After starting at a brand new school at the beginning of the 6th grade year - changing to Gilbert Christian - agritopia campus - has been absolutely a blessing. Fantastic dedicated teachers, wonderful staff and quality education with a strong focus on academics. It was the best decision we made and if had known the school was so great we would have switched years before. I highly recommend you consider this excellent environment!!!

Affording Christian schooling seemed like an impossibility but when I learned about STO dollars and took the time to apply for them, our tuition ended up being covered in full. We were shocked! Our children receiving biblical teaching, top-notch academic instruction and love from the staff and their teachers has been one of the biggest blessings of my parenting years, especially after the initial decision to choose the "right" school for our kids had seemed so daunting. I cry almost every time I am on the campus because I become overwhelmed by the fact that my children have the opportunity to be educated first about the Lord and then to have incredible instruction in all subjects while in a small classroom setting. I can't say enough about this school and pray that we will be able to stay here for many years to come.

Gilbert Christian School has been a blessing to our family. Class sizes are small with an excellent teacher to student ratio. Students are highly encouraged to apply standards of biblical truth to all lessons. Teachers are passionate and hold high expectations while engaging the hearts of their students. The leadership and vision of Gilbert Christian provides a beacon of light within the community. As a mother and teacher, I see firsthand the preparation that goes into each lesson in providing a Christian worldview where students are challenged to live boldly for Christ. Students are taught to think critically and are emboldened to recognize God's craftsmanship in their lives.

I have a 1st Grader here and what a year we have had! This school is outstanding and it shines through my daughter. Excellent combination of high academic standards, while allowing them to be kids and find their interests. Each teacher we have had contact with is kind, open, loving and structured. Classrooms are well managed, campus is beautiful and the principal is a champion for her students and her teachers! We could not be happier!!!

Last summer we moved from WA to Gilbert and the most important decision we had to make was school for our boys. Gilbert Christian lived up to every expectation and so much more! Immediately we saw the enthusiasm of the teachers to teach. From the principal to the entire staff they look for the great attributes in each child and encourage them. They have been accepted by their peers and included even as the "new" kids. The small class size has allowed my boys to learn so much more! As a mom I immediately found a community of people that cared about our family. One of my sons has had health challenges and they have come alongside of him and us! I HIGHLY recommend the GCS!

I am so thankful for the experience my children have received from attending GCS. They were prepared academically for college, developed lifelong friendships and grew in their faith. An amazing school!
