My child has attended GCS since 1st grade. The experience and education received thus far is 2nd to none. My child will be entering the 4th grade in the 2016-17 school year. If you're a Christian who would like to see your child educated in a Christian atmosphere, then you really need to consider GCS. From the principal to the teachers, they are all outstanding, caring and giving individuals. In case you're interested, they don't follow the 'common core' junk that most schools do these days - instead, the implement the 'Common Sense' method that most of us learned on years ago. And get this, they actually teach the kids cursive writing!! Cursive writing starts in the 2nd grade at GCS. Awesome school!!!

I attended GCS from the age of 3 until I graduated at 18. After graduation, I attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. Thanks to the intense curriculum and teaching at GCS, I had no problem in graduating from Liberty Univ. in the normal 4 years, but with 2 Bachelor of Science degrees (Biology: Pre-Med and Psychology: Clinical). I am now working towards my Masters of Biomedical Science and medical school after that. If you are anywhere in the surrounding area of Burton, I highly recommend you send your children here. You won't regret it.
