I recommend Granada to everyone! This school is amazing! My son learned so much. He is 3 years old and is writing his name. He is also able to sound out words. The teachers are amazing. I have to leave my child in before school care and the teachers are very loving and attentive to his needs. The new curriculum is fantastic! My son has learned so much. I can't wait for next year. I highly recommend this school.

What a wonderful school. My son attended this school from age three through kindergarten. It was a wonderful experience for him. Why? First, the loving personal atmosphere made transition from home into school painless. Second, the teaching staff love the children and they are also excellent educators. Third, the community of the school is strong and vibrant. Many amazing friendships emerged for our son and our family. The spiritual life of this community is amazing. There is such support and love.

This school was amazing before the new administration took over last year. All of the great teachers and staff are now gone and what is left is a rinky-dinky day care. No enrichment programs during the day anymore and no kindergarten. The heart and soul of the school was the director Beth Travis who retired. The new administration does not care about the teachers or the families, only money, that is why they rented part of the building out to a charter school. The new director does not know any of the students names and does not participate in school activities such as Chapel. The morale of the remaining staff is very low, lots of new and inexperienced teachers. It is not worth the price the parents pay to keep our children there, I pulled my son out after seeing all of these changes. I would not recommend this school to anyone anymore. It used to be a second home, it is simply not the same place.

I am a very picky parent since I have been an inspector with the Dept. of Health / Child Care Division in Washington DC. The center is well ran, good child-teacher interaction, good parent-teacher communication, clean, loving & Christian teaching. Two year old is currently attending. Kindergartener Graduated.

This school is highly rated by parents, it is a good school, but it is not geared to work with the child, but rather to have the child work to fit the school structure..the teacher-student ratio is poor..classroom are overcrowded,..the school has areas which warrant improvement.

Although this is a wonderful school, it is not really for children of working parents. The after-school program has only about 25 students out of over 150 that attend the school, and unless the kids are attending an activity by an outside vendor such as ballet or soccer, there is no programmed activity during this time. The grand majority of the students get picked up early. Also, the student teacher ratio is low due to art, computer, music & other subject teachers- not due to class size. The low ratio is misleading since the class size is actually higher than that of other schools in the area.

Excellent academically, very organized, very committed teachers, loving/tender environment but with discipline. Emphasis on Christian values but not excessive. It's a wonderful school all around.

Very good day school program. Children are invlolved in many activities. I especially like the art and music programs. Alot of extra curricular activities brought to the school for additional learning. Parent involvement highly encouraged. Afterschool program although good, I feel could be better.

GDS is everything I wanted for my 2 year old. GDS is not set up as a day care. It provides an actual cirriculum in a classroom setting. The students enjoy the benefit of a low teacher/student ratio. The cirriculum includes centers, art, music, library, and computers, among other things. The school also offers a wide array of extra-cirricular activies including sports, dance and languages. The school's staff is very caring of the children, providing all the nurturing and love needed at this stage of their lives. Not only are the children sincerely loved, but they are taught about discipline and respect for themselves as well as others, all the while maintaining God at the center of their lives. The children are treated as individuals and as such are prepared academically at their own pace. The school environment,surrondings and classrooms are all conducive to learning & enjoying this early academic experience!

Our son is in Pre-K3, and we are extremely happy with the school (as is our son), its teachers and the education being provided. The school offers a variety of extracurricular activities, including soccer, tennis, and spanish classes (just to name a few). We recently moved to Miami and were forunate enough to discover this school by accident. It is definitely Coral Gables' best kept secret.

My daughter started Started granada in PK-3. I have been very pleased with this school. She is currently in Pk-4. They have a very well structured program that includes Art, Music, Chapel, gardening, cooking, library, and computer lab. Class size is never more than 20 students. There is always a Teacher and a teacher's aid. Some classes have been as small as 12. This school goes up to kindergarten. They focus on the child and on group socialization. Parental involvement is very high at this school. Everyone knows one another and takes part in activities. I feel this school has provided My daughter with a very healthy start in her academic career.
