School Reviews

  • Recommended December 27, 2013 - Grace Community School is the best opportunity for education in Tyler, TX. We love the Grace family and could not imagine a better fit. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended December 03, 2013 - When we moved to the area three years ago, we found GCS extremely friendly and accepting of our two children. The academics are solid and we really wanted an education rooted in the Scripture. I''ve never seen a school more committed to teaching "Christianly" than GCS. - Posted by Parent
