We have been at GSL since both my children were three. As a dual working parent it has been wonderful. I always know my children are engaged, learning, and feel safe. They do no want to leave when I pick them up!!! I really can't imagine being anywhere else!

GSL was a great place for me to grow up. It was a vital part of the growing up process, and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. I am so grateful for the abundance of time that I was able to spend at such a welcoming place.

Our son has been at GSL since PK and is now in the 2nd grade. GSL is a remarkable school and he has thrived - both academically and developmentally. The teachers and staff are wonderful and truly care about each child. The sense of community this school fosters is fantastic and we can't imagine sending our son to any other school. As a family with two working parents it's great to know your child is in an environment that is not only academically challenging, but where he is happy and well cared for.

My kids have attended GSL since kindergarten, and we all absolutely love it. The school curriculum is advanced, creative, and engaging. The teachers are amazing. Their devotion to the students is obvious and they''re vital to the progressive, warm environment that makes the school so special. Parental involvement is tops, too -- a great sense of community here. As I said, we love GSL and can't imagine going anywhere else.

I am an extremely proud alumni of Grace-St. Luke's school and on all accounts I believe it to be the greatest school in Memphis, TN. I believe that I can truly speak on all aspects of GSL because I not only attended school there from Mother's Day Out to 8th grade, but I participated in almost every program there. The academics at GSL not only sufficiently prepared me for high school but led me to academic honors both during and after my time there. The teachers genuinely care about each and every student that comes through their doors and they will do whatever means necessary to help his or her students succeed in their class. I was involved in Theatre, Sports, Student Government (as president), and the Clubs offered on campus which set a precedent in my classmates and me of student involvement which has carried over to both my high school and college life. I know for a fact that I would not be the well-rounded person I am today without the values instilled in me at GSL. My parents will also vouch for how much a GSL education pays off after sending three children there.

Both of my children have attended GSL since pre-kindergarten. I am thrilled with our school choice. GSL is a great balance of strong academics with a warm, friendly atmosphere.

My child has only attended two years so far (PK & JK) but GSL felt like home from the very first week. There are a ton of dual working parents and the school is very helpful in that regard with early drop off included in basic tuition (7 am) and very affordable aftercare until 6 pm. The Moms that are able to be at the school during daytime hours have been great in volunteering and taking the load off of those of us with less flexibility. Our entire family feels part of the school community especially with the GSL church offering sports teams during the pre-school years. We look forward to many years to come at GSL!
