    I've been involved with WCGS since 1995. My wife was a 3rd grade teacher there for five years and our girls currently attend. Over these many years I've been nothing but impressed with the school. Academically it's a notch above the public schools in the area. Athletically their teams regularly beat the local schools. Their facilities are as good (if not better) than nearly all of the public schools in the area. But in the most important areas...(school culture peer influence teachers and administration and world view)...WCGS is in a class of its own. Unlike the public schools that try to indoctrinate our children in a completely secular world view WCGS approaches education through a biblical lens. The school does an excellent job of blending scripture and biblical teaching into all subjects. The teachers and staff pray with our kids regularly lead chapels conduct small groups and get to know them personally. I recognize tuition is not cheap but how can you put a price on the future of your child? For me it's clear. I'm willing to sacrifice whatever is needed for my kids to attend WCGS and greatly increase their chances of walking into adulthood as Christ-followers.

    WCGS is a God-send! We love this place and it's been perfect for our little boy. We can tell our son is influenced by a Christ-Centered education every day. Choosing WCGS was arguably the best decision we've made as a family and we know the affects are eternal. Thank you WCGS for providing a safe place for our kids with teachers & staff that love our children and the Lord.

    My children graduated from Wheaton Christian and had a wonderful foundation for serving the Lord in the pastorate and education. I loved being involved as a parent and am now looking forward to a grandchild starting this year. Having Christian principles and the Word of God that is taught at home reinforced daily in school in priceless.

    I love this school! I am so thankful our four daughters had the opportunity to attend here. My husband also attended many years ago. Besides the strong academics I especially appreciate the love and nurturing from all of the staff. I know that children and families are prayed for on a regular basis. It is truly a reflection of the family of God.

    Good school. Could be better without such a high turnover of teachers. The good ones tend to stay though. Great facilities.

    I have had a very poor experience with administration. The school is equipped with everything test scores are excellent but I have found much better caliber Christian elsewhere. I would never send my child there again and have been thrilled with their new Christian school where they don't just talk about doing God's will but they actually live it. I believe there are better private schools in the area.

    Wheaton Christian Grammar School is outstanding! They thoroughly follow their mission to 'train and nurture children toward godliness and excellence.' We have three children at WCGS beginning seven years ago. They teach to develop a biblical worldview in students. All the teachers regardless of their age are mature Christians who speak of their walk with Christ. Students are held to a high standard in academics and character. We are grateful for the positive role models that the facility are for our three children.

    My children both attended this school and it was outstanding. It really exceeded our expectations in preparation for high school and a nurturing Christian environment. Their teachers were amazing. Our kids made friends they still know and enjoy. I can't really think of anything we didn't like about Wheaton Christian Grammar School.

    I am thrilled with this school and the level of education all 3 of my kids are getting. I wouldn't want them anywhere else; the parents and children are involved included and encouraged on so many levels. Keep up the Great Work!

    We have enjoyed the school but have had issues with an under performing academic environment.

    I went to this school and just graduated and thought it was better than the public schools in my district. I liked some of the teachers but I disliked some as well. I think the quality of the school has recently gone down a bit. Overall though I had a good experience here. 4 out of 5 stars.

    We have had all three of our children attend this school and they have received an excellent education. Then we took them to our public high school and there was no educational gap between institutions. The teachers and staff really care about the kids their education and their eternal destiny.
