Middle School

The Middle School is departmentalized with subject area experts in each discipline. The classrooms are equipped with either a Promethean interactive white board or a document camera. Middle School students are issued their own Chromebook computer as part of the middle school curriculum. Our hands-on approach to learning includes curriculum enhancing field trips, and science labs. Download the Middle School Handbook HERE.

Standardized Testing

In order to compare student achievement to a broader range of national standards we administer the Iowa Test of Basic Skills. On average our students place in the 80th percentile nationally. You may view Grace Christian Test Scores here.


In addition to our regular physical education program, we offer an extra-curricular sports program after school. Our after school sports program is an extension of the day school’s academic program.

The after school sports program continues to maintain our goal of educating our students with the highest standards in a Christ-centered environment. We hope to teach and exemplify Christian values of sportsmanship, cooperation, teamwork and commitment. As well as to help foster friendships, provide leadership opportunities, and help our students develop a positive attitude toward sports and athletic competition.

All interested students in the seventh and eighth grade will be given the opportunity to participate in the after school sports program.
