- Highest year-to-year student attrition rate in Collier, Lee, Charlotte and Sarasota counties. - Not a single teacher with current educational credentials, - A principal without an academic degree or any experience. - SAT 10 scores at least 1 grade level below every other Christian School in the region. - A proven record of failure when their "graduates" fail to pass the FCATs and are help back. Let's face it, this school is the final step before homeschooling. We trusted a neighbor when we moved here mid-year and enrolled our child. We are no longer on speaking terms with that family nor will our child be returning. It it was not for the fact that we didn't want our child to have to attend 3 different schools in one year, we would have left after the second month. Now well have to play catch up until August. Don't make the same mistake that we did if you live your children.

great curriculum, teachers, faculty and families. Wonderful place to have my children learn. After graduating Genesis, my children were much farther ahead than their classmates in public school. What a great education!

This school is wonderful. The staff is so kind and caring. The campus so safe! It's tucked away in a residential section. I know the kids are safe while they're there.

This is the best school and my son has really prospered here. He loves it. The class sizes are small, and he likes his teachers. He has made many friends here over the last five years. The only thing i wish is that it went through 12th grade.

An educator myself, I was seeking a Christian, loving, yet structured environment for my very, shy daughter. She was there through the 7th grade and left the school more confident and with huge organizational skills she learned from Genesis. She just graduated from a university with a business degree when public high school teachers said she would never make it at a university! But her Genesis teachers believed in her and her abilities! What can I say about a school that changed my daughter's life for the better! The teachers were superb! They truly love their kids! The curriculum is outstanding and they will learn great project skillls that will help them in high school and beyond. I have seen miracles in the life of my daughter. Would you not be proud of a school like that? Thank you teachers, for your sacrifice, emotionally, physically and monitarily!!God bless!

My daughter has been very happy here. The atmosphere is great. The teachers are very loving and the principal is outstanding. It is a growing school and the principal is committed to offering as many enrichment activities as possible. Academics are very solid. Parents are involved, but the level of participation could be better. A lot of parents work full-time and that makes it more difficult, but the school has a very strong PTF and School Board. My daughter has been well-served at this school.

This school is a wonderful school. My son is already reading,adding and subtracting,and telling time in Kindergarten. His teacher is wonderful. This school has field trips, science fairs,halloween parties,etc. They have a chapel day once a week and they learn in there class about god and jesus. This school has k-4 thru 7th grade. I'm glad this school is here. The staff is great to. They have the same closings as public schools.

My daughter attended Genesis from K5 - 6th grade. She has gotten a superior education with a loving Christian background from dedicated, wonderful teachers and staff. I would highly recommend this school as it has given my daughter the best learning foundation possible.
