HGCS is a loving Christian environment, where the teachers and coaches truly and wholeheartedly care. Jesus Christ, spreading the Gospel, Bible and prayer are top priorities. This environment has produced students who are friendly, kind, caring and respectful to the teachers as well as each other. We are blessed and so grateful the Lord has led us to this wonderful place and how our son is thriving here!
