Grace's relationship with the community, tenure of the teachers and director, embrace of families and complete focus on the qualities of each child have made it a magical first school experience for my daughter. Quite a special place, a haven in the city.

My two daughters have attended Grace. It is a wonderful and magical place where young children get to be kids that explore, learn and grow. As a parent, you feel a part of it and love to watch your young child become more of the person they are ... Our family will miss Grace when our youngest graduates from kindergarten. I have looked at many schools in Brooklyn and Grace's prgrams surpass most, if not all. The teachers have been there for the most part forever. There is a sense of consistency and tradition.

Four of my grandchildren attended Grace Church School. It is the most loving school atmosphere imaginable. The needs of each child is met. Through creative projects they learn so much and are prepared to compete in any school. I hope your child is accepted into Grace.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
