“I have been with GMCS for 6 years now, and I love it now as much as I did at the very beginning. The staff is warm & welcoming. The environment for the students is encouraging and accepting. I love this school so much, I only wish they had a secondary 7-12th grade school so my kids could continue to stay with this amazing school past 6th grade! 😊”
