OUR Elementary PHILOSOPHY

Moline Christian School strives to meet the needs of our students with our classroom teachers, aides, and parent volunteers all serving, working, and building God's Kingdom Together.  We believe that by constructing a solid framework of academic excellence and giving our students the tools to be successful in and out of the classroom, we can prepare them for middle school, high school, college, and beyond as they seek to fulfill God's calling in their lives.
