My school is Gardenhill Elementary what I like about this school is the readiness of the principal and teachers to answer questions about academic standards, the emphasis on character traits and the diversity of cultures.
We live in Norwalk but we prefer my son to be a student in Gardenhill Elementary school rather than a homeschool in Norwalk. Now he has been in the first grade for two months,he loves his teacher Mrs. Wright and Mrs. Ross and both of them do great. Before at kindergarten, Mrs. Mullen was his teacher and she was very exellent and wonderful teacher. Not only my son but we do love her. Thank you very much Mrs. Mullen, we are Kenneth's parents. Next year his younger brother is going to be a member of this school. Obviously, with API score 902, this is the best elementary school in the district.
Love this school! Transferred my son from another school in my district to get him into this school. Teachers are wonderful and are always willing to spend time with me everyday to discuss my child's needs.
Gardenhill is great school. Academics are great, most of the teachers are great. My child had Mrs. Gersbacher and I would recommend her to anyone who wants a kind and nurturing teacher for their child. She is genuinely concerned for each [Big] A+ for Mrs. Gersbacher and Gardenhill. The only negative are the parents. Too many cliques.
Our child has attended Gardenhill for the last two years. The 1st grade team was wonderful, especially Mrs. Hodge. She has such a loving, and dedicated attitude. I would recommend this school to all my friends.
Academically, my daughter has gained a great foundation that has allowed her to raise her own standards. Thanks to Mr. Rogers for hanging in there to make sure that no child really is left behind. The school lacks after school extracurricular activities. The school lacks organized drop-off/pick-up procedures. The parents have a high level of involvement and commitment in thier children's education.
