My child has attended this school (GAPA) for 2 years. We have traveled a long and difficult road before finding and receiving 'grace' and compassion at GAPA. This school provided to my son challenges, structure and responsibilities and not to mention top notch education. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone. We are now embarking on a difficult decision to find another school, for my child will be entering into Middle School and he has expressed great interest in playing team sports, which, GAPA does not offer. If GAPA had the extracirricular activities needed to further challenge and fulfill my child's needs, we would stay there.

My children love this school. Every child is treated with care and love. Education is well beyond the other children we know that attend public schools. All children read in kindergarten and the math is very challenging but every class is small and usually have 2 teachers so the kids receive excellent attention and discipline. I highly recommend this school for anyone who is looking for a great education in a safe enviroment.

I had learned how wonderful this school was thru friends who attend the Church of Grace & Peace and prayed for 2 years that God would supply the funds to send my daughter to Grace & Peace Academy (GAPA). Well, my prayers have been answered and GAPA has been such a blessing to my family. GAPA's teachers and principal treat the children with respect and love, the children receive structure and discipline which is integral to our youth (which they are not receiving in public schools these days) and the curriculum is advanced and challenging. To say I am pleased with this school is an understatement. In public school my daughter has always been on the honor roll and learning comes very easy to her. At GAPA, she is being challenged and has to work for her grades (which are still honor roll material). I thank God for this school.

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.
