Partnership with Parents

Christian parents understand that their children are gifts from a generous and creative, loving, heavenly Father. They seek to bring up their children to know and love this loving Father and his Son, Jesus Christ. The Scriptures clearly teach that the chief responsibility for the nurture and guidance of children belongs to their parents. Because the education of children has such a significant shaping role, parental responsibility must play a part in that education. This responsibility cannot be hand-balled to governments, businesses, or even churches for that matter. It belongs primarily with parents. That does not mean parents will not partner with others who can help them, but it does mean parents set the direction and stay involved. This is why MECS emphasises the vital role parents play. The school’s job is to empower parents in their God-given responsibility.
