The school houses Pre-Kindergarten 3 and 4 year olds, and grades kindergarten through 2.  Maximum class size is as follows: Pre-K 3 year olds is 18; Pre-K 4 year olds is 20; kindergarten is 25 and grades 1 through 8 is 30.

The faculty of seven teachers (including two Pre-K teachers) each have self-contained classrooms.  Teachers use a written, integrated curriculum that focuses primarily on Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics and Religion.  Basic concepts in Science and Social Studies are also taught beginning in kindergarten. The curriculum was written by GWCRS faculty members and is reviewed and changed as needed.

Music instruction, physical education, art and library skills are taught to students in grades K-2 once a week.  A remedial reading teacher works once a week with students who have reading difficulties.

All students attend Mass at least once a month at our host parish, Our Lady Queen of Martyrs.
