Mt. Pisgah Weekday School
Mt. Pisgah Weekday School would like to invite new families to tour the school, see exciting classes and activities in action, and meet the dedicated teachers and staff. This faith-based preschool has been committed to educating children for over 40 years and continues to provide a nurturing and loving environment that sparks imagination and ignites early learning. The teachers at Mt. Pisgah Weekday School are creative, engaging, and dedicated. In a recent school-wide survey, all parents reported they were pleased with their child’s current teachers and almost all gave the highest rating of “extremely pleased.”
“I could not imagine a more loving environment than Mt. Pisgah Weekday School. I am confident that my children are not only being nurtured educationally but they are also being taught about God’s love and that will stay with them forever.” – Parent Testimonial
