Wonderful school!! This a school that truly believes in the word family. The teachers at this school are always encouraging the students to do well not only academically but spiritually. I would recommend this school to any one looking for a loving, nurturing, and safe place for their kids.

I loved the daycare but since they have the new principal in place it is horrible. He has a bad attitude and simple calls you if a 4 year old little girl is having a bad day and demands you come get your child. The teachers are hateful as well. This school is losing students by the day because of the new administration. No Christian practices here. Just mean and spiteful at this school. I will be removing my child post haste. It won't be long before they have no jobs there because the new principal has run off all they paying customers.

Horrible teachers. No regulation or discipline. Teachers lack motivation, teaching skills, and pleasant personalities. There are only a handful of good qualified teachers at this school.

My grandchildren started this school this year. They love it! They have learned so much in such a short time and have grown academically by leaps and bounds! The teachers are very hands on with the children and identify each child's individual needs and areas that need more in depth focus while guiding and growing their strengths. I'm continually impressed with this school.

This 07-08 year is my son's first official year at the school, although he has attended day care since 05. The daycare is great and so is the school! The atmosphere is friendly yet professional. As a kindergartener, my son is already writing, reading, spelling and performing basic addition. I'm impressed with the school overall.

Great academics! And I love the small teacher to student ratio! The school is like a family!

Not only does my son go to school at GSBS, but he has gone to daycare there since he was 15 mths old and he is now 7! Not only that, but we have also joined the church which is wonderful as well. I love the school, daycare and church so much that I am even going to teach there this coming 06-07 school year. I can't wait!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
