    I was skeptical when I first enrolled my son in the kindergarten sometimes kids don't adjust well. But all in all it was a good fit and I am proud of the success he's made thus far.

    I absolutely love this school and the staff! I am so glad that my daughters attend this school! With all the trouble that is corrupting the school systems I can honestly say it doesn't occur at Grovepark. The academics as well as the extra-curricular programs is exceptional!
