We strive to live out our vision statement in all areas, including pedagogy, student discipline and discipleship, and improving student learning.

Over 45 churches are represented in Maple Ridge Christian School, a non-denominational Christian school governed by a board of directors representing MRCS’s membership. MRCS was founded on a Reformed world and life view of Christianity and it is that distinct perspective that shapes our vision.

The position will involve 40-60% of administrative time and 40-60% of teaching time depending on the successful candidate. The teaching responsibilities would most likely be at the K-7 level.
