Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Families can opt for their secondary age children to participate in a Dual Diploma program, permitting students to take virtual classes and graduate with a diploma from a school in the USA in addition to the MCS diploma.

Teaching approach of the school

Monterrico Christian School exists to glorify God by offering a solid education in all subject areas with a biblical worldview. The Bible is key; the word of God is profitable for teaching, discipline, correction and instruction in righteousness. Our five core principles are: loving God and all others, respect for authority, responsibility, integrity, and a thirst for knowledge. MCS believes that following Christian principles brings the most satisfaction and true success in life, so we cooperate with the parents to help the students develop as people of integrity, capable of facing the challenges of today and the future. A variety of methodologies are used in classes, as there is no one perfect method.
