School Reviews

  • Recommended June 20, 2012 - My son will be starting his sixth year at Grace and he and I are very happy with the school as a whole. Grace provides a high quality Christ-centered education as an extension of the Christian home. They stress academic excellence while building strong Christian character and encourage students to reach his or her potential academically, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. Children receive a sense of individual worth and are given direction toward life setting goals. Children attend school in a safe and nurturing environment. Grace offers music, fine arts, sports and state of the art computer lab. With small class sizes children receive more individualized attention. Grace''s tuition is lowest in the area for a quality Christian education. - Posted by Parent
