This is truly the most amazing school! Tired of teachers who are either too overwhelmed, to tired, or just don't seem to care? Maybe of administration getting in the way? At Gethsemane every teacher here completely surrounds your child with love. The academics are above national standards. Children feel safe and cared for and free to just learn. I am so happy we found Gethsemane. They were quite a bit farther ahead in math and phonics than the public school was, but the teachers were so fantastic, the had my child caught up and thriving in less than 2 weeks. It's like a big family and every one looks out for everyone. Very active Parent/Teacher program. Come in for a tour, you will see what I mean. You cannot go wrong bringing your child to this AMAZING school!

Gethsemane has been amazing with building all of my children's foundation for school. The Montessori program is outstanding, as well as the Kindergarten and 1st Grade. My child recently scored in the 96th percentile for reading and comprehension in Kindergarten! In her short time as a 1st grader with Mrs. Larrabee, she has made even more leaps and bounds.

Gethsemane is a fabulous school for it's strong academics and it's fantastic staff. The Montessori pre-school was just a start for my kids'' educational experience at Gethsemane. With each Pre-school, Pre-K or elementary class, they have grown academically and spiritually at this school. My children have tested 2-3 grades above their individual levels since Kindergarten. This school offers more than just great education and faith; it is a community where lifelong friendships among the students, parents and staff are made.

My son has started in Kindergarten at Gethsemane and it has been a huge blessings to both my son as well as my family. He enjoys coming to school everyday to learn, play with his friends, and share the good news about God. The faculty and staff at Gethsemane care about all of the children who are enrolled here, and will never think twice about going out of their way to help a child (or parent!) in need! Not only have his skills in school subjects improved, he is becoming a more confident and caring individual.

Gethsemane was an obvious choice for my child due to the low teacher to student ratio and the fact that all of the teachers care so much. The academics are also very highly emphasized. My child started to read and do basic math in Pre-School and he is continuing those skills as he progresses through school. He excels and is encouraged to experiment with his new found knowledge on a daily basis. Great school for raising independent thinkers!

We have been at Gethsemane since 2008 when my oldest daughter started preschool. She is now a second grader at the school. My son is a kindergartener and my youngest is in preschool. The class sizes allow for plenty of teacher one on one, and the students are not just classmates, they are family! We love this school!!
