My child attended GCA from K-6. I was very satisfied in the early part of her attendance. However, once she reached grade 5, things really began to fall apart at the school. Over the years, bad teachers, weak administration, lack of classroom management, many, many changes in teaching staff (my child had 4 different teachers one school year and 3 the next, which severely stiffled the learning process), and lack of dicipline caused me to move my child to another school. I did not believe she would be prepared to enter high school, if I allowed her to remain there any longer than she did. She has florished since she left GCA. GCA started off good, but ended up being a great disappointment. On a good note, the latch key program was is run by a caring staff who make great efforts to offer good activities and set good examples.
