Grace Lutheran School is wonderful! I love the teachers, staff, academic challenges, and overall school feeling. If you are looking for a school where the classes are small, the individual attention huge and kindness and respect for all is important then Grace is the place for you! Truly a wonderful school!
We started all three of our children at Grace Lutheran School and then we moved to another county for three years. Upon return to the Salt Lake Valley, our children wanted nothing else but to return to Grace Lutheran School. They missed the small, friendly atmosphere where they could focus on learning instead of being distracted by overwhelming social dynamics. As parents we value the teacher to student ratio, the social studies fair, the health fair, the author and literacy festival, the after school sports program, the phenomenal band teacher, the faith values, and the amazing community (to name a few things!). Oh! And after school care! As a working parent what would I do with out it? It's totally wonderful. If I am not working, my children still want to go and spend time with their friends. Grace is a beautiful place to experience elementary and junior high school.
I highly recommend Grace Lutheran. My daughter was bullied at her previous school. Grace Lutheran has an anti-bullying policy. The school helps parents, teachers, and students resolve bullying issues. This school really cares how students treat each other. My daughter has been treated with tremendous respect and value. The principal takes an active role in the student's education and well being. The education at Grace Lutheran is excellent. I am so happy that I transferred my daughter to Grace Lutheran. She loves going to school, and has made many new friends. I really appreciate the values system the school is teaching her. I highly recommend Grace Lutheran for their excellence in education, strong moral values, and caring atmosphere.
Our family has been at Grace Lutheran Church & School for the past 5 years. We moved from Minnesota and this has been the greatest environment for both of my children. The teachers & the staff are incredible. If people knew what was happening in this school the walls would be bursting at the seams! COME JOIN US
Grace Luthern School is the best you could hope for in a values based education! My two children are both students at grace and excell far beyond their peers from public school. I value the love, compassion, dedication, and respect my children are given each day. Grace teachers truly give love and an education. Simply put a values based education that prepares my children for success in the future.
Grace has been a wonderful experience for my two boys. The teachers truly care about not only their academic development but also about developing their character. The Christian environment provides an ideal setting for learning in an atmosphere that teaches my kids to deal with the world around them in a positive, mature way. The school also focuses on a number of service projects that teach the kids to give back to those less fortunate--collecting hats, gloves and coats to donate; supporting gardening in Third World countries; growing vegetables for the Food Bank; sending letters to Veterans; Operation Christmas Child. It doesn't get much better than that! The teachers are very responsive when I have any questions or concerns. The support from parents is amazing. We have a very active parent group who cares deeply about all of the kids in the Grace family. The facilities are great...a full gym, a baseball field with free club lessons, soccer, basketball, volleyball. Grace truly is a great place to grow!
Our 2 kids have attended Grace from Pre-K up for the past 3 years. We're very pleased. The teachers are fantastic and really kind and caring. Small class sizes are a big plus - I think it has helped both our kids thrive. Great parent involvement. Academics are very good, with solid Christian instruction and values integrated well into the curriculum. Appreciate the music instruction in early grades; wish there were more foreign language instruction. Science instruction may be too heavily influenced by conservative Christian views (young earth, evolution etc) but in the early grades this hasn't been a big issue. As much as we love the academics, we equally appreciate the positive social climate. The kids are genuinely nice and we have not heard our kids pick up bad language or bad habits, nor have we heard of problems with bullying. Our kids love the after-school program (great for working parents) and actually beg to go there. We appreciate the added diversity of having a Korean student exchange program and Japanese teachers rotating through. Highly recommend at least for the younger grades.
Grace has been a fantstic place for my kids. They feel challenged in their school work. They love the smaller classroom sizes. The atheltics the school offers. As a parent I love the before school and after school programs, how the staff is responsive and nice to everyone and that you can talk to the staff about your questions and or suggestions.
I have tried the public schools in Utah and a different private school before switching to Grace. One word STRESSFREE. As a working parent, it is wonderful to have a school where my children are challenged educationally, ethics and morals are valued, class sizes are smaller, the teachers and principals are strong and respected by parents and the students. Before school and afterschool care a huge benenfit to parents who work. I could go on and on, my children and I love it. If money is a concern, they also have a financial aid program.
