We visited this school to consider it for our son for Pre-k and Kindergarten and possibly beyond. We were VERY unimpressed when we toured. The Director of the preschool was not friendly and seemed bothered by any questions. It seems VERY unorganized and not at all the top notch environment you would expect of a good private school. It really seemed like it had just been thrown together, rather than organized with advanced Christian education in mind. If you want average, go visit. If you want above average, do not waste your time. Until they put professional educators in charge, nothing will change.
Our child attended this school for 3 years. We felt blessed to of had the teachers we did. Each year our child thrived in the classroom and the teachers went ABOVE and BEYOND to help each child achieve their goals. HOWEVER, the administration leaves something to be desired. The inner workings of the school are VERY unorganized. School functions are mandatory and come with a FEE! There is no PTA, just a very small "hush, hush" group of moms/faculty. This group is NOT effective. Add the fact that the church actually makes all final decisions for the school, with or w/out the backing of the GCA families (a TINY percentage of church members have family/friends who attend the school). This has caused poor desicion making. Again, all the teacher's WE'VE had were great, but the inner workings of the school need a TON of work. The comment about the school being clique-ish, I think you'll see that at any school, but at GCA this problem is affecting kids/teachers/parents. There are about 3-4 moms who plan everything and no matter how unorganized or unsuccessful it is, they are chosen to do it again. This gets tiresome for other parents who have the skills/capabilities to do a better job.
The other 2 ratings are probably from people that are affiliated with the school some how. If you want an unbiased rating read this. If you want a genuine caring quality education for child I would not send them here. This has been a tough school year for us, my husband and I have to teach my daughter at home. She has learned nothing even having a small class setting. It has been a waste of money and time. I constantly am asking her what does the teacher do all day? The parents are not friendly and they have little groups like cliques. I came from a school were the parents all worked together, the teachers were lacking and the school was lacking but the parents worked together. The school is very unorganized and subpar. When I toured this school I thought it would be a good change. Wrong answer.
Guardian is like family to us. They really educate the whole child and not just ptep them for a test.
