Gateway Christian School 5

I'm a parent of a K5 and 4th grader at GCA. This is their first year attending GCA and what an amazing year this has been. The school has an excellent ciriculum that balances academics and Christian principals. They have computers, iPads, Apple TV's, music class, language class, and RenWeb. The building is secured at all times and you have to be buzzed into the school. The school is affordable and not a big focus on finances and fund raising. You can pay on the 20th verses the 1st of each month. Hours offered 6am-6pm. The teachers care for children like family. Many school activities, events, pep rally's, field trips, and chapel time. The teachers communicate through text and email. My children love getting up each morning and going to school. They are learning so much and enjoy school. My 4th grader is reading at an 11th grade level. I can go on and on, this is a fabulous school and we are blessed to be part of the GCA family.

As the parent of a former student, the school did not provide quality parent teacher relationships, nor did they foster genuine Christian relationships. The principal and teachers in lower school were rude and uncaring. The school did not encourage physical education, art or music programs. It was a bad experience for us. Wouldn't recommend this "school " to anyone.

Academically, I feel like my kids are getting a great education. While I like the structure, I believe there is an overly tremendous focus on rules and penalizing the students for the smallest things. The thing that I disagree with the most is having the kids repititiously repeat the pledges to objects and the Model Prayer without giving them a real understanding of what and why. Nevertheless, it isn't enough to make me take them out. It's my responsibility as a parent to teach them God's truth at home.

I appreciate each teacher who has poured into my sons. Leadership has been great as well.

I believe their effectiveness depends on the involvement of the parents. I'm a very involved parent, so I get great results with teachers.

I feel like some teachers really help, but others are quick to give up on a struggling student.

I believe that they attempt to. I don't necessarily agree with their methods. There is great respect for staff, but students tend to compete with one another.
