My children have been attending Grace Christian School for 7 years. I am so grateful that we found GCS when they were in TK. The teachers and staff are amazing. GCS, not only focuses on academics, but also building Christ like character in our kids. The staff and teachers have become family to us. It's more than just a school..... it's a community of believers shepherding our kids and supporting the families whose children attend. My kids have made life-long friends who share the same values. I highly recommend GCS. This school has it all!
