We have 2 children attending here. We LOVE the principal! If their is an issue she finds a way to address it whether an assembly, meeting, or being the crossing guard. Almost all the teachers our children have had go above & beyond and We love their passion for teaching. Our children love going to school everyday and that makes us happy parents! We don't always like that they get quite a few substitutes due to the teachers miss a lot of teaching days for trainings & meetings etc.. Isn't that what teacher work days and summer should be about. Just a thought. But if it keeps the kids learning and teachers amazing who am I to really complain about the process. Both our children only had a rough 1st grade experience and had the same teacher. She maybe needs to rethink her career and know each child is unique and not each child responds to her type of discipline & structure. We just used it as a early life learning lesson on how you may not always like and get along with everyone. Customer service aspect the school is lacking A LOT! I would love for the front office staff & cafiteria workers to go to more trainings on that if anything. My children refuse to buy lunch after many attempts of buying and were either scolded for imputing their # in wrong due to feeling rushed or they run out of the item from the menu. If you have to deal with the front office ladies good luck! They are rude no matter what you are going in for. Everything is always your fault or are handled in a way that you are an annoyance to them. Lack of communication between teachers & nurses with them cause a lot of the issues. But I don't blame them I would avoid talking to them too if I could. Just have thick skin and only go in if you absolutely have to is my advice... Which is sad they are supposed to be welcoming and a friendly face of the school and the link to you and the school. The PTO is pretty awesome they ask for a lot, money, supplies, donations, volunteers, but we can see it all going to a great cause so ok with it. So all in all we keep our kids here for the only reason that we can see our kids love of learning brought on by the amazing teachers! So thank you to all the amazing teachers at Gisler!

My child has been attending Gisler since kindergartn (now a 3rd grader). I have had great experience with his teachers so far. Classes have never exceeded 28 students.?They put a great deal of time into there instruction and comparing his reading and math with other children his age who don't attend this school I see the difference. The Pta (something I am not part of but do try to give money when I can) does a great job in having multiple activities for families to attend. They do ask for donations regularly, but you can see all that is being given to the school by the PTA, so I don't mind. School supplies are plentiful here never had a complaint by my child about lack of material. Children are able to attend computer labs and library weekly. The library has a great selection on modern books that my child enjoys. There are also art classes for the children and after school activities (such as music or sports--at a cost) offered. We've never had a problem with bulling or name calling, they hold assemblies about it the subject...I think it has made a difference. Overall I think it deserves it 9 star rating. Cons; Lunch menu lacks healthy options and creativity so we pack most our lunch. And there is no air conditioning for the kids, but they survive.

Robert Gisler. So far I've been below average overall. A school that doesn't let parents be involved ( unless to fund money at the carnival and pta donations). Many of the parents at a certain 2nd grade teacher where very displeased. If this school rates a 9, we are in trouble.

Awesome school! My son has been there from kindergarten and has loved every moment of it. This year has been his favorite year due to his wonderful 3rd grade teacher and all his best friends. My son is the happiest boy in the world to go to his favorite school everyday. It is kind of like winning a lottery ticket everyday to see your child wanting to go to school so much. We are so grateful as great education is the most important. Sadly due to a school closure and new boundary lines created by the district, we have now officially been assigned to a different school for him. We will do whatever we can to stay in this school but if all fails, I would be very sad to see my son going to a different school, without his friends only for the last two years of elementary school. We love Gisler! Please let us stay!

I was thrilled with bowler last year with mrs. Perkins Now we have mrs. Buehler and the verdict is still out. She has not done anything "wrong" but I have been able to help this year and I am noticing things I wish parents would have a say about first ie: later gators kindergarten does lunch recess on the 1/2nd grade playground. I wish I could of had a vote. They say its because there are not enough aids to watch both playgrounds but im sure some parents would have volunteered.

I have 3 children who have attended Gisler. We have had (for the most part) very good teachers all 6+ yrs. The staff is very professional and willing to work w/the parents. We think Mrs. Perkins is doing a great job as our principal! We hope she stays for a while!

Gisler is awesome ! my son is in first grade. He was not doing so well so we asked the school to test him to see if maybe there was something we were not seeing. His teacher, principal, reading specialist, school psychologist and other professional staff rallied together to see what the problem was. Many professionals were involved at our request. Testing was done extensivly and a wonderful report was compiled about our son. All at no charge to us. Through this wonderful examination from the gisler staff we were alerted to the fact of his problem and appropriate steps were and are being taken to address his needs and are continuing to be addressed. Thank you gisler staff and principal for helping our son get thru the first grade and to address his needs. I am so impressed & thankful for the attention given to our son. Gisler is awesome

My child has gone to Gisler since she was in Kindergaten and we absolutely love it! We have moved twice and kept her in this school because no other schools compare. I am thankful that they have allowed us to do an inter-district transfer the last two years. I would love to keep her in until the end of 5th.

This school is just great. I attended it as a child and now my child attends this school. The principal and teaching staff is very caring, knowledgable and helpful.

The academic programs for grades k and 1st have been wonderful for my child. He has been at the top of his class and has been encouraged to reach beyond grade standards. Extracuriccular activities are available (at an additional charge). We have a PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) we have approx. 510 students and only about 20 parents consistently are involved in our PTO. We need more parental involvement--the same parents can't do handle all of the jobs to make this a successful PTO.

My children came from FV Montessori. I was skeptical at first if they would fit in academically but their first year as Gisler has proven to be a great transition. I had the oppertunity to send them to a private school this year and I opted against it because the teachers, staff and parents at Gisler are wonderful!
