    Dr. Herbert Guice has provided my children with an awesome foundation in education. My children are thriving in Middle school and High school. I love the small family oriented community.

    Guice Christian Academy is one of the best private schools in the Bay Area offering students a well rounded education within their community. Students learn how to take pride in themselves and their community. They also are given skills to compete in a global market. My five children have gone through the academy and have found academic success in middle and high school while maintaining high standards of excellence.

    My children are currently students at Dr. Herbert Guice Christian Academy and I am more than happy to provide a review of the school. My children are participating in the city wide oratorical which is held annually and they have been asked to share what they have learned over the years at many engagements including the Black History program for Bart and the Golden State Warriors. They receive Christian education as an added bonus this is in addition to the 3R's and a foreign language. I am confident that the education they are receiving now is preparing them for high school and life.

    My son attended this school from grades K-3. His kindergarten through 2nd grade years were great. My son fell behind in a classroom that was out of control behaviorally with no support for the teacher (who was a good teacher) from administration.

    My daughter has been attending Guice since kindergarten. Academically the school is excellent. Taking polls from parents of children who attend other schools I've found that she is at least a year beyond her current grade level. The school is still being established and as a result extra curricular activites are slim. There is a music program but no sports or other activities. Parent involvement is about 50/50 as the school is small and very family oriented.

    My son attended Herbert Guice Christian Academy in his kindergarten year. I really like the school. The staff provides a wonderful support base and they do have an excellent curriculum. I personally would rate the school at a B- because my son didn't get as motivated as I expected him to as a kindergartner even though I tried at home to encourage and uplift him it seems more focus was placed on children who have a natural gift to learn.
