At first thought it would be a great school but after the treatment this school has given my child I would never recommend this school!! Not only has my child not been given support in education when struggling. But the principal has suggested that another school would be the best interest. I mean WOW, so much for being Christian and wanting to help students succeed. My child's self esteem is low and I believe this school has played a part in that cause he has been pointed out from his teacher and teacher aid nothing but negative comments. Which no child deserves. And yes I have brought things to their attention but there was no change. I know I'm not the only parent that feels the same, and that's a ashame for the school.

Grace is a great school! The teachers are warm and caring, and they do whatever they can to help their students to grow and succeed - socially, academically and emotionally. Academics are stressed here - and students are expected to try their best. The school really tries to prepare the students for success in high school, college and beyond - just like their mission statement says. I know my kids are learning what they need to succeed. Classrooms are clean, bright, colorful and small. My eldest has 16 in her class and my youngest is in a class of 15. Talk about individualized attention!

Small class sizes, caring teachers, individual attention, Christian upbringing, open to all faiths, gang-free... Great place to be!

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 is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
