Grand Rapids Christian High School Reviews

I really enjoyed and loved my time at Grand Rapids Christian High School. I really loved how there were so many opportunities to try new things and explore doing things you love. GRCHS offers a two week period called Winterim, where students are giving the choice of taking fun and informative classes, traveling across the country/ around the world, or getting real life experience at an internship in an area of interest. The school also had a great appreciation for not only academics, but also for athletics and the fine arts. Also, as it is a Christian school I was able to learn, question, explore, and grow my understanding of religion and grow my own personal faith. I loved my high school!

Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at GRCHS. The vast array of classes and opportunities have enriched my education for the better. I love how the teachers are very honest, sincere people whose desires are solely to benefit the students and encourage them on their way towards their futures.

One thing I'd change would be to use the lunch/office hours time better. This change will actually be made in the upcoming school year, which will help enrich the free time!

I would also like to see the food become healthier and in general better. At the moment, the lunches are rather stale tasting, although there's a good variety offered.
Great balance between academics and extra curriculums(sports, theatre, forensic, etc)
Many opportunity to get involved with the world (winter travel- explore, service, diversity, etc)
Teachers are engaged with students. They care and respect each students.
A little bit closed community. School try many things to embrace diversity and different cultures, however students tend to be half-hearted about international students and there is division between groups, since many of the students grew up together in the neighbor community for a long time have strong connection(comfort zone) and be afraid(or not interested) to step out of it.
