My three children attended GSLS for grades K-8 from 2007 to 2019, and we enthusiastically recommend this school. Christ was the focus of everything they did at GSLS. Our kids loved participating in the music and athletic programs at GSLS, and were well-prepared academically for high school. This school was a blessing for our kids and our family.
