School Reviews

2 weeks ago
I attended GCS from the age of 3 until I graduated at 18. After graduation, I attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. Thanks to the intense curriculum and teaching at GCS, I had no problem in graduating from Liberty Univ. in the normal 4 years, but with 2 Bachelor of Science degrees (Biology: Pre-Med and Psychology: Clinical). I am now working towards my Masters of Biomedical Science and medical school after that. If you are anywhere in the surrounding area of Burton, I highly recommend you send your children here. You won't regret it.
