Greater Beckley Christian School 4

This is a good school. I have been going to GBCS since second grade and so far its been good. Ive made a lot of good friends and I have learned many life lessons. Bullying is not a big issue and very few students curse or tell dirty jokes. Most of the teachers are pretty good. The school is fairly small, but it is typically very clean. There are some problems with the school like; the teachers are extremely strict. They are way too sensitive and protective. If your joking with your friend and call them a name you will be accused of bullying. The price is very high. And you will get a TON of homework. But overall its a good school and its worth it to go here. ly strict and are overly sensitive and protective. They think we are "bullying" when we play around with our friends and call each other names.

As a former student (who is now enrolled at one of the worst middle schools in the state, Collins Middle), I honestly have to say, this is by far one of the best schools in the county, if not the state. The staff and administration have 0 tolerance for bullying, and do provide time to speak to and help the children with work if they need help. Also, if any student is having problems such as depression or problems at home, they'll be sure to talk and contact parents and other relatives to see what's wrong. Too long, didn't read?: GBCS is one of the best schools in WV.

GBCS has an outstanding academic program. Approximately 50% of graduating seniors have qualified for the Promise Scholarship, which gives full tuition and fees for college. Only 12% of public school seniors qualify. In my daughter's class, there are a wide variety of ability levels. All of her teachers take a day each week to stay after school to work with individual students to give them the extra attention to help them succeed. The Christian worldview is why we send our child to GBCS.We appreciate the curriculum, standards, and the role models of the teachers and administration.

My two daughters graduated in 2000/2002 and received an education that prepared them very well for college. One daughter graduated from Liberty U in nursing and holds a position in a cardiac care unit in Columbia, SC. The other received a full academic scholarship to a private school in Virginia, graduated in two years with a bachelors and is now a pharmaceutical rep for Pfizer. They were involved in music, sports, bible quizzing, speech contests, missions trips, science fairs, student govt, and honor society. For a small school on a limited budget, there were many activities to participate in, mostly due to a dedicated staff and a host of parent volunteers.

My daughter attended Woodrow Wilson High School her freshman year and since transferring to Greater Beckley, she has improved her academic scores, gained quality friends, and is involved in 3 different sports. My greatest joy has come from the spiritual growth and committment to the Lord that I have seen in her in the past year. It is so nice for her to be receiving a good education and developing her desire to serve God at the same time. I would highly recomment this school to anyone who would want that to be a priority in their child's life.

GBCS isn't what it is cracked up to be. GBCS' teachers are well prepared for students and challenge the students in acedemics. On the other hand there is not a lot of programs for the students unless you are athletic or can read music. The rest of the students are left out of extra curricular activites just because they are not athletic or can't read music. The level of parental involvement is very high. This school offers a program called 'Helping Hands and Willing Hearts' for parents to volunteer during the school year.
