They don't even know idiomatic phrases, practice doesn't make permanent! The idiom is "practice makes perfect"!!!

GBCS is a wonderful school! My children have done very well there. The teachers are great about communicating with me about my children's progress, and they go out of their way to help the students succeed.

It is a great place for children where they not only learn acedemics but from the bible
—Submitted by a student


Posted September 17, 2003

GBCS has been a true blessing to my children. The class sizes are small and the teachers devote themselves 100% to educating the students. The King James Bible is the primary teaching, with academics based on biblical principles. (The Abeka curriculum is used.) Discipline is consistent, and the entire staff is involved with teaching, encouraging, and strengthening the student's lives and relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ. Parental involvement is strong and the overall attitude of the students is evident in the obvious respect for staff, students, and the school property. My children love going to school every day and have both scored higher than the average student on all state tests taken. The tuition is reasonable and worth every penny. Before and after school care is available for a small fee, and security is enforced when releasing students to adults when leaving school.

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.

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 »
