Gospel Light Christian School is amazing! I have three children that have been attending for the past ten years. I am very involved with the school. As a parent, I love the freedom of getting to participate with all of my children's activities. I would recommend this school to EVERYONE! Children gain a closer relationship with God while getting an education.

I love this school. My daughter has gone there for the last two years and daycare prior to that. In this economy it gets a little tough to pay for, but the end result has been worth it. I worry that she will fall behind public school standards, but recently had her tested with public school reading, writing, and math experts and as of the end of kindergarten she is a little above average in comparison to public school standards. The bonus is that she is learning about God and bible, she gets to pray without fear of what the others around her think. The cost is worth it for that alone.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
