What Parents Say

As a mother with limited income, I wanted the best education I could give my son. M.O.S.T. has been my saving grace and has helped me give my son a safe and quality education. "J" is now in 9th grade and is soaring in academics and sports. Thank you M.O.S.T., for your support... and the staff is amazing!

M.O.S.T. has been a blessing to my children and myself. They are in an awesome learning environment. I'm a single mother of 3 wanting more for my children than what I had coming up as a child. I've been able to send my children to private school from ages 4 tot 17. Receiving M.O.S.T. scholarships has been less stressful for me figuring out how to pay tuition. I'm just thankful my children are recipients.
