What a breath of fresh air! Government schools are falling under the heavy hand of "common core" standards, effectively dumbing down the curriculum.. again. Comparing the curriculum, high student expectations, and loving environment offered at Grace to the government school alternative is like day
... Read more and night. Grace exceeds the government schools in every meaningful measure: Academics, student behavior, small class sizes, and personalized help, when needed. For those who value the reinforcement of Christian values- including respect, love, and personal responsibility in all things, Grace Christian is an excellent choice. Teachers are all Christians and excellent role models for the students. I've never heard profane or vulgar language from any parent or teacher... contrary to what is tolerated at many government schools. Read less

My experience with Grace Christian School has only consisted of the last two years. While there is no perfect school / church on this earth, what I have witnessed is a very strong family atmosphere. When I say "Family" I mean Godly Christian family the way it is supposed to be. I see a very strong

I have seen a freedom to be able to address any issues with leadership in a loving way, and that issues get dealt with promptly. The children all act like they enjoy being a part of Grace Christian School. The staff act like they sincerely enjoy coming to work. I greatly appreciate that Grace could raise their tuition to accommodate economic fluctuation, yet they hold firm as the lowest private school in the state. My children love their experience with Grace as well and I would recommend Grace to anyone and everyone. Thank you Grace Christian School for all you do. Read less

I have two grandchildren attending.. A wonderful experience for them! The 2nd grader tested out at at 5th+ grade level on the mandated tests..

The best decision I ever made was removing her from this school. Every teacher at her Daycare center has noticed a marked huge improvement in her happiness. They can't believe the difference.

Unfortunately, this school struggles with communication and openness. It is a shame that they resist positive change and don't add parents to the board instead of the same few MEN who are on it.

I found this to be an extremely judgemental environment. I didn't feel encouraged to express concerns with the staff. It appears that unless you're part of the family (there are several family members) that you aren't encouraged to give your opinion. My family personally felt very judged. We didn't

I am very happy I graduated from Grace Christian School. I had been going to Grace since the 8th grade. Grace Christian School prepared me for my future education. I had a great learning experience that taught me what I needed to know. The material is Christian based and educational. The teachers are

At Grace your child will acquire new friends which will stick with him through out the years. I am still in contact with my friends from Grace. When I have children, I will bring them to Grace Christian School for their education and learning experience. I recommend that others put their children first and bring them to Grace! They will have the best educational experience, acquire new friends, and be prepared for their future growth of knowledge and education. Read less

Poor leadership skills, the school board is ran by friends and family who are afraid of any changes to make "THEIR" school a better place for children. Poor parent, teacher involvement / participation. There are a few wonderful teachers but the rest of them, I am not sure what rock they turned over

It is sad to say at one time the school used to be a great place for children, that time has passed and it is time to move on. I would not recommend this school for my children. This is one school who does not lead by example anymore. Good luck Grace. Read less
