My daughter and son are attending this school. I am so happy with the education they are receiving at GHA. My children will not be able to get this kind of attention anywhere else around here. They are enjoying the academic acceleration at their own pace without stress. I am recommending this school to any parent that are looking for a great education and development for your child.

Old fashioned country school promoting values and personal responsibility. Children work at their own pace, and are promoted when they are able, not just because of a calendar. Our children have attended for the last five years, and will continue until their graduation.

This is our second year there and the teachers really believe that each student's potential is limitless and everything at the school reflects it.

This is a wonderful little school. There are 4 classes, or 'forms' as they are called at the school. Form A: preK-2nd, Form B: 2nd-4th, Form C: 4th-6th, and Form D: 6th-8th. Class sizes are small and don't exceed 12 students. What I particularly like about the school is that it offers grade-level placement per subject. For example, you can have a 1st grade child working on 3rd grade math and 2nd grade phonics. Each child works at their own level, much like in homeschooling. Music, art, sign language and PE are offered. Extended care in the morning is free, and is available after school for a nominal charge. My children have been here 4 years, and I have a hard time getting them to leave school each day. They love the school and farm-like schoolground, complete with chickens and goats. A very unique school that is a good value.

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 »
