My daughter is in Kindergarten at GLS. This school is fantastic. The teachers are helpful and concerned. The principle is involved. I had my daughter in Pre-K 4 at the Early Learning Center at Grace. I almost took her out of Grace because the Pre-K 4 teacher was not the best. She was not concerned with

She does not hold a college degree but felt that my daughter would not be able to keep up in Kindergarten, yet my daughter is doing fine in Kindergarten there at Grace while some of the other students from her class are not doing as well - and she did not tell their parents that the should not move to Kindergarten. I don't want to say the teacher's name on here, you will know her if you have her. Regardless of the experience in Pre-K 4, I am really glad we kept our daughter in Grace. We had the opportunity to put her in another private school in the area and decided not to, and that was the right decision. The Principal is excellent and so are the Kindergarten teachers. Just put your children in Pre school somewhere else. Read less

Teachers are amazing. High expectations with lots of love. Don't enroll if you are not willing to have your child learn to put forth a strong effort.

Grace is a top notch school, a rare jewel in the gem state. Not only do they have progressive technologies, they start Spanish in the first grade. My daughter started attending in their Pre-K3 program and now is going into fifth grade. I have heard the standard complaints people make about any school,

The teachers are paid less than their public school counterparts, the administration of the school is always streamlining efficiency to maximize the value of each tuition dollar. I considered a move to Washington and found a similar school had a tuition rate nearly 5 times that of Grace. This is the perfect place to establish the life long foundation of learning. Read less

We have 2 kids attending Grace, it's expensive but it's worth it. We could have more house and newer cars, but their education is more important to us than having nice stuff. Both kids are excelling academically and have great study habits, something they didn't get from me. Grace can seem a little strict,

Kids from all religions and backgrounds go to Grace, because it's a superior school with a healthy environment. Sending our kids to Grace has been like buying an insurance policy insuring their academic success and future. We are confident that our kids will excel in high school, college and in life, because of the foundations they've received at Grace. What's more important than that? Read less

This is a great school academically and spiritually. But I also agree with the tuition being more than double when you go from prek to kindergarten. Being a middle class citizen with only 2 kids would be hard to fiancially be able to do it without some help. We figure it will cost us almost 1,000.00
