I went to this school for 2 years. Those 2 years changed my life. AGCS is a small Christian school. That doesn't mean it's not competitive. I was pushed, not to compete against my peers, but to compete against myself. My teachers always knew when I could be putting more effort into the work. When my parents enrolled me, I was skeptical. I didn't want to go. I had a really bad attitude. That changed very quickly. I learned to love school. I was introduced to music and dance, I learned to love reading, went on countless field trips, felt accepted by my classmates and valued by my teachers. I graduated from the UW School of Nursing with a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing. My 4th and 5th grade years at Amazing Grace remain my most formative and enjoyable years of schooling.

There's much more to running a small private school than offering great academics and teaching. Be sure to check under the hood regularly to make sure everything keeps running smoothly.
