My daughter and I have been so BLESSED by this school! The teachers/faculty here genuinely care about my daughter and our family. They go "above and beyond the call," in my opinion. Medinah Christian School has been in the community for 40 + years and truly offers "A Quality Education, in a Christian

We love the fact that the classes are smaller in size, as the individual attention that comes as a result of this, is priceless! Over and above academics, my daughter is learning so much MORE than she would at a public school-- like politeness, honesty, good deeds, Christian values, and a place where God and His Word are truly honored (and can be freely spoken about, I might add), which are important to our family. When she comes home from school, singing about God, Jesus, Moses, Noah, etc., I cannot TELL YOU just how it blesses my soul! Medinah Christian School also offers BOTH before and after care programs, which makes it easier for working parents with difficult schedules. Their tuition is also very reasonable, when compared others in the area. God is blessing this school! Read less
