    GCCS is losing good teachers and administrators at an alarming rate! The school is being run by the church (Grove City of the Nazarene) and decisions are being made that are not necessarily in the best interest of the school. The high school has had 3 prinicipals resign in the last 5 years - clearly something is wrong with the administration of the school.

    GCCS is no longer the cutting-edge academic institution it once was. The once small school has morphed into a school who has lowered its standards lost faith in its teachers and totally overlooked what makes a great principal (at least in the high school). The current high school principal is rarely seen in the halls avoids parental meetings fails to support his staff doesn't know the students' names and has no principal licensure. If you are considering enrolling your child in the elementary or middle school speak to others whose children are in those particular schools. If your child is a high schooler keep searching for a strong school...the GCCS high school is not it.

    We love GCCS because of our wonderful ever caring teachers and staff. They teach with such compassion not only academics but they help our students develop the grace and spirit needed to be successful in our ever changing world. Our athletics department is second to none creating great opportunties for our students to be recognized by some of the best colleges in the country. There is so much to learn in 12 short years at GCCS you get it all!

    My children have attended this school since kindergarten. I think the school is going through growing pains and has misrepresented their curriculum opportunities. I am saddened and disappointed. I cannot recommend this school to others.

    My child has learned so much at this school. He enjoys weekly chapel and learns valuable lessons about living a Christian life. I know the teachers sacrifice salary to stay and teach at GCCS. I appreciate them!

    My child currently attends GCCS and it has been an experience!! The academic program seems to challenging and stimulating to my child. The Christian teachings have been wonderful and are taught as they apply to life - in the past present and future! The difficult part for my family has been accepting that just because one claims to be a Christian does not necessarily make it so - as we have experienced negative comments and treatment from some of the staff! It is important for my child to know that he/she has value - not to be judged by adults who profess to be Christians. Jesus himself said 'Suffer not the little children...'

    It is AWESOME!!!! All of my friends go there and we get along well. It is a Christain school so you learn about God and Jesus everyday! It is a very good school.Excepet for the fact that we have to wear uniforms.

    As parents of 2 soon to be 3 children at GCCS we thoroughly love it! I could not imagine my kids going anywhere else. My children are in pre-k k & 3rd grades. They adore their teachers and even the principal! Now if that doesn't tell you something I don't know what will. Anyway I have read the previous reviews and I respect everyone's opinion. However life at GCCS is calm forgiving and nurturing. On the flip side those in authority are respected not out of fear but because they have earned it. They are diligently growing their sports programs. Although I am not a fan of any sport I think it's great that the school is more academically focused rather than sports focused. After all knowledge is what will get one through life. The church portion of the school just closed out their first UPWARD! program for the little ones.

    I have attended GCCS since kindergarden and i am currently a freshman. i was given the oppertunity to leave GCC and i immediatly said no. this is the best school ever. everyone is so close to each other; its almost like we are family. Our acedemics are strong and i feel challenged everyday to do better by the teachers. OUr athletics are also a strong respect; we have developing sports teams that are growing everyday and extraordinary coaches that make us strive to do our possible best. THe Fine Arts area is such a good part of our school; sadly there are few students that have the courage to sing in choir or radical obedience play in band (whether it be marching jazz or concert) play handbells or paint/sculpt draw a masterpiece. There are very talented and inspirational students attending this fine school.Gccs is my home.

    I flee that GCCS focusses to much on athletics and not enough on academics. There are better Christian school in Ohio that are more academic oriented.

    Every cent I spend living on less to provide my child's education at GCCS have been worth it. The teachers send out weekly updates and all papers in 'Friday folders' in elementary school. My child is challenged beyond what her respective public school currently expects. Best of all the staff is supportive listens helps and prays over each child like they were the number one priority. Admiministration -great! Only complaint- The Music programs are quite weak. ( Elementary music is almost all rote learning and doesn't come close nor try for the quality of the local schools in this area. I appreciate the Bible knowledge my child receives. My child and her friends are building Biblical character -respect moderation self control...these are lost in public school today.

    I attended this school for middle and high school and now that I have a child of my own I can't wait for her to be able to attend. I know she'll receive an excellent education here and she'll be more than prepared for college when she graduates.

    As a grand parent of two stuents attending GCCS I have the highest regards for the leadership of the school and for the teachers who teach the children not only the subjects matter requried by the state but also teach them in such a matter that God and the Bible is brought out directly and indirectly on all that they do

    Grove City Christain School is like a large family all living under the same roof. We have our ups and downs but in the end we all love each other. GCCS is my home.

    While I do not believe that it is possible for a school to be perfect GCCS is very close. It currently has a fairly new Administrative Staff that is growing each day. While I feel that it is very good right now I believe that it will only get better in time. GCCS has made a commitment to grow its sports and music departments as well. This is evident with the recent addition of a football team and a financial commitment to build a new stadium. The most gratifying aspect of GCCS is how secure I am with the high level of learning they receive from the quality staff.

    GCCS provides a quality education and has quality students. My child was not being challenged at her public school and is now with a group that keeps her striving. The kids are very kind and almost all are on honor roll. They are currently expanding the sports programs and have extremly involved parents(sometimes too involved!)overall a very good school.

    My daughter loved going to GCCS. The teachers were very hands on and she felt very connected. I would highly reccommend Grove City Christian to any parent who is considering enrolling their child.

    I love this school! I have 2 daughters who are now in 4th and 6th grade. The staff is excellent! They really are very caring for your children. Parental involvement is high which gives the teacher more time to focus on teaching. I am happy with this school!

    This is our son's first year at GCCS and it has been terrific. He attended Maranatha Christian until it closed and we were apprehensive about starting a new school. But our apprehension was groundless and we praise the Lord for allowing our son to attend this wonderful school. The academics are challenging the student body welcoming to new students and the staff caring and dedicated. No school will ever be perfect nor will its staff or students but GCCS is tops in our opinion.
