I came to visit the school, the students and the teachers were so nice to me. I felt a part of it already and this was very important to me because I was just moving from Brazil and I wanted to make new friends. Aside from the nice and kind students and teachers, the academic courses MCA offers are amazing. The teachers help you go through the year without struggles and they maintain a good relationship with the students. This motivates me the most to achieve my goals because I know I have their support all of the time. Unlike all the other schools I have been to, here at MCA, my relationship with my teachers is really similar to the ones I have with my friends. Of course, I treat them with the respect a teacher deserves, but that idea of a teacher being mean and a person who is always mad is gone here.

Since MCA is a small school, my relationship with other students is much better than the ones I had in my previous schools. Here we are like a family. MCA is for those who are looking for another family besides the one you already have at home, and for those who have "talents beyond school."

Raeuna
Raeua – 5th Grade

I came to MCA because my dad's friends said that MCA would help my education when I grow up, and that it would help me with some subjects that I need help with.

What I like about MCA are the teachers. They explain the lessons very clearly. You never have to worry if you don’t understand a lesson because the teachers will take the time to explain what you don’t understand. My teachers always make me laugh. They are very generous and kind.

I also love all the students. They are super nice and caring. The way I spend my free time during the break at MCA is by talking with my friends or reading a book I enjoy. What I would say to a student who's thinking of coming to MCA is they should come because the school is really fun, all the kids and teachers are really nice. You'll make friends right away.

Valeria – 8th Grade

I chose MCA for the positive environment that envelops each student. The small population of students helps you learn individually about your own struggles so I am able to focus on building myself rather than going through the dramatic middle school years that are common at other larger schools. Coming to MCA I had no true goals but I notice that I have grown to become independent and learn more about who I am. I have become a leader when I used to be a follower.

The teachers and students at MCA are AMAZING! I find every teacher passionate and absolutely outstanding. They connect to us and provide a nurturing yet  strong appearance. The students gather together at recess, lunch, school-wide meetings, and at monthly Student Council activities. I find myself interacting with kids in 1st through 12th grade; which is such a blessing. Everyone is kind and supportive; it's not a school filled with strangers, it's a family.

My advice for someone coming to MCA is to keep an open mind. There are so many wonderful traits and qualities that you acquire that are not experienced in other schools. Follow the rules and you will have fun. MCA is super fun! There is recess and high school students can go off-campus for recess and lunch.

I also want to say that our principal, Ms. Acosta, is the best and probably most memorable principal I will  have. She is devoted, generous, and an outstanding lady. I appreciate Ms. A sooo much; she has an endless love for everyone and her presence brings a positive aura to every situation. I love MCA!

I chose MCA because of the smaller class sizes, more one-on-one with teachers, and the family aspect MCA brings to its students. MCA played a massive role in helping get into college. Thanks to their help with the college application process and teachers like Ms. Perez, I was accepted into the college that was my top choice. I feel the teachers at MCA strive for more than just academic relationships with their students. MCA teacher are more than just teachers, they are friends helping you succeed in whatever way they can. MCA students are different that other students. We are family and not just familiar. We learn and grow together. My advice to other students coming to MCA is do not take the amount of help offered at MCA for granted. MCA is what you make of it. Keep your head held high and your heart open. Be a contributing member of the MCA Family.

I came to MCA because my other school had mean teachers and lots of homework. Some kids were bullies to my friends and to me. I didn't like that. The best thing about MCA is that the teachers are really nice and you do not have to wear a uniform so you can have your own style. I like the teachers because they are nice and fair. They are funny and do experiments. Sometimes, if you are lucky, they will give you a free hug. Who am I kidding; they do that all the time! I also like the students at MCA. I like to spend time with them at recess and lunch. I also like going with them to the local library every Wednesday and to the park every other Friday. MCA is the best school I've ever been to in my life!

I came to MCA because I was having a hard time at my other school. What I like best about MCA is that everybody understands each other and when someone is feeling bad the children and teachers are always there to help. I like that how the teachers understand each student and make work very fun and exciting. They also know that each student is very smart in their on way.

How I spend time with my friends at MCA is usually by playing with them and hearing what's new, but if something is wrong I like to talk to them until they come out of it. You can wear what you like and there are sometimes fun activities that the Student Council puts together for us. We give donations to children that have problems to make them well!!!

I chose MCA for various reasons. The reason that really impacted my life is how open and caring the teachers and students are. Right when I walked in I knew MCA was a nice heartwarming school.
My goal as a kid was to get good grades, understand the lessons, and improve my writing. Here at MCA, I was able to understand everything the teachers taught me and get good grades. I was so happy to hear a lot of amazing things and comments about my writing too!

My teachers are like my best friends! I feel comfortable talking about anything I don't understand. My teachers always make me happy just to see them when I rise and shine in the morning. I am so happy and grateful for my amazing teachers who spend all day just working their hardest to teach children. They are my heroes! I have a very chose relationship with my classmates also. They are like my family.

Some advice or message for other students is don't be afraid to be who you are. MCA is a school where people can have the freedom to be whoever you want to be. Something else about MCA is
that they will allow you to play fun games outside, so please consider us and enjoy your day!

I chose MCA because it was close to home and was a very small school. I liked the fact that I received a lot of attention from the teachers and I could easily practice music after school and also have time for sailing.

MCA has allowed me to grow and mature as an individual. This has helped me in all aspects of life so far. Attending MCA has allowed me to dedicate more time to sailing and in doing so I have improved immensely.

I have a very strong relationship with all of my teachers. I feel safe and trust all of them. This allows me to confide my feelings and secrets to them.  MCA has become my family over the years. I can barely imagine my life without my friends who also attend MCA.

MCA is a school that can help people achieve their goals
or dreams. This school has helped me thrive and learn about the importance of leadership. The people of MCA have good hearts, so you should never try and take advantage of that. MCA is an amazing school that has become my second home. It has a welcoming
environment that anyone can adapt to easily.
