School Notes

  • Grace Community School exists to teach Jesus. That is who we are, and it is what we do. Picture who Jesus is and was. All that He did and said. What He taught us. What He's still teaching us every day. That is our primary focus. Grace is about Mrs. Allen not only teaching the American Civil War to your child, but to see God's sovereign hand through it. It is Coach Maddox, who uses the game of football to equip your son to endure the heat of August so he'll someday persevere through heat in his marriage. It is about showing your daughter how her hand on the bow of her cello can draw her closer to the heart of God. Finally, Grace is Mrs. Crawford praying over and shepherding the wounded heart of your child over the death of her goldfish, or her grandfather. If your greatest desire is for your child to learn to love the Lord with all his heart, all his soul, and all his mind, Grace would love to partner with you to help make that happen. It's what teaching Jesus is all about.

We love Grace Community School! The staff is amazing and has invested countless hours in my children. They are always willing to meet early or late to enable our family to succeed.

We started our children in the elementary upon moving to Tyler. The faculty and staff prepared them well for the "freedom" experienced in JH. Our kids transitioned beautifully and have found great friends. There is a ton of athletic and academic options - perfect for each of my children - from drumline to cross country. The faculty and staff are extremely caring and are a tremendous blessing to our family.
