This school has gone from great to poor in the last 3 years. I've been waiting on the ridiculous transfer protocols set by Clovis Unified. There are some teachers there that do not care about the kids, do not help foster and guide kids toward succeeding. Students are not motivated to learn the "old" traditional way of seat work when students should be embracing common core. The teacher and administrator take no ownership or responsibility to help students succeed. They blame it back on the students and parents. When parents reach out, they are not supportive. I can't wait to get my child out of this school!!!

Incredible school. Terrific academics. Solid extracurricular offerings. 19-20 kids in each 1st grade class this year ('07-'08). Great administration. No wonder the school is nationally recognized. Has history of Getty graduates doing extremely well in middle school and beyond. Terrifically diverse student body. Couldn't expect anything more! Go Generals! Purple Pride!!

2007 National Blue Ribbon winner. Excellent parent participation, teacher enthusiasm towards extra-curricular activities. Overall, a very well-rounded school.

Gettysburg provides a great education and the teachers are veterans that love children. The office staff is experienced and helpful. I'm glad my kids attend Gettysburg...and I'm an elementary teacher from another district!

I have three children who have attended this school. Strengths are leadership and strong basic education. Gettysburg's academics are test-driven, but adequate. My two older kids were well prepared for upper grade work. The music program is great, but not everyone is allowed to participate. Art is minimal. The teachers are overworked. Class size--my child tells me there are 39 kids in her fifth grade class. I believe all the 4 - 6 grade classrooms have over 35 students. Leadership is a strength in CUSD. The problem areas I see are: 1) critical thinking skills, 2) writing is somewhat neglected, as it is only state-tested in 4th grade, 3) class size in 4 - 6th, 4) special education.

I have a child who has attended Gettysburg Elementary School for the past 4 years. He continues to be challenged as well as encouraged. I couldn't ask for anything better.

My son has been going to Gettysburg Elementry for three years now and I'm very happy to say that the teachers there are very highly educated and greatly skilled. The teachers there are the best they put all there effort into making sure the the children there know there best.That is the kind of stuff that me and my husband like to see.My son has been into sports there for two years now and the school has some great and excillent coaches they work hard for what they do. My son is happy there and so are my husband and I. I would never change my son schools and if I could recommend anyone to a great school it would be Gettysburg Elementry School!The principal there knows all the student by there name and is fair and equal to all students. I think he make great decisions.

Gettysburg offers a fantastic education and the opportunities for success are great. The staff seems very happy and the curriculum is hard. The kids rise to the occasion to achieve. The office staff is a dream.

My son has attended Gettysburg for 4 years now and our family all agrees that he has benefited positively from this school. Gettysburg is outstanding and an awesome school altogether!This year is his last year here at Gettysburg and when he moves on to the seventh grade we will truly miss Gettysburg because we have felt like it's such a family oriented environment there!
