Affection

We view each child as a unique individual with unlimited potential to be a constructive member of society and child of God - one who can use his or her strengths to enrich the lives of others.

Education begins in the home where the foundation of good citizenship and kindness are laid by the parents. Our school works to expand those fundamental morals in students and apply them to all facets of life and academic development.

Activity

We provide spiritual guidance and inspire students to love the Lord, care for others, develop a sense of humble gratitude and become a valuable, happy member of their immediate and global community.

Service Learning

At Glenview New Church School we wholly believe in giving back to our community. We help our students to understand why service is so vital before their first endeavor. On a daily basis, students learn to be caring individuals, which in turn leads to a well-developed sense of empathy. Caring for others is a major tenet of our teaching philosophy—one that is closely aligned with our style of project and service-based learning. Whether we’re making blankets for sick children or growing vegetables to bring to the local food pantry, students are given multiple, wide-ranging opportunities for participating in charitable activities.

Glenview New Church After-School Enrichment classes and activities are available and open to all students from preschool through 8th grade. Enrichment activities rotate each quarter and include felting, George’s Gym Gymnastics, baking, science, crafts, and more. We believe exposing students to a variety of activities helps to not only develop their dexterity but their appreciation of God’s earth..
