School Reviews

Not only am I a parent, but also a graduate of this school. My oldest child is a graduate of Glen Iris Baptist and I still have two children attending as students. My children have all excelled as students of this school and I can't think of a better environment for them. I've never had to fear for their safety or well-being, as the school staff treats each of the students as well as they would treat their own children. With the lowest tuition rates of any private school in our area and students who consistently test well above the national norm, Glen Iris Baptist School is second to none.
