What a demeaning response! To tell a former student they are "smoking something" because they had a bad experience with the school! That response in itself should show what type of environment this school is: Like it or else! Can anyone say: FEAR BASED METHODS!

Horrible experience. I had 2 of my children enrolled in the school and they shoved their old fashioned, close-minded beliefs down their throats. After extensive research, I have discovered that GACS or "Happy Hill" is NOT ACCREDITED. When I transferred my children to a different school I was shocked. PLEASE DO NOT allow your children to attend this horrific school.

I find the post on July 2014 very odd. Especially since two graduates fron 2013-2014 are currently being PAID by a local university to attend. They also were dual enrolled and graduated with their AA degree at the same time they graduated high school. ANOTHER graduate is attending a very prestigious Conservatory with a full scholarship. ANOTHER is in pre-med at USF. ANOTHER has already completed University and is currently an honors teacher with Hillsborough County Schools. I could go on and on but is it REALLY necessary?? Need I say more?? Seems like the "former graduate" is smoking something!

As a former graduate of Gospel Assembly Christian school, I cannot begin to express my disappointment when the admissions department at USF informed me that they (gacs) were NOT ACCREDITED!!! That's right, I'm going to need to get a GED if I wish to pursue a degree with ANY major university. It's almost like I never even went to HS.....such a SHAME. ***PARENTS, DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE ***

I was a parent of 3 attending this school. Its a good school but they dont let your child in if they are 1min late they dont understand since most of the teachers live on the school grounds. They dont have a good playground for the children and they dont play any sports. If you like your child to participate in activities dont count on this school take them to Zephyrhills Christian academy this is a great school and its not that far from Dade city.

Great school the Teacher Miss Dottie Porter is the best. She realy cares about the students and shows them True Love. Great school the education received there is far better than Public School Tim Quinn is also in touch with the needs of the children. I wish there were more schools like this

I would rate it excellent on academics, very strong in math and reading. Scripture studies and the arts (music) are also excellent. Only short comings is total lack athletics. Overall extremely happy with child's preformence academically and his scripture knowledge.

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.
