I love grace school! I put 2 of my children in it for a year to see if it was a good school. My kids love grace school! Even though we are Muslims, they respect our religion! Grace school was so good I put my 2 year-old child in there! He loves his teachers! I recommend going to Grace School. The teachers are nice, People are Friendly, and people don't judge you!

Grace School has been amazing for my children and us as a family! My son started at age two and my daughter at 15 months, both will continue through 8th grade. All of their teachers have been wonderful, each going over and beyond always, not just with academics, but also ensuring the safety and well being of our kids. Grace feels like a true community, not just an academic sterile environment, but there's a genuine sense of caring and love for each student. I feel the foundation that my kids have received from their time at Grace will help them navigate through life's often challenging situations. I firmly believe they will be ready to move on to the next academic adventure because of what Grace has been able to provide. Cannot even imagine how life will be after Grace!

My son has been going to Grace School since he was two years old. He is now in the 5th grade. Every year he has had the most awesome teachers. Each of them have made a big difference in my sons life academically and personally. Very loving and caring teachers. I use to be a stay at home Mom, working now but feel very comfortable leaving him in the after school care. They assist him with homework and we all feel very safe. The Principal leadership is wonderful. They are always in tuned to what is going on with our children and will take personal pride in resolving any issues that may arise. I just wish Grace had a High School for my son to continue there after eigth grade.

This is our first year at Grace School, and we are thrilled with the academic quality and overall commitment to excellence. It is truly a first rate learning environment, and the teachers are singularly united in fostering the success of each student. The focus is not just on academics, but on whole-person development that builds leadership. We are happy with the integration of spirituality throughout the curriculum, and we love the close-knit community that defines Grace. More than anything, we are truly amazed by how excited our son is to attend school each day, and we are grateful to the educators and staff who make this happen.

We became a part of the Grace School Community when my sons entered Kindergarten and 5th grade. Since then they have enjoyed 5 fantastic years of quality education that builds not only academic achievement, but skills in leadership, discipline, and faithful living. We are grateful for Grace School, it's faculty, and it's families who have become our friends.

I've been so pleased with the education my children have received at Grace School. The academic program is second to none. I love the caring Christian environment that is evident throughout the primary, elementary, and middle schools. Another area that impresses me about Grace is the concern for the security of the campus. As a parent, I have the opportunity to volunteer in so many different areas. The Parents' Club at Grace is very active throughout the school year. My children have made so many friends at school and they love the variety of sports that are offered. This year a brand new sports complex opened that is awesome! If you're searching for a school, I recommend that you make an appointment for a tour, and see for yourself what a great place Grace School is!

How blessed I am to be a part of the Grace School (Houston, Texas) staff for over 10 years. The teachers as well as parents are so supportive of our school. Our students are nurtured academically and spiritually above and beyond expectation. I can honestly say we are excited to be a great solid foundation to their lives as they prepare for their careers. I encourage you to come and tour our school. You will be amazed.

I love being in such a positive environment every day! Teachers, students and parents seem to have a wonderful relationship with each other. We all work together and go the extra mile because we care so much about our students. I first became involved with Grace School as a parent when my children attended the Mother's Day Out and the Preschool program. They are now wonderful young adults and I have returned as school nurse. I truely feel at home here. What a gift to be able to work in a nurturing Christian School!

We Love Grace School. We are a new family and feel like we have always been here. My boys are thriving in Middle School. Grace provides an excellent balance of academics and sports. The classes are small and the teachers know every child in Middle School. Grace was the perfect fit for our family. My daughter is looking forward to attending Middle School next year.

The second I walked into Grace School I knew it was where I belonged. I felt right at home! The staff is the most welcoming and supportive you will find. As a teacher, Grace gives me the opportunity to teach in a very unique way. I am able to provide a balance between whole group instruction and one-on-one instruction due to the small class sizes. At Grace School, I am able to express and discuss the love of Jesus with children through the curriculum. Because of this, the staff and students are a close community with similar beliefs. I adore Grace School and the unique qualities about it!

After working in two different schools, I feel blessed to work at Grace School. There is a sense of community at the school and plenty of support from the parents and administration. I feel my child would thrive at Grace School. Not only are the children getting a great academic education, they are building character as well!

As a newer teacher I have been so impressed by the faculty, staff and facilities. Excellence and joy are a common thread. The students are so attentive and creative, yet polite and disciplined. Grace School, through its powerful leadership, has really cultivated an unparalleled environment for students, parents and it's staff.

I'm so blessed to work at Grace School! It is wonderful learning community where God and academics go hand in hand. Everyone is welcoming and friendly. The class sizes are small. The teachers are invested in helping their students grow as lifelong learners and unique individuals. Many families love Grace so much that they decide to have all of their children attend and stay until middle school. Discover the difference a God loving community can make at Grace School.

Our son is a student in the Jelly Beans two year old class. We chose Grace because we knew that he would receive a firm educational foundation, while also learning about the love of God. He loves coming to school each day, and talks about his teachers often. He is greeted with a warm welcome each day, and leaves each afternoon with a smile on his face. After just a few months we have seen an incredible amount of growth. He is more outgoing, talkative, shows more interest in books and literature, and is becoming more confident with each passing day. He is learning to love school, and more importantly he is developing a love for learning. We are so happy that he has started off his educational career in such a nurturing and enriching environment. This is the very thing that confirms our choice to send him to Grace School.

I have had the privilage of not only being a teacher at Grace School , but of also being a parent here. Grace School is a PHENOMENAL school with a phenomenal staff. As a teacher, I get to see what goes on behind the scenes here at Grace. The Administrators as well as the teachers here truly want what is best for children. Each individual student and family that attends Grace is top priority to our staff. As a parent here, I have been blessed to watch my children experience the best education possible in the most nurturing and fun environment. Once you experience Grace School, there is an imprint on your heart because you will fall in love! I can't say enough about my school! I love it!!

I have had the honor of being a teacher at Grace since 1998. There is no place I would rather be or teach. The teachers and staff here are top notch and are always ready to educate and nurture any student that walks in the door. When I have children they will attend Grace. Grace is the best!!
