Meet the Beals - A Grace Lutheran School Family

Over the next few weeks, we are going to be hearing from Grace Lutheran School families about their experience with the school. This week, we start with the Beals, who have a 7th grader, 3rd grader, and 1st grader at Grace. 

When did you first join Grace Lutheran School?

We joined Grace in 2012 when our son entered JK.

Why did you choose Grace Lutheran School for your children?

When we were looking for a [school] option, we came to realize that many families (including close friends) send their kids to Grace, and we loved that our local and school communities would overlap. All those that we spoke to that were already Grace families loved the school!

What do you love most about Grace Lutheran School?

The amount of trust I have in all aspects of the school. I trust the teachers, I trust the administration, I trust that decisions being made are fully vetted, thoughtful, and in the best interest of the children of Grace. I trust that those at Grace “do the right thing”, even when it isn’t easy.

What would you tell another parent who may be considering enrolling their child at Grace Lutheran School?

I would tell them of our experiences at Grace with all of our children. That as a parent, I’ve always felt heard. I feel that Grace has always instituted a collaboration between parents, teachers, and administration. We’re all in this together.
