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.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a teacher
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: Agree


- a teacher
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.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a teacher
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.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
There is an extremely high level of experience and education at GCP. The teachers work hard and have high expectations for each student.

Amount of homework: Agree


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

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a parent
The teachers at GCP get to know their students and give them the advice they would give their own children.

Great little school. That being said, it doesn't have all the things big schools have. What it does have is great teachers, a good curriculum, a family atmosphere where people know about each other and care about each other. GCP offers dual enrollment at the local community college as well as a fabulous range of classes at East Valley Institute of Technology. There is always someone to help at GCP and if they can't help, they will find someone who can. I recommend this fine school.

GCP isn't perfect, but no school can be all things to all students. It happens to be a great fit for my son, who has attended GCP for the past 4 years and will return next year. It's a small school, so there are pros and cons. No, it doesn't offer state of the art technology access, but the small class & campus sizes mean my son gets focused attention from his instructors and can't "fall through the cracks" like he would at larger public schools. I'm impressed so far by the strength of the curriculum and happy with the teachers' methodology. He's doing fine as far as standardized tests and grades are concerned, and we're looking forward to making the most of the opportunities offered by GCP's partnerships with MCC and EVIT to earn college credit. He also receives quality IEP support.
