My son spent most of 6th grade at GNCS and I could not be happier! The small class size and staff have met all my expectations and more. I felt I could ask any questions to any staff member involved with my son. I am so happy that I have enrolled both my children next year!

The preschool experience for my child has been excellent. Everyday he was greeted with big smiles from his teachers, a big gym to run around in or bike in, and a classroom with lots of color and a Bible prominently displayed. I also like how he goes outside everyday. I highly recommend this school!

This small school is a hidden gem in the middle of a great school district. What I love about this school is the depth of care that the teachers have for the children. I have sent my 4 children to this school and now my granddaughter is attending. She is 7 and is excited by school every day. The enviroment is one of acceptance and loving your neighbor, where "all children" are to be respected and included. My granddaughter's happy face and attitude toward others tells the tale. The excellent education is a bonus in preparing my children for there future success.

This school has been a huge blessing in our kids' lives. We have sent three students there, and each has thrived. The teachers get to know them, accommodate to their abilities and interests, and provide those meaningful extras that make the experience memorable.

Teaching the whole child and not just academics. .Excellent one on one ratio and differentiated learning. Great manners and etiquette. Many field trips. Great repore amongst the teachers and kids. Super grounds among trees and next to a pond where lots of winter and summer sports take place. Because of the beaurtiful campus the children recieve a lot of first hand education and in the field learning. All day kindergarten has the chldren experience a balance of literacy,math, science, art, music and PE... and there is still enough time for play...outside in the beautiful grounds! I love teaching manners and etiquette through baking and bi monthly tea parties for which the children learn to set tables, then dress up, and clear away afterwards as they have so much fun.

I have two children in the school and have been very satisfied with the level of education and guidance they have received from the teachers and leaders of the school. The class sizes are small and teachers individualize instruction for each child. The atmosphere is very caring and the teachers speak with respect to the children and parents providing a value-based education. Children who have gone through this school system and later go to Glenbrook South do exceptionally well, because the teachers prepare students academically as well as socially, instilling values on a daily basis. A visit to the school is definitely worth your time.

The Teachers are excellent, kind and truly care about the students. If a child does not understand something they will take the time to tudor them until they fully understand. The school has a positive environment so the children can grow with self confidence. This school prepared my daughter very well for High School. She is a Freshman and is on the Honor Roll. This school is very inexpensive compared to most private schools.

The Glenview New Church School is a wonderful school for a child to learn and grow. My daughter attends here and I am impressed with the involvement of the whole school community. The students are treated as individuals and not just a person sitting at a desk. There is love and warmth in a caring enviroment. Parents are always welcome. We are like a small school family. Come visit anytime and see this great school for yourself.

The Glenview New Church School provides excellent services to their students and families. The care my child receives is very loving, wholesome and individual. I know I can go and talk to the teachers anytime and about anything that concerns my child. Great school for working parents - before and aftercare is availlable!

GNCS is such a warm and caring environment. The small class size is a appealing, as each student receives a ton of attention and is treated as an individual. The preschool is developmentally appropriate with plenty of time for children to learn through play and exploration both indoors and out. The communication from the school is outstanding. I appreciate the school's genuine interest in involving the family in each child's education. If you are looking for a positive, challenging environment where your child will thrive, look no further!

My wife and I moved here 4 years ago. Finding this school was a blessing. The programs and facilities are excellent and very child-centered. An issue came up between a couple of parents and when it was resolved professionally and lovingly in a very short time, it was clear to me that these people's hearts and abilities really are in the right place. I recommend the school to anyone.

Three of my children went all the way through the school and I found that it was a wonderful foundation. The children received great individual attention and learned at their own speed, thus keeping them engaged and enjoying school.

GNCS has been a wonderful choice for us. The teachers go out of their way to be flexible, and to accomodate to each child's individual needs. The environment is extremely loving and positive . My son't only complaint is that the school day is 'too short!'

This school provides high quality education and individualized attention to each of its students. The campus is beautiful complete with winding forrest paths, 3 playgrounds and a picturesque pond that is home to many kinds of wildlife including ducklings in the spring. The community is very friendly and down to earth.

The youngest of our four children will graduate from the GNCS this Spring. In a large metropolitan community, it is a blessing to be involved in a school where our children are loved and respected as the individuals they are, and not a 'number' on a school ID to any one. The education is outstanding. In a small class, childen are taught to think for themselves, and have the space to be very creative in all classes from math to history. Students are able to take part in all aspects of school life, so they get experiences in plays, all school musicals, rotating school paper editor, and working with different age groups from preschoolers to adopted grandparents. GNCS is a community where teachers, parents and students work together for a rich learning experience.

We have been very happy with GNCS over the past 3 years. The school is small, professional and responsive. We have great access to teachers and admin. The size creates a challenge for athletics, but they make up for it with collaborate programs with other schools, the park district and an emphasis on health. Excellent choice for the tuition. All our kids are advancing rapidly. Standardized test scores are outstanding. Loving Christian environment. We love it.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.


Breaking down the GreatSchools Rating

Unfortunately, this school doesn't have sufficient data to generate an academic rating.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
