    Excellent school. They have a heart for there students (which I once was). The staff are all very kind and do everything they can to help each student succeed. I do not attend the church (although I have in the past and they were very nice). The school is a great institution focused on Biblical values and Biblical truths. They teach the Bible and challenge each individual to study themselves to know the truth of what God's Word says instead of believing the lies that the world wants you to believe. I would highly recommend the school as well as the church. There are very few like this one.

    I do not recommend this school or church for anyone. The church is not a house of god or even a decent consideration for any child's education. The majority of the guidelines and teachings of the church are about repressing woman and segregation of races. The preacher and staff misconstrue biblical passages to support their personal beliefs. The fact is the church endorses colleges that have little to no credentials. They insist that members disassociate themselves from friends and family members that do not follow the preachers personal beliefs.

    Gill grove is a small school that gives personal attention. There is an average of 6 kids per class I think. My child is learning a lot more than she would in public school. They use the Abecka program which is fairly advanced. They are strict baptist though so the dress code and some of the chapel lessons are a little 'old testament' but we seem to be having no problem as we reinforce our beliefs and how they differ slightly at home. We are hoping we are giving our child a good beginning foundation at Gill Grove. The small classroom can't be beat! They are very disciplined so there is time to teach unlike many schools I have heard about!
