School Reviews

Greetings and hope this email finds you well.My names are Miss Nakaye Christine and am the headmistress of Happy Hours Nursery Project and Primary School found in Picha ndege in KIbaha district in Pwani region in Tanzania East Africa. On behalf of our school a, am hereby humbly requesting for a friendly connection between our school and your school Grace Preparatory Academy.Am calling for this because we as one we can''t make it to the expected expansion which has to be in the best of interest of the people of Tanzania through providing assistance to those parents who are unable to pay for their children school fees, orphans, young girls who are affected by the early pregnancies, rapes cases,family abuse and child labor among others. Am sure with this friendship with your school and our school, we shall be able to expand our school . Hope our request will be put into your kind consideration. Thanking you so much. Yours faithful, Headmistress Miss Nakaye Christine

Our children both stated during the first year of college that other students at their university where having trouble adapting to college, but they felt like it was just as if I was just going into the next grade at Grace Preparatory Academy. Our son won four state championships while at Grace (2 football, 1 basketball and one baseball). Both children went on to get their Masters degree and one is working on their second.
