GHM is a great school. I decided to send my son there because I attended the school from 3rd to 8th grade. It was a wonderful experience. The teachers take their time with the students, and the principal is amazing. They care about the kids, it's not just a job for them.

This is an excellent school with a vast array of educational and fun activities available to children from Pre-K through Grade 8. My child has attended this school since Pre-K and was reading beginner books by the first marking period. His teacher demonstrated patience, persistence, and consistency in her regiment for the classroom. She drilled into them the ethics of work first and play later. My son still follows that discipline four years later. My husband and I only pray that he continues on this path. All of the teachers show a unique interest in each child and work together with the parents, principal, and other faculty to develop a plan to strengthen each child's weaknesses and promote their strengths. It is a loving and encouraging enviornment. The curriculum at this school is a little more advanced than the average public school, but is still attainable for those transferring from a public school (if they apply themselves). The tuition is reasonable compared to the teacher/student ratio and the results that have been achieved academically as well as his personal spiritual and developmental growth. He will attend this school until he graduates from 8th grade!

Excellent school. I have another granddaughter in this school. She too has been in the school since Pre-k, and is doing very well. She will miss her big sister since she recently graduated. She loves going to this school great faculty. Principal Forrest is wonderful, he knows the personality of each child in the school and treat them as an individual. His motto is "Excellence is not an act, but a habit" and works. Love the school.

This school is a great school for a child to attend, it teaches children how to be proud and lets them know that they can achieve anything they put their minds too.

The students are unlike any other I have come into contact with. They are light years ahead of children in their own age category.

The young people at GHMCA learn the value of self worth and they graduate with high self esteem and are excellantly prepared to go to high school and are encouraged to continue on to college. They develop relationships with their teachers and they return to stay in contact with them.

The school is excellent with dedicated teachers and a supportive principal. The students most often attend the schools they select for high school because of their grades and the teachers.
