    I couldn't be happier my girls are recieving the best education I can possibly give them. My youngest is a bit of a handful to say the least and the teachers and principle work with her not against her. I have noticed positive changes in her recently and I have the staff at Walnut Grove to thank.

    My child returned here after attending public school. He had to catch up a little from the public school curriculum but is doing great here. The teachers and staff are all heart and devoted to the kids. I love seeing my child getting up with a smile eager to go to school everyday and coming home with a smile. Not only is he getting a better education in subjects but also learning life lessons about respect and honor. We love this school!

    My two children have attended this school for two years and I am very pleased with this school. The school offers a Godly education with a very supportive staff. My son has autism and the teachers and other staff members do not discriminate against him. The children in his class are very kind supportive and do not bully my special son. My children are very safe attending this school regardless of what the media has stated about the former daycare. Ms. Williamson the principal is the most supportive and involved principal I have ever seen. I feel safe allowing my children attend this school. They are receiving an education that is both challenging and Biblical. As a parent I could not ask for more. When I moved in PA I prayed for the perfect school for my children and God definitely answered my prayers.

    We've been here for years and our youngest son is just getting ready to enter kindergarten next year so we will be here for many more! We absolutely LOVE this school. The A Beka Curriculum is fantastic. The traditional teaching methods and common sense style is wonderful. My wife works at another local charter school and feels that the kids are easily two years ahead by the time they leave. The availability of music and sports activities as well as the strong Christian foundation make this school one of the best kept secrets in the area. Every staff member is personal invested in the mission to know love and teacher your children. It's more like family than school.

    We have been blessed to find a school that isn't afraid to teach children the importance of knowing God. All the teachers and workers there are wonderful helpful and friendly. My daughter has learned so much in the short time she has been there and I look forward to her future there.

    As a grandmother I am very pleased that my granddaughter is getting a well-rounded and Christian education. I will be attending her Christmas Play this weekend and I know Christ will not be kept out of Christmas!

    My son as well as the sons and daughters of my friends received an excellant education at Walnut Grove. The teachers are committed to teachering toward each child's development and praying for their needs. Our children have all graduated near the top of their college classes now. The excellant foundation they received at WGCS is largely responsible.

    This school has been great with my children. They have been getting a great education and learning good morals to become good citizens in society. The classes are small and the children get a lot of one on one attention. There are extra activities such as band and soccer for the students to participate in.

    Walnut Grove Christian School is an excellent school that offers a superior Christ-centered education. The principal and teachers strive to form a personal relationship with each and every child as well as the parents. There are Wednesday evening activities for the children and a very popular soccer program. The class sizes are small so each child receives individual attention. At Walnut Grove every child is special.

    This school is horrible! I was very dissapointed in the education my child recieved. This school is not worth the money. The teachers segregate kids who can't sit still in class (Kindergarden 1st grade). Hello! 5-7 year olds are not going to sit still for more than 5 minutes! I will never send another child there.

    I was disappointed in the academics and activities available. Classes had just a few children and were sparse. My children weren't challenged and I felt they got behind.

    Walnut Grove Christian School has given my children an exceptional education that far exceeds the academics of the public schools. Walnut Grove not only provides outstanding academics but also a loving Christian environment.

    Walnut Grove is an inspirational school. Academics are outstanding. The teachers and principal are highly skilled and bring out the best in each child.
