School Reviews

  • Recommended February 17, 2013 - Absolutely the best school. Not only does Grace offer a great education and prepare students for their High School and College education, they also teach children to be responsible people in a very loving environment. Their staff is great. Communication is awesome. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended February 28, 2012 - My child attended GLS for 8 years and it was the best decision. When she began high school she was more than prepared for the academic demands and while we are not very religious, the important lessons of responsibility and morality were also instilled. - Posted by Parent
