Welcome to the Glenview New Church School
The Glenview New Church School offers a high-quality education for children from preschool through fifth grade. Its overall mission is to help prepare children to be useful citizens in this world and in the life to come. We view each child as a unique individual with tremendous potential for loving God and enriching the lives of others.
We believe that education begins in the home where the parents or guardians lay the foundations of good citizenship and kindness. GNCS seeks to partner with parents/guardians, helping to support, strengthen, and augment what each child receives at home, in addition to offering an academic experience that prepares them for high school and beyond.
The role of our school is to provide appropriate lessons and learning experiences that enable students to understand the world around them. We also provide spiritual learning that inspires love of the Lord and love of other people. Each of these things happens under the umbrella of the Two Great Commandments* and the Golden Rule**–principles which we see as guiding beacons for the life of every child under our care.
*Jesus said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first and great commandment. And the second, like it, is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:28-31; Matthew 22:36-38)
**Jesus said, “Whatever you want people to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:12)
