This is our first year at this school and we absolutely love it! Both my kids are excelling in every subject. This school is truly focused on developing amazing character and high level academics! The students are very respectful to staff, parents and each other. The teachers and administration are all great! When enrolling I was slightly concerned with the rating being a 6... However I now know that they strive to teach the kids and actually want them to understand the academic concepts rather than just focusing on memorizing problems in order to get high test scores. I feel as if so many schools nowadays just focus on their rating rather than the kids best interest. This school has such an incredible heart for kids! It's unique and refreshing! So glad we found this school that has such a small town "everybody knows your name" environment!
My son's teacher has been such a positive influence. I believe his teacher has helped guide our son during a crucial turning point in his life.
Imagine West Gilbert We are the grandparents of two students, one elementary, one middle school. Our other grandchildren have all matriculated thr9ough Catholic K-12--your school ranks higher in our estimation.
My daughters started this school 2 years ago and we have had such a great experience. My youngest was in the Pre-k 3 and 4 program, and it was excellent. My daughter loved school and made "best friends". Going to different centers in the valley, she never had actually liked going to "school", but she LOVED Imagine. The teachers are wonderful and she learned so much. They wanted her to be at school so they could prepare her for Kindergarten. And she is well prepared, she is already learning how to read sight words, and can write her name first and last in upper and lower case. My oldest started in Kindergarten and her teacher was phenomenal (Mrs. Push). She also loved going to school. First grade for her was a little challenging, but nothing that effected her grades or performance. We had to move due to work, and going into public school now, I can really appreciate now how great the education is at Imagine. Every school has its quirks, but for us the pros outweighed the cons. It really is like a family, its a smaller community of people, which we will miss.
I find this school to be caring and understanding of working mom's they work with you in every area pretaining to your child's learning and education. They take the time to listen to the parent and the child in all sitution. The teachers here want to teach so it makes the kids want to do good. The teacher here care about there students, worry about there students. The teacher also teach the children to respect each other and to be better citizen.
My daughter has gone to preschool here for 2 years now and she loves it. As a parent I love that she is excited to go to school and learn. She comes home every day telling every one who will listen what she learned in school and how much fun she has. All the staff and teachers we have had contact with have be helpful and caring. They all seem to love the kids and their jobs!. I have and will recommend this school to other parents.
I think this school is AMAZING! My daughter has been attending Imagine @ West Gilbert for 2 years and I am so happy we switched schools. I love the weekly communication with teachers. If I am unable to make it to any school events the teachers keep the communication open by either email or simply calling me. My daughters current teacher also offers free tutoring, which has really helped improve her test scores. I would definitely recommend this school to any family!
My son started out this year in the Pre K program and he has learned so much the teachers and staff are excellent! I love this school and can't wait for my daughter to attend!
We have been here since Pre-K...now in 3rd grade. My daughter loves the school and has always progressed year after year. We love the family atmosphere and I feel like my child is loved by the staff and nurtured through her education process.
I am severely disappointed in this 'school'. Before enrolling your child, do your homework. This institution is run like a business. Children are dollar signs,best practices are not used, teachers are not certified (ask to see updated resumes-they are legally bound to have them available to parents), and their AIMS scores are in the toilet. Don't let Imagine babysit your kids. Enroll them elsewhere for any kind of education.
My child has been attending Imagine West Gilbert for 3 years. The teachers are very thoughtful and friendly. The curriculum is right on point for my daughter's needs. One major improvement I would like to see at the school is a more effective parking and drop/off pick up situation.
Imagine offers quality education. We have been at Imagine for 5 years and love it! Every teacher that my boys have had has truly cared about them. It is very easy to communicate with the teachers and staff. Imagine is very welcoming of parent involvement. Although, they never push you or make you feel guilty if you can't volunteer. My children are honor roll students and continue to be challenged academically. Once they master a skill, they are given more advanced assignments. Learning never becomes stagnant.
We have been at Imagine for two years. The staff is wonderful. The teachers are caring and take an individualized approach to each child. I see a lot of positive reinforcement and my child has developed a love for learning as a result. The emphasis the school places on good character makes for a nice student body too. I love that my kid enjoys school and I am amazed at how much she has learned in this well rounded environment.
Before coming to this school my daughter hated school, and was stressed out all the time. Since we made the change this year she has grown immensely, and I no longer have to fight with her to go to school in the morning. Her teacher is very caring, and best of all understands that all kids are individuals and treats them as such.
I chose this school using this website and emailing the Dean of Students due to moving here from another state. The Dean was very informative and answered all my questions as well as holding a spot for my 3 children since we were a week late for the start of school. The school year is almost over and I can't say enough good things about this school. Pre-k has been lots of fun for my 4 year old and she is starting to read simple words already. My first grader has excelled academically and socially as well. She is reading chapter books and learning so much about herself and her character. My son who is in seconds grade was the one I was worried about after having a not so good first grade experience at his previous school. His teacher has been an angel who has helped him in everyway possible. She is just an awesome teacher and she helped my son set goals and achieve them, she understands his crazy behaviors that can sometimes get him in trouble and deals with them in a caring and fair way. He has made me so proud of him this year and all the things he has learned and overcome! This is because of Imagine school and his teacher, who was voted teacher of the year!
I have three children in this school and they have done great. They love their teachers and their teachers keep them challenged. I love that the school has a program that helps the students learn good character as well as helping them achieve their educational goals.
I have two daughters that attend Imagine West Gilbert. I couldn't be happier with the individualized education they are receiving. Both of my girls are doing exceptionally well and thriving due to the amazing teachers, staff and overall environment. I would, and do, recommend Imagine to anyone who is looking for a great school.
We have had our children enrolled at Imagine West Gilbert since our oldest was in pre-k 3. We love the teachers that we have had, they are dedicated to educating our children. Many parents are willing to help out and that creates a community feeling.
Imagine at West Gilbert is a very great school with high academic standards with high quality teahers and staff.
We have been a family of IWG for 4 years now. The education and the passion of the teachers / faculty is superb. We highly recommend IWG!
