My daughter has attended this school for only the 6th grade and it is horrible. She came into the school in honors placement and has since not done anything in math or science that is not a review of previous years.

The band, spanish, language arts and social studies teachers are nurturing and challenging my daughter but with math and science being such important subjects and with the lack of communication from those teachers, it is a very bad choice to leave a child with this school. They now have a new principal so maybe he can turn things around. Read less

Grace Lutheran School has been an excellent choice for my son. Grace is the type of school that as a parent your opinion and participation counts. For the students the learning never ends because they are exposed to so many experiences. Opportunities include music, art, athletics, spanish, rocket

They read to each other, mentor and have fun projects which makes your child know others in the grades above them and lets them be excited to interact with older students. Lastly, Grace assists with building character. Manners, faith, respect...these are the lessons that are the true foundation that will lead to our child's success and happiness in life. Come see it for yourself! Read less

Grace is a really great school. I'm in eighth grade and I've been there for seven years. I have lots of close friends that I've known for a long time. Our teachers are really great- Mrs. Rand is always willing to go the extra mile to get the concept of algebra through your head. Mr. Wells makes science

Mr. Meissner is easy going and always makes language a lot easier to understand. Mr. Cox knows always has a new game for us to play... and always has more laps for us to run... but he makes it really fun. Mrs. Tipett is the most multi-talented person I've ever seen- she teaches math, drama, and choir. Read less
