    "Grace was not the best school for my child, he was enrolled from Pre-k to 10th grade before I took him out. His elementary school years he was fine, but his High School career was abominable to say the least. It was never any students he had problems with, but rather the extreme favoritism the school showed. Teachers always gossiped and often ignored him entirely. At one point he had offered an idea to a few kids for battle of the classes and brought it forward, throughout the entire process he was ignored and then reprimanded for not helping out. At one point he was given a lecture for not donating his money to a charity, consequently he was unable to because that was in fact, his lunch money. He'd often come home complaining on the unfairness of the teachers there and their quite clear favoritism of certain students, especially athletes or staff children. Sports are favored above academics and I am truly disappointed I did not listen to my child's complains earlier."

    "As a parent who has had children at this school for almost 10 years, I have had the opportunity to experience first hand, all of the academies, from Pre-K to high school. I can attest that the Pre-K and Elementary programs are fantastic. My children did wonderful and excelled through fifth grade. The attitudes of the majority of the elementary teachers are positive and loving providing a solid academic foundation. The secondary level leaves a lot to be desired in terms of academics, favoritism, bullying and an over-focus on fundraisers and sports in lieu of academics. Most of the secondary teachers and administrators lack the certification, degrees or just don't do have the love of children or education necessary to teach effectively. If your child does not naturally excel academically (and doesn t happen to be a star athlete), they will not do well at this school at the secondary level. I couldn't even tell you who the middle or high school principal is at the moment and I have children in both. Do your research before making the decision to send your child the Grace, the cracks are starting to show and I do believe the school is a sinking ship."

    "Grace has afforded me the opportunity to be a part of their staff for more than 13 years. As with any program, we are not perfect but are striving toward the mark of the high calling of God. Unfortunately, we are still human with the capacity to unintentionally and unknowingly inflict misunderstanding among the staff, students, and parents. As we lose and saturate ourselves in the love of Jesus Christ, we bridge the gap and restoration is restored once again. We actively seek to demonstrate the principles written in Matthew 18 when we have fallen short of the glory of God. I am honored to say I am a teacher at Grace Christian Academy."

    "I could never recommend this school to anyone. My daughter attended their Pre-K 4 program for approximately 5 months. She would not acclimate herself to the school and therefore, my husband and I decided to look into the matter. Her teacher had written in her progress report that she was an aggressive child. After this was brought to the administrator's attention and the teacher was reprimanded and was told by the administrator that nothing she stated described aggressive behavior and to revise the report. The same day our daughter told us that the teacher had told her to shut up. We requested for her to be transferred to another class and that was denied. We told the administrator if she cannot be transferred then we have no choice but to withdraw her. The administrator stated that although they are a faith based organization they are also a business and we will still be financially obligated in paying the school. We stated if you are a business, we are paying customers and we should be accomodated. This school has placed their profit margin above the development and wellbeing of our daughter. There is so much more to this story and we are so disappointed and totally discussed."

    "All though this school is very good at teaching about Gods love, some of it staff members do lack the ability to display kindness, they do gossip, lack empathy for parents concerns and desires for their child's future. This is sad because here it is two years later and the comments are the same. No improvement. My child will not attend this school next year."
