The teachers and staff are the best and so sweet and a safe and fun place for children wouldn't change a thing.
AMAZING!!! Have 1 child in center base and 1 about to be home based. All the staff is wonderful with the children and my daughter has so much fun and loves to tell me what they did that day. Love to see her love school
I think this is an absolutely wonderful school system that has an excellent curriculum and staff at the GC South school! I'm a very proud supporter and I'm happily to be a part of it as a parent. I love the meetings we have and wish more parents could make it to them. As a whole I believe we can make our children just as proud of us as we are of them! It's truly ALL about the betterment of our children and their education!
