I absolutely love Grace. My son has been attending since last year and will be in PK4 in 2015-16, along with his 2 year old brother in the Twos program. It is a nurturing Christian environment that remains non-judgmental. My son is thriving and learns something new daily. The single complaint I can think of is tuition going up, but it's hard to fault them for it!

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!

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 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!

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!!

When I first started my hunt for the perfect teaching job, my goal was to find a school where my values and teaching style were closely aligned with one another. I wanted to find a school where everyone associated with the school - teachers, students, staff and families, worked together as a team to achieve awesome results. In my mind, although important, awesome results are not solely based on high academic achievement. Ultimate success to me means, creating rich and engaging lessons that help fuel a lifelong love for learning within my students, helping students discover their true passions as a writer, or artist and guiding children to become compassionate citizens, who genuinely want to make a difference in the world. Incredibly enough, my prayers were answered and I found a school that exceeding my expectations. I landed my dream job as a third grade teacher at Grace. I could not be more proud of the school and community that encompasses me on a daily basis. It is a blessing to have so many amazing mentor teachers to learn from and knowledgeable administration you can fully count on. I am so impressed with the parent involvement and support I receive from Grace.

My school is amazing and exemplifies everything a school should be. The staff consists of highly professional, hardworking people and the curriculum is designed to help students learn and succeed so that they can build a foundation that will last a lifetime! I am honored to work among such a loving group of caring people. We are more like a family than just a faculty. We honestly care about each other, the students and families we serve. Most importantly, the teachings of Jesus Christ are the focal point for all we do and are at the heart of our school. The students are learning how to love their God and their neighbor while gaining an appreciation for His Word and its plan for salvation.

Grace School is a wonderful place for students to learn, and I am thoroughly enjoying teaching at Grace Middle School as well. As a new member to the Grace Faculty, I have been very encouraged by other staff members in addition to the extremely warm and helpful welcome that I have received from the parents of my students. As a teacher that has been in the classroom as an educator for over 18 years, I am very excited to see such a caring community of staff, students, and families that truly support one another in education, love, and life! I hope to continue and grow as an educator and also as a teacher in the future through this Christian community of people that are making a real difference in the lives of each other. Thus, there is a quality education being provided to young people that stems from a nurturing environment that is safe and loving for all that are participating. If you have any doubt that what I right about is true, please call and arrange for a tour while classes are in session.

Grace is an incredible school and we are VERY happy with our daughters progress during her two years here. The staff, teachers and leadership are beyond exceptional. The learning environment is safe, loving and has resulted in our daughter's love for school blossoming. We recommend Grace School to everyone, because we know first hard what a positive influence it has had on our family. We are so happy with everything Grace School has provided for our daughter's education. The teachers and level of experience they offer is outstanding.

We love the Grace School! My daughters are thriving there. The Middle School is amazing! It has the full experience with sports, dances, pep rallies, theater, band, class trips, but is small enough to keep great student to teacher ratios low. We also love the lower school. Great teaching staff - devoted and energetic. We feel that our girls will be well prepared for high school and life. We are very blessed with a dedicated Administration and Leadership team. They are wonderful, professional, Christian leaders who dream big and deliver. I am very involved as a volunteer parent and feel that my children and loved, challenged, protected and nurtured at this school.

Best-Value Private Christian School: If there was a Princeton Review for primary, lower, and middle school private education, The Grace School would be ranked in the top three schools in Houston based on academic quality and cost of attendance. Truly, amidst a sea of educational options, The Grace School is a beacon to many in its academic excellence while firmly holding to its faith based heritage. My wife and I have watched our daughter blossom into her own person since attending The Grace School. Through the nurturing faculty and staff, The Grace School offers a distinctive uniqueness to each child by encouraging them to develop mentally, socially, spiritually, and physically as a whole person. We believe a Grace School education is the greatest gift we can give our daughter to help her prepare for a successful future. Bottom line: Best value for our money, Christian environment, phenomenal teachers, engaged administration, and state of the art facilities.

We love Grace School! Finding the right school can be hard because there are so many options! When trying to choose the right school for our son, we visited, went to open houses, took tours, read reviews...just about everything we could do...and then we found Grace School. It's truly a best kept secret!!! The teachers at Grace are passionate about their careers and their students. The administration is wonderful and the parents are extremely welcoming. Coming to Grace is like coming home...the warmth you and your child feel just by walking through the door is something I haven't experienced at any of the schools we toured. Words can't express how happy I am with our experience!!! From curriculum to philosophy, Grace is truly the only place I'd ever consider enrolling our children. And I trust them! They are with my child 5 days a week for 7 hours a day and it gives me peace that the staff cares about them and for them. My son, who was very shy and quite behind, has bloomed and blossomed into a student who loves to learn. He is respectful, caring and passionate...even though we teach him these things at home...I think Grace has a lot to do with it as well.

I've seen my children grow and strive in areas I never expected, and I know it's due to the wonderful teachers at Grace School. Our two middle school children are challenged in their classes but do not feel too pressured or stressed. The middle school teachers are exceptional! They are somehow able to provide a strong, challenging academic environment while making the children feel nurtured and proud of their accomplishments. Our experience in the Primary School program has been incredible! The warm, welcoming environment was a big factor in our decision to attend Grace School.

Grace school used to be a great school, in academics and family. When you walked into Grace you knew everyone and felt like you were part of a family. Now after the new admninsitration has come in and fired the head of middle school, and made some abrupt changes, the whole feel of the school has changed.

love this school! My older children attended when it was in top shape. Sadly, there was a slump in the quality due to a wishy-washy head and an awful Lower School and Middle School head. Now that there is a whole new administration, things are back to great again. There is an increase in academic challenges as well as a friendly, upbeat atmosphere.

I have been at Grace School all my life and through all the problems with the head of lower school before we now have an awesome head of lower school and middle school. They are both extremely involved and care about everyone. The middle school outshines the early childhood and lower school. All three are awesome but I have to say I have personally enjoyed middle school more. There is the right amount of disipline and we still can enjoy the last years of our lives considered 'kids'

I love this school! My children have attended from Early Childhood through Middle School. The older ones were more prepared than my younger ones. Things began to slip academically. I think it is because the parents were given a 'voice' in what was being taught. Thankfully there is new leadership to turn that around. She is updating things academically, and parents are put back into their parental role. The Lower School head wasn't great, but she is leaving this year. I see nothing but great things coming for this school.

My rating is based on the lower school program- early childhood program is excellent! The lower school is not at all very good. I pulled my child out in the 3rd grade leaving with a- average and in the public school in our district she barely passed the fourth grade. I do not think the lower school program is very good at all. I do however believe the middle school is very good. The lower school director is not very suitable for Grace at all.
