    "I agree with the previous posting. The school has experienced alot of turnover over the past few years. Teaching quality is inconsistent;Some teachers are excellent.Others are absolutely horrible. The Administration isn't actively removing those teachers who don't perform. As mentioned in a previous post, if your child is in the "gifted and talented" range then GCA might not be challenging enough for your child. The afterschool program is a joke, with a weak selection of offerings. On the other hand, the 8th graders all seemed to get into great hight schools this year (e.g. Hackley, Greenwich Academy, Ursuline, Masters, Convent of the Sacred Heart, Fordham Prep, Iona Prep)."

    "The reviews on here are old. This school has gone downhill jurastically over the past year with new leadership. One of my children has been attending for 8 years now. I would highly recommend going to another private school within the area that offers more programs and activities for your children. My children have been telling me about these crazy rules that are absolutely crazy. I a parent do not even agree with them. Please reconsider if you are sending your child to this school."

    "I am so glad my children have gone to GCA for the past 7 yrs. GCA is blessed with a wonderful principal and intelligent, caring, kind and fun teachers. The class size is small (over 10, less than 20 mostly) and the kids get plenty of individual attention. The KG through 3rd grade classrooms in particular are somewhat small. But the campus is beautiful and quaint. Children who go there feel like part of a family. They have a Terrific music program. Sports program is good, but not exceptional. I saw that some reviewers mentioned that the parents felt the academic program was not challenging enough. My husband & I have been high performing students-valedictorians etc and have very successful careers. Based on my experience, I have to say, if your child is in the "gifted and talented" range then GCA might not be challenging enough for your child. But having been in G&T category before, I want my children to have a great learning experience, happy stress free childhood, have fun and really Enjoy learning and develop good friendships. Those requirements are more than met by GCA. Both my children are high performers and we couldn't be happier with GCA."

    "GCA is fantastic! It is also a great value! Solid academics, nurturing environment, and love of God make it a fantastic school. Both of my children are above grade level in their academics."

    "GCA is a great school! All of the 8th graders this year got into their first choice high schools (e,g., Hackley, Rye Country Day, Convent of Sacret Heart in Greenwich, Fordham Prep, Masters, and Good Counsel High School)."
