Garden gate is an excellent school that has improved tremendously over the last few years. The teachers are by far very well versed and have been teaching for years. My children love it there.
Very good school. Great Children and great teachers. The only problem is seems the school district doesn't have enough funding.
Garden Gate is a very good school. This school has lots of good teachers, but this school is not perfect. Once in a while the teachers overreact to the students. This is a good school, but not a perfect one.
This is one of the best school in Cupertino. They have the Gate program which enrichments to highly capable students.
A great school, excellent teachers who care about their students. My son has so far attended K-2 and we have been very pleased to be part of this school.
I was surprised and shocked the way the school conducted its affairs - my kid did kindergarten in this school and I promptly pulled out next year. There were 6 sections for kindergarten and only the first two had regular teacher - rest of the sections, including my kid's had only trainees/ part time teacher. Worst in my kids case - the class was conducted by a parent one day, as there was no teacher. Surprised that the school is part of the Cupertino School district and still has such standards. Partiality is rampant - if the kid's mom could hang over with the teacher/school, the kid gets all benefits - good books, regular training with spelling words etc etc. If you do not know that, then absolutely nothing. The schools scores excellent marks - thanks to the efforts of the parents. Put the school in a diff area, then no scores!
My son currently goes to Garden Gate in Kindergarden. And I think the school is absolutely wonderful! My son has made remarkable progress academically, yet the learning is never boring. There are so many activities, such as field trips and music programs, that make learning a fun thing. Everyday he is looking forward to going to school, and he misses school so much during recess that going back to school becomes an incentive for him to behave! Garden Gate is the best!
I am a student at Garden Gate school and I think the staff and teachers are very invovled with the students. Many extra-cirrular activies occur quite often. Today we had Colonial Market Day. I think this school is fun and educational at the same time. All teachers are working very hard with the students helping them, and making them have a good time while they are there. I think Garden Gate Elementary is the best school I ever went to!
We miss Garden Gate! Teachers are great, all activities to cover curriculum are very effective. This school has a lot of new and young teachers who are very innovative and not tired of their profession yet.
This is second year of schooling for my son in this and I see a remarkable growth in his IQ/activities. Great school and excellant principal. Kudos!
