In 1998, the founder's of Moscow Charter School turned their vision in to reality and created the very first charter school in the state of Idaho! Moscow Charter School students attended MCS for the first time in the Fall of 1998. The school has come a long way in the span of the last 20 years and has evolved from taking education "in a new direction" to, with this mindset, becoming a school that focuses around providing a balanced STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) education. We started out in a church basement, and have continued to grow...MCS is now on the brink of expanding our current location which will incorporate a new permanent Middle School building! So many exciting things have happened in the last 20 years and we look forward to celebrating our 20th anniversary year and the success of our school with all of our students, staff and the community!
"MCS feels like a community of people who care about each other. My daughter has made good friends, has learned a great deal and gained confidence, has participated in one of the after school clubs, and her teacher Mrs. Rainer, has been kind, nurturing, and positive. I feel like my daughter is safe at MCS."
"I love the opportunities the school gives our teachers to find the best methods for teaching students. They have the freedom to choose how and what they teach to the student on an individualized basis. In other words we don't hold our children back if they have already mastered a skill simply because of the grade they are in!"
"The school harbors the importance of learning and does it in a fun and exciting way. We also love the teachers and staff. We feel very comfortable approaching everyone and feel that the teachers and staff care for my child."
"I love the assortment of opportunities for the kids to learn both in school and outside of class time. I also love the fact that each faculty member really seems to take care of all of the kids regardless if they are in their class or not and many make it a point to say hello outside of the school when they see them in public."
