Glenview Christian is the BEST school! The teachers there are always so nice to your children and make the learning fun. They involve you all the time. Glenview's like another family to us. If your looking for a Christ-centered education for your child, I would recommend Glenview to you. :)
Glenview Christian School is a wonderful school with caring and dedicated teachers and staff. This is the only place we have been where it feels more like our extended family than an academic institution. If you want your children taught not just the academics but taught Bibilical principles in a loving and caring environment, you need to check out Glenview!
This school was once a great school to have your children but that is no longer the case. This will be my child's last year there, if we can last all year that is. There is no involvement from the parents and enrollment is down by huge numbers. There is always talk of improving this or that, but nothing ever happens. I'm going to have to send my child to summer school so she will have a chance at a new school next year! Save your money and time!
As a parent who has a third child in Glenview I can say there is no better place to raise your child. There no nonsense approach to excellence in education is only superceded with the love and nurturing from the administration and staff to succesfully prepare my child for a world that needs strong Christian leadership.
I am a student who is attending Glenview, right now, and I bet, you are most likely wondering, "Does this student like the school or recommend it to others?" Let me answer your question. Yes, I LOVE the school! It is the best school in Fort Worth and I would recommend it to others... why, because it has amazing teachers there who are incredibly smart, and don't let me forget nice, caring, and lovable! They always have made learning fun by creating activities, and decorating there classrooms, about the current things we are learning. Now, let me tell you about the academics. They have challenging subjects, that make you think, and I promise by the end of the day, you will come home knowing many great things you have never, even heard about! Most importantly, they let you learn the Word of God! So, come check out Glenview(:
GCS, is the best school in Fort Worth for your children to go to! They have great teachers, there, ones who care about your kids. I have been happy letting my children go to GCS. On top of all the great teachers, they have terrific students and subjects for your children to learn, especially Bible! You should definitely, be a part of this wonderful school!!
At the end of the day, it's the staff and administration that make all the difference at a school. Sadly, neither have measured up at Glenview. There was staff turnover during the middle of the school year and there seems to be an overall lack of teacher training in place. My student is neither inspired or motivated to learn. Communication often goes unanswered by the staff and administration.
After May 2007 Glenview seemed to go downhill and as the faculty changed for the worse so did the school. They seemed to not know where to place their money and most of the teachers there just don't seem qualified to teach. It was promising and looked like it had a great future in 2007, but now im at a loss of words.
My child attended Glenview for six years, and I regret that we did not leave sooner. While there are some good teachers there, the administration leaves a lot to be desired. All decisions seem to be based on finances and playing catch up. It is wholly disorganized. We were ardent supporters of GCS for the first few years, but found the downward slide in academics, standards, and communications beginning around 2006 to be very frustrating. As for Christian atmosphere, there are some genuine Christian leaders there, but the pervasive culture of deceit and gossip amongst some of the faculty was not what I wanted my child to associate with Christian values. It has saddened me to see this decline, and I am happy with the decision we made to leave.
Don't waste your time or money. You will be paying extra to get your kids 'caught up' with their grade level. Everything is very unorganized and thrown together. No one is sure what is going on. I would not recommend this school. The teachers are good, but the leadership is lacking. They also accept troubled children.
My son attended Pre-Kindergarten at Glenview and I was extremely pleased not only with GCS in general, but with the exceptional progress my son made in the few short months he was there.
They opened their arms for my daughter, who suffered a terrible year at the MLCA in Keller. She is very happy here, great teachers and super nice kids.
I am so happy to have my daughter at Glenview. She has attended Glenview for 6 years now and the teachers and staff are very wonderful. I also love the renweb where parents can log in and see what homework the kids have, if they have been in trouble, what kind of grades they have been given on papers,etc. It's a wonderful and very helpful website. I plan on moving next year so I think this will be her last year at Glenview and that makes me very sad as well as scared. I am very pleased with all my daughter has learned from this school.
I am so happy to have a student at GCS. The academic programs are rigorous, but with the low teacher:student ratio, students having trouble are given the extra attention they need to succeed. Students who excel at their studies are given more challenges, and the teachers can cater to individual needs. Art, music, library, sports, journalism, writing, and many other extracurricular activities are available, all of which are offered with skill and enthusiasm. Parents are welcome and very involved to be a partner in their children's education. The atmosphere is of a caring, supportive community where the Bible is taught and God is served. You couldn't ask for a better school.
We have been at Glenview since Pre-K, my son is now in 8th grade. We love the staff and the size of the school. While we know it is important for children to learn the important aspects of life at home, it is great to have it reinforced at Glenview. The Christian guidance is so important. A wonderful place to get a great foundation that will allow our child to make wise decisions in the years to come.
My son has attended GCS since the second grade. He will be a member of one of the first graduating classes from GCS. The addition of high school was an answer to our prayers. Glenview has provided him with a Christ centered education complete with competitive Athletic and Fine Art opportunities. Glenview has traditionally ranked in the top three schools at all ACSI and CSAF competitions. Glenview's leadership has encouraged my son's growth academically, physically and most importantly, spiritually.
My son has been going to GCS from Pre-k thru 3rd grade. He has alway's loved his teacher's. They are adding high school next year and we hope to continue his education at GCS! Everyone is very loving and kind to the children and their family.
My daughter has gone to school at Glenview for 5 years now. It is the most wonderful school, the teachers are caring and kind, and they excel academically. I recommend Glenview to anyone who is looking for a Christ centered private school.
