My children have only gone from PreK3-2nd as on now, but usually have plenty of time during school to finish their assignments.

This school is a hidden gem in Quincy. They not only teach great Christian values, but they also teach respect. They are rewarded for compliments they receive and the children take pride in that. The older children help the younger with activities and that shows both ages how to be a good influence. They are learning things that the public school have decided was not necessary anymore. The smaller class sizes helps to make sure everyone is on the same page. My child was surpassing his goal and was able to work on additional assignments, much like an advanced class so he was not bored. The teachers are great and they love their students as do the rest of the staff. If you are a parent who enjoys being involved you have plenty of opportunity here. The Parent Teacher League is always happy to see new faces wanting to be informed and helping. You are able to come eat lunch with your children when you please. They do have a wonderful security system in plan which makes me feel very safe that my children are not to fear just anyone entering their school. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a Christian school that is other than Catholic call and set up a time to talk to the staff. I know people who had children struggling in the public school system and they moved half way through the school year and graduated on honor roll. It is truely a blessing and will forever have a piece of my heart.
