School Reviews

GRACE Christian school is more than just a school - the people there have become like family! The quality of the teaching is incredible (each teacher is highly qualified for their position), and with small class sizes they are really able to asses the strengths and weaknesses of each individual child. Our children have the opportunity to explore all areas of education - including the arts, foreign language, and athletics. The facility at this school cares deeply about the whole child, and not just their academics. Where as other Christian schools may teach Bible as a single course, GRACE does more. Children here learn not just what the Bible says, but how it applies to us today. Biblical integration is included in each area of study, as well as in enrichment classes. Students here will grow up knowing what it looks like to walk with Jesus and will be able to acknowledge His authority over everything! There is a culture at GRACE that is unlike anything I've ever seen in a school, and we are so thankful to be part of it!
