Gale Elementary School 2

We have attended Gale since kindergarten and my child is in 3rd grade. it has had its up and downs this year with principal change, fundraisers changed, etc. My daughter is happy for the most part but the lack of communication, notice given, and follow up frustrates me. It has slowly gotten better throughout the year but there is still progress to be made. Most of the teachers are wonderful for the lack of resources they have. We have had great teachers over the years, this year was a bit of a let down. The PTC board seems to be their own click, have their own agenda and does not do what benefits the school as a whole, just the select amount of them. I was told by one board member, if htey are the ones doing the volunteering, then it should be what is best for them, "as they do the most for the school". Many parents, because of the mentality of this board, have chosen to not be active with events and fundraisers, but just as volunteers in class rooms and field trips. The overall attitude of the school has changed, not for the better. This is our home school and we will stick with it, but hoping for positive changes to come!

My grandson goes to pre- school at Gale. I was impressed with the new student/parent orientation and how attention there was. My grandson looks forward to school each day and is proud of his take home work. He was developmently behind but I see great strides and improvments. He still has a way to go but I confident he'll be ready for what lies ahead.

Gale elemtary is an excellent school. The new principal was given a lot of change without much notice. She has risen to the occasion and introduced the OMA program and has hired a new PE teacher. The teachers are outstanding and offer an excellent education.

Gale Elementary is absolutely wonderful!! I am so pleased with the new administration, teachers and facility! I really enjoy the new principal and look forward to seeing what the year will bring. Both my children wake up every morning extremely excited to be going to school and wonder why they are unable to go every day, including weekends!! I As a parent, my ONLY concern is my children's happiness and if they enjoy learning! Gale has provided the love of learning to my children in a very special way!

Gale is an amazing environment for our daughter - she loves it, and we couldn't be happier. Stellar leadership and faculty, wonderful programs (thanks to the Parent-Teacher Club) and a beautiful facility.

I love Gale!!! This is my daughters 3rd year at Gale. The teachers and the principal are very involved. The PTC is great and everyone works hard to provide a great learning environment. You can be as involved as a parent as you would like and all the teachers I have had so far have an open door policy and encourage the involvement of the parents. I am glad my daughter attends gale and I wish I would have know about Gale when my oldest daughter was in elementary.

We are so impressed so far with Gale! My son is in Kinder with Ms Schlak and loves her so much! The principle is awesome too. She will answer any and all questions you have and will respond promptly to emails. It is amazing that this school is able to function as well as it does with the madness that is TUSD. The parent involvement is also high at this school. I have high hopes that my son will continue to do well in this high expectations/excelling school!
