Glad Tidings is a good value for the amount you spend and the education your child receives. I absolutely loved the curriculum. To be honest I was hesitant about sending my child there because the school is in a bad part of town but I never felt unsafe within the boundaries of the school itself. This is a no frills type of school and the extra-curriculur could be better but the academic piece is second to none. In Kindergarten my child had individual reading exams, a writing class, special instruction for grammer. I can't say enough about the academics. Parents from all over the metro who are serious about their child's education but don't want to pay or can't pay the Barstow or Notre Dame fees send their children here and are pleased with what they recieve. I highly recommend it for those that can look past it's location.

Glad Tidings is an awesome school and has a great ciriculum. The education my daughters received there is invaluable!! Their teachers now are amazed at how much they know at their age and how advanced they are. They give children an excellent foundation and a rich heritage!

I love this Center the administrator Mrs. Frazier Really cares and takes your child's education and wellbeing to heart. My daughter is 3yrs old and knows her colors and can count as high as 20!! She is very excited when she recites the Books of the Bible and the Pledge of allegience. She takes so much pride in showing me what she has learned each day.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
