We love GCS and reccomend it to everyone.

The Grandville Christian School curriculum includes the core areas of Bible, math, language arts, social studies and science. Non-core areas of study included in the curriculum are art, music, technology, physical education, and Spanish. Instructional lessons in the subject areas follow a carefully crafted sequential academic plan. All studies are taught from a Christian perspective. Woven into the day-to-day academic fabric of Grandville Christian School, are the principles and practices of Schools Attuned to All Kinds of Minds, a philosophy of educational care crafted to meet the needs of a diverse population of learners. GCS exhibits an unwavering commitment to manage the hearts and minds of all students, recognizing each child as a unique creation of almighty God. To treat everyone the same is to treat them unequally, so instruction is differentiated in the general classrooms. The school also offers educational support services for students with exceptional strengths and/or weaknesses in specific skill or content areas. A cross-cultural partnership with the Reverend Murupus Academy in Kapenguria, Kenya is another key component that permeates the educational program at Grandville Christian School. Students and staff from each school are partnered with each other to collaborate in learning. The two school communities are learning that Christ s Kingdom extends across a big, big world as we build global understanding and cultivate relationships literally halfway across the globe. Our goal is that students come to know God and understand his world.

Grandville Christian Elementary is the BEST school around. I have two children who have been blessed by attending GCS. The teachers care about each and every child. The office staff knows my kids by name. Our principal knows each child, our family and is extremely committed to making sure our children (and all of the students) are given an exceptional experience and education. My kids love attending the school and we (parents) look forward to any time we get to visit....it brightens our day!

This school is amazing! My child is in Kindergarten and recites Bible verses, learns new songs every week that I remember learning in 4th grade. Her teacher is so kind and patient she LOVES going every day. The teachers who are there sincerely love your children!

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.
