The teachers are extremely caring and treat kids like family. My child is 3 years old and is already beyond the vpk educational standard. I would not trust any other facility to care for a baby like they care for the babies here. A place that teaches Christian values. My childs behavior is exceptional and I give this school a ton of credit for it. Small class settings. One on one time with the children for education. I can not say enough about it.

Gulf Coast Christian is a great school! We love it! I can't speak for the baby room (my child did not attend in the baby room) but the preschool teacher and 1st -8th grade teachers are great! I love the older style classrooms with all grades in one room. I guess it isn't for everyone but we like it. Every student gets one on one time with the teacher because of small class size. One thing I have noticed is that the teacher remains calm! Even with trying teenagers I never hear of her loosing control. I wish more people that worked with kids could be this way. Talking to a child instead of "at" them! She is determined to educate kids in the bible as well as the school curriculum. For Christian parents this is a priority! Another parents mentioned that they just want the money. I just don't see that! The tuition is cheaper than any other private school I have seen and is able to provide a family like atmosphere for the students. I am sure they run on a tight budget with the small size. My child truly loves his teacher and we are so happy to have him here.

My child attended this school since preschool. Once my child went to 1st grade it was a complete disaster! you had one person trying to teach 8 class grades in 1 room. They seemed to care more about money than the students needs. Time that my child went there it was 3 teachers for the entire school. 1 being for preschool the other for Kindergarten. Also if there was an issue with the "teacher" there is no higher person to go to because she is the Principal as well. Waste of money, my child was removed and when tested in Public school was behind. I have records form Gulf Coast stating she was an honor roll student which was a lie. They tell you what you want to hear to keep the money coming in. It is a mom and pop shop kind of thing and now they are trying homeschool groups, because I have a neighbor that went there for that. Anything to make a buck. Very self centered people who want to be rich on your dime. They can care less about any ones child or children except their own. Stay FAR way. We tried along with many others reporting them, but no one seems to listens. It's nothing but a family business and not in any manner associated with Pasco County Schools! RUN!
