    "I have two children who attend Grand Canyon Prep. For several years running, I have found this school to be wonderful. The teachers are deeply involved with the parents. If there is anything I need to be aware of I immediately receive a call and/or an email. Being a person who attended school through to my doctorate, I really wished to find a school that my children would feel welcome at and would be challenged at but also enjoy. I did not want my children to go to one of the local schools with an enormous student population. Along with not wanting my children to be lost in the shuffle at a large school, I wanted my children to attend a school with diversity. All of my desired have been fulfilled at this school. My children have very different needs from each other and I feel both of them are being served very well at GCP. My children have both noted that there are "no bullies" at this school. I believe this is a reflection of the compassionate leadership at GCP. A special thank you to Mr. Gordon for his hard work in making this school what it is and also for his kindness towards all of the students."

    "My child had always been a top student who loved school. When we moved to Gilbert, she had a 4.2 GPA, had exceeded on all four portions of the AIMS on her first attempt, and her national standardized test scores put her above the 96th Percentile. When we read about the school online, she was quite excited about its dual-enrollment program. The principal made clear to us that it was high performing school (test-score wise), and made it out to be a perfect fit. Upon starting school, my child was immediately displeased. I thought it was just a case of new school anxiety, but this quickly proved to not be the case. She loved her fellow students, yet described her classes as Kindergarten-level (despite of straight A's), and came home every night begging to switch schools. One night she showed me her classwork, and I realized she was not exaggerating . I looked up the school's test scores, which turned out to be much lower than the principal quoted. We immediately changed schools, but as she was so far behind Gilbert HS, she got her only D of HS. This disqualified her from two separate full-ride scholarships (AIMS and Lumberjack).

    "I highly recommend Grand Canyon Prep. The curriculum is outstanding and the teachers are fabulous. I have worked at several other schools and I know how we compare. We work hard, the students work hard. We learn and they learn. What more could you ask?"

    "small school with small classes. the do not put up with bullies, not doing homework. The teachers care and take interest in each student. Parents are asked to be part of their kids process of learning. Fun activities and homework class after school. 8 to 3:30 school and homework club with a teacher and the principal is always there to help. 3:30 to 5pm. The offer music lessons, lego robotics, tutoring, soccer, debate team. Awesome place, my child is very happy here. Our child is very excited to go to school with his friends from 6th grade to 12 grade. The bigger kids really do play a role model for the younger ones here. Everyone really works on getting along. Of course their will always be on or two. But here it gets worked out quickly. it smooth sailing for a safe, clean learning environment."

    "We enrolled our daughter at James Madison preparatory school down the street because we like smaller classes. Many many promises went unfulfilled. We didn't even know our daughter was having issues until the report cards came out. she was even failing 2 classes. We worked tirelessly with our daughter. More Promises unfulfilled by the school. no student falls through the cracks? We left. After 1 year at Grand Canyon prep. Our daughter is on the honor roll, with her lowest grade being a b. Since enrolling at this wonderful school our daughter has blossomed. She loves the school, we love this school."
