  • Math Civics And Sciences Cs reviewed by a parent

    The teachers are not certified/qualified teachers. Some of them are former students. Others may have attended college but no degree obtained. Therefore, they can not teach anywhere else. And the computer science teacher went to MCSCS to service a computer and was offered a job (suspect?) No gym, no recess One good thing I can truly say about MCSCS, my children know the names of every president in American History.

Did you know that Dr. Barnes sometimes answered visitation requests to the Foundation by signing Fidèle’s name in his place?
