I like this school because of its diversity. The students are from all walks of life and their diversity is respected and celebrated. I am always welcomed when I show up to the school unannounced. Surprise! The children seem very happy and respectful of each other and their environment. The girls bathroom could use an update (that's why I gave 4 instead of 5 stars). I am a grandmother and care as much for the social development as the academic development of my grandbabies. Imagine West Gilbert delivers.
I have been working at Imagine West gilbert for 4 years. I started as an aide and now am a 2nd grade teacher. I have never worked at a school where the mission/vision mimics my personal beliefs. I am a firm believer in teaching character and responsibility and I can do that on a daily basis. I am allowed to do what is best for kids to succeed and encouraged to grow as a tescher. This school is warm and welcoming to all who enter. I love the small two feel of my school!!
We have been part of Imagine for several years. The teachers work so hard to meet student's needs. They genuinely care and they know all students not just the tudents in their classroom. Both my kids have learned so much. They have done wonderful academically and socially. The communication is beyond incredible i always know what's going on. We couldn't be happier!!
We are extremely happy with our daughter's teacher. She has awesome classroom management skills. The students always know what is expected of them. She has been very encouraging and always acknowledges our daughter's successes. She treats her students with the respect they deserve.
I am a former teacher at this school and still send my son. The quality of education he gets surpasses many of the surrounding schools. The teachers and staff truly care about each individual student. I have and will continue to recommend Imagine!
I cannot say enough great things about Imagine West Gilbert! My son is in first grade and he absolutely loves going to school every day! He loves that they "learn a lot" and do a lot of fun activities. I love that we get data binders each week that allow me to stay involved in what he is learning and how he is performing. Each student is treated like an individual and teachers strive to meet their individual needs.
What an awesome school! Both of my children attend Imagine West Gilbert. I am very impressed with the academic rigor and the loving and caring attitude of the teachers and staff. My son has made incredible progress this year compared to the old school they attended. Communication with parents is fantastic. Both of my children s teachers use email extensively and are always available to speak with. The school has a lot of great activities from amazing assemblies celebrating student success, to a fall festival and school nights at local restaurants. I had the opportunity to go to the Veterans Day celebration this year and was blown away at the sense of community and student involvement displayed. I have never seen this level of commitment in a school to develop students not just academically but into successful members of society. They also have a wonderful before and after care program that allows my children to complete homework and be in a safe caring environment until I pick them up after work. I would HIGHLY recommend Imagine West Gilbert to anyone looking for a quality school for their children.
Imagine West Gilbert is a wonderful school and it is a second home for my daughter where she enjoys being and feels safe. We love her teacher and all the staff there because they are so welcoming and attentive to our family's needs.
