Mrs. Marshall is wonderful! She is truly a teacher and cares about the students. She leads the homework club after school and helps the students with any subject. She is an amazing teacher!

While no school is perfect, GCP does a great job helping the students learn and become accountable. The principle is quick to respond and resolve any problems or concerns that may arise. The partnerships they have with MCC and EVIT are invaluable for the students. Mrs. Marshall is wonderful! She is truly a teacher and cares about the students. The small class size is great and the administration team knows all of the students. My kids did complain about the small school size because all of the teachers knew their "business" and it irritated them; but as I told them, I would rather have them in a small school where they were known than in a large school where they would become lost in the shuffle. If you are looking for a learning environment for your child, look no further than GCP.

Love the small class sizes and focus on academics! The teachers are all highly trained and the administrators are quick to respond to questions or concerns. Our daughter is doing very well at this school.

Develops grit: Agree

GCP, by promoting its Early College and Early Career Programs through Mesa Community College and EVIT, develops the attributes of persistence, grit and determination because students have to meet criteria such as grade average and solid citizenship in order to be considered for either of those programs.

Our teachers are all highly qualified in their fields and are willing to meet with students and their families either before or after school to address any needs that may arise. GCP has been rated a B school two of the last three years (just short of an A both times) so yes, our teachers are very effective.

Amount of homework: Just right

GCP has a block schedule which enables students to pace their work load. For example, Assignments given on Monday are due on Wednesday and assignments on Tuesday are due on Thursday.

It is part of the school's mission to create active positive citizens. Furthermore, another reason is the school, through its literature choices, strives to convey vital character lessons.

The school balances homework with other aspects of life. There is homework 4-5 nights a week and projects are balanced with less homework.
