I'd give it no stars if it were possible. When I went there, the teachers were not trained and didn't go to college. At one point, a teacher of mine threw away a text book because she did not understand it.... Fortunately for me, my parents switched me to a public school. I was told that public schools were terrible and the curriculum was behind G.G.C.S. I almost failed because I didn't know half of the things that the kids in my grade were taught 2 years prior. Thank goodness the "terrible public school" I was switched to had great counselors and tutors. I don't know how this school is now, because it has been over 5 years since I have been in it, but I would never put my children through the things I went through at G.G.C.S. I was bullied every day and I was mentally and SPIRITUALLY damaged by them.

i went to this school from 4th- 6th and i have no complaints, they taught me well and were so sweet and the teachers were very one on one with the students, overall i am very pleased with them.

My child is going on her third year here. WHAT A DIFFERENCE TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS. The curriculum is great, challenging and interesting at the same time. Even moral values are taught here. It is Christian based... all the teachers and staff are wonderful, and friendly. The principal is a hands on kind of guy. He partakes in all activities. While there is aftercare, I wish there were after school activities.

My children have attended gospel for the past 4 years and I am so impressed with how caring and nurturing the principal and teachers are. This is a school where a child can grow in their relationship with christ and learn in an enviroment where they feel safe and loved. The staff at this school take time to get to know the children and work very hard even after school hours to make sure the childrens needs are met. I have been truly blessed to find this school.

I like the School, they strive to maintain a Christian based teaching while keeping the classroom size small. Like all things NOTHING is perfect, but with God as the focus All things are possible. I'm glad my children attend Gospel of Grace.

It is a very Christ like environment where any parent looking for Christ centered education for their children, will feel very much at home. All the teachers has an excellent spirit.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
