They give out demerits and the only real punishment is having to go to school a full week at school during one week of the semester while the ones who didn't get a lot of demerits have to go for four days. If they get like 50 or how ever many they have in school suspension. Some punishment.
The school is a nightmare. The only students they care about is the ones that attend church there and they hate the different religions. I know that because I was bullied because of it, even by the teachers. The teachers don't care about the other students, I know because I have been there for six years. When I get married, the last thing I want is for my kids to go there.
Sorry for the others but I do attend church and know many of the members! The school is a great learning atmosphere and as a parent I was also very involved with any issues my daughter had. And the principle is a sweet heart who has helped my family I also love his wife she's awesome. May God bring peace to your hearts former student that attended. May God root out the anger y'all are still carrying inside. Thank you to Grace and to my Pastor you guys mean so much and I love you all!!
As a now ex student from this school, I can honestly say that Grace made the years I spent there a nightmare. The environment is toxic and superficial. The staff do not seem to care about you, only how you present yourself. If you do not agree with everything they say, then you will be blacklisted. (I witnessed a peer being ostracized simply because she did not share the same political views.) In my ninth grade health class, I was made to feel as though if you had a mental illness (such as depression or anxiety) then it was your own fault. There are many problems with unfair discipline and favoritism among the staff. The only thing decent about the school is the cirriculum and even that is made mediocre by terrible teachers. (The current math teacher has absolutely no idea what he is doing.) The only students I knew at the school who didn't feel attacked or mistreated in some way were staff kids and attendants of the church. Do yourself a favor and don't send your kids here. They will thank you.
Being an ex-student of this school, i'm going to be honest. I hated every living minute of the place. For one thing, the "staff children" are treated better than the children who aren't and/or go to a different church. A personal story from me is that one day the principal found out something VERY personal about, called my parents, and DEMAND i take action and "correct myself." I now attend a public school and i feel safer and more aware of everyday life of the REAL WORLD. Grace is built inside a bubble. So unless you want your children to be taught to ignore the true facts about the world (drugs, sex, jobs, how to live in the world, opinions, etc) then sign right up. Your child is not safe, take it from a student who literally had panic attacks thanks to that place. -M
Very poor atmosphere. Children whose parent that don't attend the sponsoring church or believe as they do are treated very differently. Discipline is very inconsistent where certain students receive preferential treatment. The principal seems nice but is actually just concerned with himself and how he is perceived. The education is decent not worth paying for though. Overall it's a very close minded overly conservative place that tries to control every aspect of your children's lives including what they do at home. Avoid at all costs
My daughter is in her second year and learning piano & violin and we are members at Grace I love the school, pastor and many more. They are very caring and understanding. Not everyone will have the same opinion but to slander them may God have mercy on you to write those things and you proclaim to be a christian wow its really sad to see people so bitter but all we can do is pray for them. Love GBC & GCS
