This preschool cannot be beat for value for your dollar. The prices are very reasonable for full-time childcare and you get so much for it - music, spanish, field trips, lots of special events and summertime fun after the 'regular school year' ends. I have loved having my daughter there since she was 2.5. The only negative comment I have is that I don't feel their lunches and snacks (which are included in the price) are great quality. They do offer the kids fruits and veggies with lunch, but snacks tend to be carb or sugar loaded.

My son just started Kindergarten here. I'm excited about his new year, his curriculum and even his daily routine. I am filled to the brim on him learning Spanish, Art, and working on the Computer. He's also taking part of their Soccer team they have started for the Kindergartener's It's a good school whether it's Christian or not. I'm not a fanatic bible person and I think this place is the right amount of religion with the perfect amount of culture, right behavior, and the right amount of everything. I really like his teacher and I love the fact that I get daily updates on how his day was. Everyone has been nothing but nice and informative. My son has been here since preschool. :)

This school has absolutely broken my heart. Right now as I am typing this, I am crying my eyes out. I can't start this school until next year because of my gpa. I understand that they want good grades but I DO make good grades. It was just my last semester where I didn't do so good. And plus my old school messed something up. I thought this was a "christian" school.. God accepts everyone for who they are so why can't they? My heart is truly broken. I will never forget this day, the day when they rejected me. I really love this school however, but now I am having second thoughts. I really want to scream and cry all night. My heart is in so much pain. But now I see how the real world is.

I have 2 children in TGCS one in preschool and the other in 1st grade. The teachers at TGCS are nothing less than Amazing however the Administration in the Preschool office and the "Head of School" have done a horrible job with exemplifying what Christian Schools are all about. Everything from misapplying to just being very rude. This is the second private school my children have attended and when I was in private schools while growing up and unfortunately this past year has pulling my children from christian schools all together.

I used to attend this school and now I will be going back. The education is out of this world! It's worth the money and worth your time. You won't regret sending your child there.

My son has been going here since he was 2. He is now almost 5. For a private school, this place is affordable. But what I truly liked was the mix of asian culture, latino, blacks and whites. It's very diverse mix of cultures. This is their world. I'm glad he goes there, he has learned so much. He can stay till he graduates 12th grade if he wants.

My children have attended here since they were 3 yrs old. For hard working parents there is no better substitute for your children than the teachers, from preschool through high school. My daughter is graduating from the high school this year (2013) and my son will be graduating from the high school next year. Not only has my family invested 16 years here but Tower Grove Christian Preschool & School have invested deeply in my children. Alot of the teachers have been here for at least 10 years and many students come back from after college to visit a well-loved teacher or staff member. That is commitment. Start here and end here!

My son started in Preschool here last August. He is a week from completing his first year which is incredible. He learned so much the first two months, it was incredible. He will be 4 in December, and we are so proud of his progress. I wasn't sure which school to pick, and I had it down between this one and another one nearby. That one was too "uppity" this one is perfect! The teachers are amazing. The principal is too. It's just a great school. And my son can stay there as all through the years if he wants.

Tower Grove Christian School is a great school. I have been affiliated with TGCS for 8 years and would recommend it to everyone, whether they live near by or not. They strive for academic excellence and are well above many schools in the surrounding area! Class sizes are smaller, but this allows for more one-on-one attention from the teachers. They still have music, art, P.E., library, computers, foreign languages and more- for all grades. They also have an excellent sports program. If you are looking for a good edcuation in a safe environment, with a staff that loves each student like their own- then this is the school for you!

I have two children that attend TGCS. The Christian atmosphere is wonderful. All of the teachers really seem to care about my children. The school really strives to involve parents, and teachers are very good about communicating. I feel the discipline policies are fair and help in training children to be men/women of God. I cannot believe how much and how quickly my children are learning. I highly recommend this school. I could not be more pleased.

I am a proud graduate of Tower Grove Christian School. I can't say enough good about this school. The teachers really cared about the students. I loved that the class size was smaller because it felt like you received more attention. I don't know where I would I would be today if it weren't for this school. This school has been a blessing to me and is still a blessing to me. I have 2 neices who attend the school and are getting an awesome education. If you are looking for a school that teaches you child academics as well as spiritual and moral values, look no further. I would recommend this school to anyone.

I have been going to Tower Grove for eight years and I can say that it is a really good school. The teachers try hard to teach and the students have a lot of respect for them. The kids really learn a lot. They have a very Christian atmosphere and I like that. You don't see fighting and violence. I would definitely recommend this school.

My child attended this school for 5 years. This school is very one sided. Academically speaking, if you aren't up with class in all areas, you are left behind. My child has an extremely high IQ but was never encouraged. There is nothing POSITIVE about the discipline in this school.

My son has attended this school for the last 2 years. Academically speaking it is a great school. However, the teachers nit pick the students. Sometimes I feel as if these children are not treated as children but miniature adults. Parents are very involved here, which helps out. There is also a lot of homework. Students also get a lot of days out of school for holidays and other things. What I do not like is that breakfast is not served. There are no free or reduced priced lunches, children have to be driven or walk to school. Bottom line, stay involved in your kids' education.

Tower Grove is a good scholl if you like little schools. The teachers are all willing to work with you adn th curriculum is pretty good there. Its a college prep school which is also good. I am a student there and im in 10th grade. I started my freshmen year. The sports programs are excellent. There's an oppurtunity for a child of any age to play a sport and im not gooing to lie, tower grove is one of the best schools for plcing in the conference.

I have multiple children enrolled in this school. I have found that the teachers are very willing to work with students on an individual basis if needed. This school has a strong Christian atmosphere. Tuition is reasonable compared to that of other private schools in the area. The High School offers many electives including Power Point and Journalism. Their is a Parent Group and a School Committee. They have sports available for every age group. There is a counselor available to assist the High School Students with college applications. The High School offers college preperatory classes. The teachers that teach at Tower Grove are commited to and love the students. It is an Awesome Christ Centered School.
