We moved here in Jan.08 and feel like Gehringer has been a outstanding school. The staff/teachers were helpful and wonderful to work with while we moving here. My son has had nothing but positive to things to say about Gehringer and his teachers. He excells and the teachers are very good at keeping you update/informed. I give Gehringer a 10.
My sons teacher is Miss Dudek,and she is wonerfull. She is very hands on and is very nice to my son.The only downfall is waiting in line just to even pull into the driveway.
I must admit my entire family loves Gehringer! My two boys were in private school before we arrived in California last year. Gehringer has provided them with the academic challenges they were used to and with lots of loving guidance and discipline. The teachers are superb and so is the school's principal.
Gehringer has been a geat school so far. I have had my boys there for the last two years with no problems with the exception of the parents who clog up the driveway because they dont think about others.
My son is only in Kindergarten & so far, we like this school. Everyone tries to be on the same boat with us parents in dealing & solving whatever problems we have/had with our son. There has been a great improvement since the beginning of school year. His teacher tells me so. There are few bumps here & there. But that is life. I hope that the staff, teachers & Mrs. Buckman will continue onto making this school great as it already is. Traffic is the only flaw I see right now. Thanks to all. (Especially to Mrs. Baladad) :-)
This will be our 4th year at Gehringer in this time a new principal has come to the school. She only carried out minor changes in her first year and we are pleased that Gehringer continues to move forward. The teaching staff at Gehringer is wonderful! They are all focused on encouraging our children to learn in a positive environment regardless of their level. Every child s need are addressed and the teachers are always doing their best to implement ideas that will help all the students. The school administration is excellent and oversees our children's care, as well as managing the school and all that is ongoing daily. No school is without its bumps but this staff gets a A+ for their outstanding efforts in ensuring the best for our children. This school also has had a good strong volunteer basis in its parents and the 2007-08 looks the best.
I love this school. We moved in town and changed schools in district. Gehringer is an older school, but unbeleivably better. Our son is above grade level in all areas, and the reading program that they have implemented here continues to challenge him. All of his teachers have also been great about giving him extra challenges in order to keep him from being 'bored' in class.
Gehringer has been an outstanding school for my daughter. The teachers are of the highest quality and the principal, Mrs. Walters has been outstanding. Parents are very involved in school activities and are very welcome on campus. The staff is great and the kids really love their school. Our 6 years at Gehringer have been great.
My son is a 'special needs' child. The teachers, counselor and principal all work with us to get my son the best education possible. The teachers (especially Mrs. Abbott) have gone above the call of duty with my son. They have welcomed by information about his illness and work with me to get the daily updates that I need. If I ever have to move from this area I would love to take this school with me.
I have been at this school for over 5 years with my children and have had such a winderful experience that I would recommend parents moving to this area to come move within this school zone. They have such a great and supporting staff that it makes it so much fun to volunteer there. I do not want to move from this area because of the great school!
Gehringer is a good school. Coming from a different school with much more parental involvement and more extracurricular activities was kind of a let down though. My son's teacher has been great about keeping him involved in his class as he tends to be ahead of the class in much of his work and needs extra activities to keep him from losing interest. I would like to be more involoved in my child's class, but have felt some hesitancy from his teacher anytime that I volunteer. I would also to see more emphasis placed on the many easy, hassel free ways there are to raise money for the shool that have not been advertised to the parents.
My child has an IEP and receives Speech and OT. Both therapists seem great and the school psychologist, Robyn Byrd, is terrific. I do wish that they had a better solution for children who do not qualify for special ed, yet receive resource help. I am afraid he is falling behind as they really cram a lot into a school year and by the time he starts to 'get it', they move on to something else and then he never really masters anything and eventually has to re-learn it all over again. This may be a State problem, as I'm sure they teach what they are required to, but it's just too much unless you are a 'normal', bright child. I agree with the other response re: the yard duties. There needs to be more supervision on the playground.
