“My consultations with my primary MODG teacher provide motivation, direction, and accountability. She is very skilled at emphasizing the educational goals of the school and in evaluating the progress of each student on a regular basis. She makes sure that the work is getting done and that the goals are being met.... I have watched my children grow spiritually and intellectually. I attribute much of this success to the methodology and curriculum that MODG employs. Having well thought out lesson plans with clear educational goals is invaluable to me. The daily plan and goals give structure to the day and confidence in the overall soundness of the education the children are receiving. Mother of Divine Grace has helped my children become self-motivated, independent learners.”
