"such an amazing place for kids......I recommend every parent to visit this place before they register their kid at other schools because this place is cheaper and the quality of education is way better than many of the expensive schools near Cleveland area. I loved it and thanks for quality of time provided for my kids."

"...skipping kindergarten was the right thing for [Jakob]. And in first grade, he is completing second grade language arts and second grade math, and he is reading at the fifth grade reading level... ...without the foundation of Faith for two years, that would not have been possible. [Faith] teachers helped make that all possible for him. He has been successful and happy at Gilmore and we appreciate all your help.
