I feel like we won the teacher jackpot with Ms. Loh this year in John Gill's Mandarin Immersion program! Her enthusiasm and dedication have allowed everyone in the K-1 class to thrive. This includes native Mandarin speakers and those students who are new to Mandarin. It's amazing to see the progress and we are so grateful for Ms. Loh and her excellence in teaching.
I am impressed with the commitment of Principal Rivera to improving this school and commend the school district for adding the Mandarin Immersion program to John Gill. The MI program in its inaugural year was a great success. There are so many good things taking shape at John Gill.
My son loves going to school. John Gil.....Eagles! He's part of the new crop of children who joined the Mandarin Immersion program. We are very lucky to have such a warm and qualified teacher (Ms. Loh) teaching our class. My son is learning Mandarin, science, math and English very quickly. Aside from this program, he's made a lot of friends from other classes. The same goes for adults. The principal and parents have done a very good job of building a community within the school. As we head into the last few weeks of school, parents from all grades and classes are working together to plan and execute school wide events. We are looking forward to next year!
Our teacher is quick to send us feedback and comments about our child. Whenever we have reported any incidents we have heard from our son about the behavior of other students, our teacher has been quick to react and monitor the situation. The school listens and tries very hard to promote an environment of fairness and compassion among all students.
Every Monday during school assembly the students recite the school's Eagle PRIDE (Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Determination, Excellent). .I have heard my child mention this at home when he reasons with his younger brother. It is a mantra that the school lives by and instills in all the children,
Our son attends the JG Mandarin Immersion program. This is only the program's inaugural year, yet our son has learned a ton of Chinese and we have found the curriculum to be interesting and challenging. We have been deeply impressed and heartened by the District's commitment to the Mandarin Immersion program and the dedication of many of the super-involved parents. If you are looking for a great education for your child and to be a part of a lasting community, you've come to the right place. .- MHL
Ms Loh is an excellent and dedicated teacher. Her extensive preparation and love for her children is evident in every class she teaches. Our child has thrived in his kindergarten year under her tutelage. We are extremely grateful. Thank you! Mary and Richard Lin
