‘And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this, ‘you shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.

Mark 12: 30-31

MPCS makes its students a priority. Every student, no matter his or her academic, athletic, or artistic aspirations, is important. I can promise you that you’ll never be a nameless face while on the MPCS campus – a campus that is chock-full of smiling faces and teachers who genuinely care and will go out of their way to help you inside and outside of the classroom.
