This is a great school! My son has been going here for a few months now and can't say enough good things about them. The teachers are great, they are organized, and care about the kids. They are always doing hand on projects with my 1 year old, having class time , and I can tell the difference when he comes home. He is lore interested in books and is doing very well in his class. I'm a very PICKY parent and this school exceeds the standard!

I can't say enough about how great this school is. My children are both reading way above their grade level. They have small class sizes , which allows the teachers to focus on each child's abilities. They are so caring, not only for the child, but also for the whole family.

Gloria Dei has been a wonderful fit for my family. I have two children that attend school there and they love it. They are challenged and genuinely cared about. They are taught about Christ each day. This is a wonderful school. Everyone is welcoming and parent involvement is very appreciated.

My daughter went to Gloria Dei for 4 years before we moved out of the area. It was hands down the best school we have ever seen! The staff really cared about my child and offered an advanced curriculum. If we still lived in the area, that is where my children would attend school. It's wonderful!

As a parent of a former student at Gloria Dei, I can say whole heartedly that Gloria Dei is a fantastic Christ centered school. We relocated or she would still be at school at Gloria Dei. After leaving Gloria Dei, my daughter participated in the IOWA basic skills testing in Ohio and did fantastic on the test. The principal and the teaching staff are extremely dedicated to the children. I would highly reccomend the school to anyone. The smaller class sizes are excellent too. They have a new facility and they offer music and sports as well.

This school is by far the best choice of all the other private Christian schools in the Hardin County area. It has loving, Christian teachers that are all accredited and has exceeded my expectations in terms of academic excellence. I have 2 children that have been attending this school for 4+ years and they are academically ahead of friends, cousins, etc. that are in other local schools in the area(public and private). When there have been issues, I have found the teachers and principal very approachable and willing to do whatever to do what it takes to ensure the success and happiness of my children. As parents, it is our responsibility to teach our children and help them grow with the HELP of teachers, clergy, and other family. We must remember, just because we pay to send our children to a private school that does not deminish our responsibility as parents.

5 Stars! This school's environment has been wonderful for my whole family! There is a great opportunity for parent involvement, small class sizes, and a wonderful sense of belonging. My children have really benefited from the personal care they have received thus far. Thank you Gloria Dei!

This school doesn't care about its children. It only cares about the money they bring in. The education is unsatisfactory and not worth the money you pay. You're better off sending your kids to a public school.

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.
