This has been our motto from day one. With CARE and COMPASSION while following Jesus, our goal is to prepare students for the NOW and the NEXT. Our alumni have entered many careers, colleges, and full-time ministry ready to step in to whatever God's plans are for their lives with passion and excellence.
"MZ WAYS are our five statements of culture and expectations for our community based upon aspirational values developed by our school board. We live, move, and breathe these statements as a part of who we are and how we interact with God and each other. It is through MZ WAYS that we set goals and measure our growth as students, teachers, and followers of Jesus. Yearly, every student and family who becomes a part of the Mount Zion community of learners are required to sign a commitment to uphold these values.
We acknowledge that the industrial schooling model of the last century will not serve students well in this century. At Mount Zion teachers don’t exist to be a knowledge source, they are leaders of learners and passionate learners themselves. Our goal is independent learners who are spiritually, academically, physically, and emotionally prepared for an unknown future.
Part of learning and growing is about facing obstacles, problem solving, and being gritty enough to keep trying--even when things are difficult. At Mount Zion Christian Schools we provide opportunities for student to face challenges, whether that's while climbing tress on the playground, or building paper rollercoasters in 4th grade science. Collaborating with peers and learning through mistake-making are so important, and we are intentional as we challenge students so that they are ready and prepared for each developmental stage.
"You have made a profound impact to the heart and soul of my daughter Sarah in the time she has been there. While Mount Zion functions as a whole symbiotic entity, each person there contributing his or her best self, you are being singled out because of the joy, gravity, purpose and love with which you have touched my daughter. She has talked of lessons learned from her exposure to how you live your life.""
"Last night we were invited to an awards banquet at UNH for an academic scholarship that our daughter received. We did not know much about the award, but we knew she was invited to apply and had won the scholarship. As we sat through the awards banquet and heard how prestigious and how few students receive it, we couldn't help but thank God for MZCS' role in her academics. You have been part of educating her and pushing her to excellence. You have given her opportunities she never would have had at home or in public school. You have been an important part of her receiving this scholarship and we thank you. The scholarship alone makes the tuition we paid to MZCS money well spent. So, from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you and praise GOD for you at MZCS."
"Our child is being taught both Christian values and the reality of the gifts of God and Life - the growth we see in our son attending Mount Zion is amazing!"
