I love everything about Grace Lutheran. My daughter has been there for two years now, and has been surrounded by a loving, learning, and creative environment. We are in constant contact with her teacher, as well as the principal. My daughter loves the reading program (the "SuperKids") -- it is her favorite part of the day. The facilities are great. Nice classrooms, lockers (even for the little K4 and K5 kids), playground, common areas. They have regular field trips, music and art. In the end, I truly feel that I am part of the Grace family, and that Grace cares about my child.

I can not express enough how much I LOVE Grace and their faculty! As a mother of 3 girls, everything I was looking for and wanted for my them, Grace has met & exceeded every expectation! NO other school, and I mean, NO OTHER SCHOOL can compare to the love, warmth, sincerity, academic challenges, and all-around geniune nature that Grace's faculty gives to each and every child. The teacher's are always accessible, whether it be by phone, email, text or face-to-face, they always stop to talk to you. The principal has a God-given gift to inspire each child to work hard and give their %110! Grace is truly home away from home; they are our extended family and I love them to pieces!!

The area in which Grace is located makes it possible for students to do things in and around DC that most kids don't have the chance to experiance. I loved having music and art classes every week and performing our music in front of the congregation on Sunday mornings. Grace really helped me improve my learning habits becasue it challenged me more than any other school I went to.

The school offers excellent academic instruction. Grace Lutheran School sets high standards for all of its students with the availability of an extended learning program. This is demonstrated in the fact that students score extremely high on standarized tests. The school offers music and art instruction to all students in every grade. The opportunity to participate in sports and ohter extracurricular activities are numerous. Grace teachers are committed to making sure that all children receive outstanding spiritual, intellectual and physical instruction. The love expressed by the teachers and the low student to teacher ratio makes this a reality. Come visit the school and see for yourself how safe, happy and involved the children, parents and teachers are in every aspect of the school.

The principal at Grace does an amazing job. The teachers are easily accesible and the low student to teacher ratio allows them to reach each students' needs. Being so close to D.C. affords the students countless opportunities for hands-on learning in our nations capital.

The school sets high standards in academics and challenges my children. Many parents are involved in helping support the children, especially for off-campus activities. The school is s mall, clean and safe with a good student to teacher ratio.

The quality of instruction is good in grades K-4, as are the teachers. Overall management leaves a lot to be desired, as is reflected in the lack of willing parent volunteers. Physical plant is above average for private schools, except for the computers (which seldom work well). Also, a science lab exists but apprarently is no longer in use.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
