I wouldn't trade my children's time at Grace Lutheran School for anything! My kids couldn't get out of the car fast enough each morning, were always wanting to stay past pick up time and often mentioned their teachers by name when at home. They even requested their teachers to be present for their birthday parties. The staff at Grace is always pleasant, professional, and always concerned with my children's health and happiness. From Ms. Billie in the baby room, to Ms. Bobbie and Ms. Brittany in the 3year old room and Ms. Jenna's stellar Transitionsl Kindergarten program. (I have heard Montgomery ISD teachers can pick TK students out based on their above average academic preparation, social skills and classroom manners)Several of the staff members have their CDA's or are certified teachers and all teachers have to meet the licensing standards of 20 in service hours per year (I know this because I researched it once when enrolling my children and onece during their enrollment)The office staff was always eager to great the children when they arrived and answer any questions I had.What a gem and resource Grace has in the Director of the school? Ms. Howard-Browne always had the best interest of my children in mind when making decisions concerning, their care, move ups to different classes and the academic needs of each individual child. She also instructs the children of the school during daily chapel time each morning. My kids would sings "This Little Light Of Mine" on the way home from school (even my two year old)The school was (at the time of my children's enrollment last year) using the ABeka curriculum and Handwriting Without Tears. And both of my kids were totally prepared to entered the public school arena. I felt compelled to write this review on behalf of Grace after reading the above review which obviously is from a disgruntled parent or someone who wouldn't be pleased at any school. In my 6 years association with Grace and Joleen Howard Browne there was not one single incident that I questioned or didn't feel totally at peace with. As for the Christian environment... My kids RECITE bible verses. My kids sing praise songs, My kids KNOW Jesus died on the cross. My kids KNOW Christmas is a celebration of Jesus' birth!! They learned all that and so much more at Grace and for that our family is grateful and blessed.Please don't hesitate to check out this wonderful shool based on one negative review! Pop in and see for yourself.
My daughter went to Grace for 2 years. I've got nothing but good things to say about the school and church. The staff was always friendly and a few of them even baby sit for me personally now. The meals were kid friendly and yummy. The things my daughter learned went above and beyond normal daycare. Grace presents themselves as a school more than a daycare and that is very attractive. I never worried about the care she was receiving as I knew in my heart all the teachers loved my daughter and all the other children there as if they were their own.Ms. Joleen is fun, witty, and knows exactly how to run that school and staff. Not only that, she LOVES all the children. The school offers, dance, tumbling, library hour, daily chapel and many more extras that my daughter took advantage of. I recommend this school to all my neighbors and friends with NO hesitation. They really are the best in the area.
