High school Administration needs to be changed. The principal is only concerned about making himself look good and the same goes for the Dean of Students. They really don't give a rip about the students at all and will flat out say whatever to try to shut up any parent who is dissatisfied with the school.

Our son attended the school for 5 years and it was a wonderful experience overall. The best part was the small class sizes.

The principal sets a professional yet child focused tone that allows teachers to lead students in a relational way that truly develops a love for people and for Christ.

My son has thrived at Grace Brethren Elementary School. His teachers have been very loving, organized, extremely competent, and available. He is currently going into 1st grade and has been with this school since he was in preschool. We anticipate a long and successful relationship through his senior year.

Both of my children have grown tremendously during their years at Grace Brethren, academically, emotionally, and spiritually. The teachers and administration have a heart for the students and their families, sharing the love of God, while at the same time seeking academic excellence.

The Principle at Grace Brethren has to keep his large school running at the same time as managing and assisting Parents. The school is operated and managed well.

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.
