    This is our second year at Goodpasture and we love it! My daughter loves the Christian environment and the wonderful faculty. We are so thankful for this amazing school!

    My wife and her siblings went to GCS 1st - 12th grade and I have personally seen the fruit of that Christian education first hand. Both of my children (9th & 5th grade) have attended Goodpasture since kindergarten and our experience has been nothing short of excellent in every area. I love how the school staff and families work together in creating an environment that helps to mold and fashion the hearts of Godly young men and women in the students in preparation for adulthood. With over 4.7 million given in scholarship money to last years graduating class I have no doubt that this is an investment in my children's future I will never regret. I would recommend Goodpasture Christian School without any hesitation to any parent seeking to give their children the very best in Christian education.

    FANTASTIC SCHOOL! Loving teachers. Loving students. Family feel. I highly recommend this school. I have two children there and I am a graduate of Goodpasture. This school has been consistent with the level of excellence that it puts forth.

    A great place to attend and work! I graduated from Goodpasture and began working at the school when my son began kindergarten. We have been extremely pleased with his teachers and the education he is receiving. I have been blessed to be apart of the school as a teacher and hope I will continue there for a long time. I highly recommend Goodpasture for a quality Christian education.

    My daughter will graduate next year and has been at Goodpasture since preschool. She will remember all the Goodpasture faculty and friends that supported her in every way every day so that she could be successful both academically spiritually and athletically. On a college application when asked to describe obstacles she had to overcome to be successful she said she had to be honest and admit that despite life's day-to-day hardships and stress she was completely blessed and fortunate to have been equipped with every means of support she could ever imagine having at Goodpasture. She said my parents family my school my teachers my coaches my church and my friends have done nothing but support encourage and provide all the paths for me to be successful. "All I had to do was work hard and take advantage by receiving their support." Most of the children at Goodpasture are truly blessed but you're doing something very right spiritually when they actually understand that.

    A wonderful school where students are given the opportunity to grow spiritually academically and socially.

    The environment is wonderful. It not only a safe Christian setting but also and friendly welcoming one. The faculty is knowledgeable kind and understanding. As an alumni and parent there isn't another school that I would choose for my children's education.

    My children were blessed to attend such a loving and caring school. This year due to popular demand Goodpasture opened up a program for students beginning with 12 months of age. It is already full along with the 3 year old classes 4 year old classes and kindergarten! The school must be doing a lot of things right because so many classes are completely full! Students in pre k through the 6th grade receive mandarin Chinese Spanish music art STEM lab technology lab library science time and much more! It is definitely worth the tuition! No school can please everyone but when the school's enrollment is actually up (over 900 students) from years past and waiting lists are started for several grades the school is obviously doing a LOT of things right! I would highly recommend Goodpasture Christian School! From babies to high school it has been an outstanding experience for my family!!

    Kindergarten is good with a happy loving environment but after that it's nothing more than a public school that charges a lot of money. The enrollment has apparently dropped so much that classes for babies are opening in the Fall. I guess they have to make their money somehow. If you're looking for a Christian atmosphere for your child look elsewhere you won't find it here. But on the bright side if your child is a bully and/or teachers pet or acts like they've never stepped foot inside of a church they will blend in beautifully at Goodpasture!

    We moved our children to Goodpasture when our oldest was entering middle school. We wanted a place where our children would be nurtured not only scholastically but strengthened in their faith as well. We visited other private schools and came away from Goodpasture with the overwhelming feeling that this was where our children needed to be. We have not been disappointed! Our children have flourished under the loving Christ-like care of their teachers. The faculty and teachers truly care about each child and know them by name. The quality of the technology has been greatly improved since we came and now is at a top-notch level. Just look at the ACT scores and scholarships that the graduates receive and you will see the quality that a Goodpasture education provides. Goodpasture is also strong in not only their sports but also in theater music and art as well as a variety of other extra curricular activities. Is it flawless? Of course not but what school is. We have always found that the teachers and principals are willing to listen and do what it takes to help the students succeed. We would recommend Goodpasture!

    I have had two students graduate from Goodpasture. I could not be more pleased with the academic program and the excellent role models the teachers have been to my son and daughter. Both of my children graduated with several hours of college credit completed. The school welcomes students of all faiths and loves each student unconditionally. I would highly recommend Goodpasture Christian School to any parent who desires a stellar academic program in a Christian environment. When you enter the campus you immediately feel a sense of warmth and happiness. I would not trade my children's experiences at Goodpasture Christian School for anything!

    I am an alumni and both of my chidren are currently enrolled at Goodpasture Christian School. We were looking for a preschool program for my oldest to attend 5 years ago and we visited a number of schools. Goodpasture was one of them and when we left the open house after visiting with the teachers my husband and I knew that we wanted our children here. I left there knowing my kids were going to be loved at school just as much as they are loved at home. The parental envolvement is awesome. The extra classes like art chineese plays that my children get to be a part of are great! They are challenged in the classroom and have full support from their teachers. I have read some of the other comments and Goodpasture is not flawless and yes mistakes can be made. The administration and faculity are only human and thank goodness we serve a forgiving God who does not pass judgement on our short commings. Who is there in the good and bad times. No one is perfect no school is perfect. I am glad we get to call Goodpasture Christain School home!

    My child is receiving an excellent education at Goodpasture. The staff is obviously committed to maintaining an excellent learning environment while consistently looking for ways to enhance my child's education. The classs sizes are small allowing the teachers to help students learn based on individual strengths. No school is perfect but Goodpasture is the perfect school for my child.

    Faculty and staff love the Lord and look at teaching at Goodpasture Christian School as their ministry. Strong Administrative team who care about individual students. Academically GCS is committed to providing outstanding educational opportunities for students who have varying learning styles.

    I absolutely LOVE this school. My mother went here when she was growing up so have all my cousins and now me and my siblings. The faculty shows such love for all of the students and really cares about their performance. Each grade has been together since kindergarden or preschool so they are very close. The entire atmosphere is more of a family environment than any other place I have seen. Your children wont have to worry about bullying or not finding a place to fit in and the staff is a great example fir leadership and christian attitudes. I truly recommend checking it out for yourself.

    It is an okay school for a cookie cutter child. God forbid your child is not the norm. Also Christian loving environment...HA! It is basically a public school with Church of Christ teachings. Very judgemental and narrow minded. I also taught community college for a bit. I had several students who were Goodpasture graduates. They were by no means ready for college. Very sad.

    This is an amazing and top-notch school!!! We chose it for our sons because of all the wonderful programs and cutting edge education. I am so impressed with the faculty especially the Leadership. From the Headmaster on- they truly care about my children. They have been true to their word and beyond; especially in accomadating our son with learning differences (and he is flourishing!). My children have never been happier. It is worth every penny.

    Pulled my child after 13 days. Absolutely the worst school. The staff do not do what they say they go back on their word. Look further if you are looking for a progressive education. This school has a very dated and confused attitude. The head master went back on his word to our family. Would not recommend to anyone!

    Goodpasture has a bad bullying problem. I am scared of what will happened if this problem is not taking care of and there is no plan in sight for that to happen.
