At Mustard Seed School I have witnessed my son flourish. He’s transitioned from a distracted and disorganized student to a lover of education and the community. We attribute our son’s confidence, excitement for school projects, love of music, and desire to help others to the guidance and efforts of his teachers and supporting staff at MSS. The mission of MSS has laid the foundation for Michael, as he was accepted into every high school he applied to, loves to sing, and volunteers at an assisted living facility in Jersey City. We are so happy that not only does he want to achieve but he is conscious of the needs of others and has a desire to help.

We have been fortunate to be involved with Mustard Seed School for 13 years now. My children leave for school each day with smiles on their faces and they come home happy, too. In between they’ve learned about academics and arts, faith and friendship, and individuality and teamwork. I can’t imagine a better place for my children to spend their days. My oldest is in high school now and his experience at Mustard Seed is paying dividends. Not only is he excelling academically at a nationally-ranked high school, we consistently receive positive feedback about his work ethic, his willingness to help others, and his ability to articulate ideas to peers and teachers. Mustard Seed has set him on a path to be a successful and giving as an adult. We are grateful.

I’m a public school teacher with a Master’s degree and nine years of experience in grades K-5. We moved to NJ just to be a part of this special community. I love how MSS nurtures the whole child through academics, the arts, worship, and service projects. It is indeed a very unique place!
