Gage is a great school!! My daughter attended Kindergarten thru 5th grade here.My son has attended this school since kindergarten and he is now in the 3rd grade. The teachers are great!! The best things are also the PTA sponsored activities like the Halloween Carnival, Math,Science and PE nights, the talent show and movie nights and dances! The prioncipal Mrs. Burns is very freindly and cares about all families and students.

My daughter is a 1st grader at Gage and she LOVES going to school. Every 7 weeks they recognize students who attend school everyday, are on time, and have good behavior. They attend a "Student Star" assembly and are recognized for their hard work and effort. The school has many family activities (Math, Science, and PE night). There is also an afterschool Garden Club that meets every other Wednesday and a Running Club. The teachers are very nurturing and really care about the students and their academic success.

We did a lot of research on schools but were too late on our paperwork to get into the school with the highest ratings so, we ended up at Gage...best thing ever!!! The kindergarten teachers are a parent's dream (especially Lori Miller) and so far, the 1st grade teachers have left the same impression. Mrs. Burns, the principal, is always available to discuss your concerns & she truly cares about her staff & students. If you allow yourself, you will have the opportunity to extend your family here, it is truly a community. We have been blessed to make a lot of friends by meeting other parents. The school also has a lot of fun groups & activities. There is a School Beautification group that has planted some beautiful flower and produce gardens with the kids so the students take a lot of pride in the campus. There is a running club that starts every morning 15 min before the first bell. I didn't realize how cool this was until I saw my son learn to love a morning run. He has run 50 miles so far this year! There are family math & science nights,a monthly Principal's Tea (to learn about current school/district news), book exchanges, great field trips (whale watching!). You will love it!

We moved to Gage from another school in the track with a higher API score as this is our home school. We have been extremely happy with the quality of my child's teacher and the principal, Ms. Burns, is wonderful and trying very hard to improve API scores, attendance, and keep each parent informed and involved. API scores should not be the only measure of a school's worth. This is a very close knit school where you can get to know each other and support one another. The small PTA board does a lot for this school and really cares. My only complaint is I wish there was more parent involvement. But the ones who are involved are super nice and this is a very friendly school. If you are thinking of Gage, I definetly recommend this school.

I have 3 children in Gage elementary and we all loved our school and take pride. The teachers are fantastic as well as academic program too.There are many activities going on during the school year like Science night, Math night, P.E. night, talent shows, spelling bee and many more. We would like to invite kids and parents to come and see.There is a new club on campus where children are working on to make school more pretty, they paint , plant the seeds and take care of nature around the school.We love our school and she will always be a part of our future.

I could not wait to take my daughter out of GAGE. They academic programs has very low standards. About 60% of the kids in my daughters class had to attend summer school! Not to mention, the teacher has been there for so long she didnt know any interest in her job. Everytime a child would get into trouble the whole class had to pay for it. They never had any class parties because the class always paid for 1 kid's trouble.

Gage Elementary is a good school. My daughter was in kindergarten K-2 in 2007-2008 school year. She enjoed going to school every day. Learning process was fun, creative and covered many areas to prepare children for 1st grade. My daughter's teacher Mrs. Youngman is a great teacher. I wish she could teach my daughter's class K-2 in 1st grade. She is very good: knowledgable, experienced, great personally and much more. Svetlana Hodges Svetlana Hodges

My Daughter who is now in 4th grade has been attending Gage since last year. We have been very happy with the academic programs and activities at the school. At first I didn't feel I was getting enough communication from the school to the parents, but that is not an issue anymore. We get plenty of newsletters sent home. The teachers are available if we ever have any questions or concerns. We're happy with the after school care on site and cafeteria prices of school lunches.

I hate to write these types of reviews, but hearing all the parents in our neighborhood complain at this school I was a little pessimistic going in. Our first experience was with the front office staff, moving from out of the area we asked for a tour of the school and were immediately let down. Our first day of school was another let down as the teacher didn't even introduce herself to us and we did not receive any typoe of inofrmation coming in. We could not move our son out of this school fast enough. I hope the Principle reads this note and maskes drastic changes for teh future students.

Gage elementary is excellent! My son has attended K-first grade there,I have been impressed with this school. The teachers show great interest in the students. The school offers variety in teaching the children. I loved the fact that even in kindergarten they were being taught not just basics like reading/writing/arithmetic, but also science, physical education, and lots of fun in learning. This school has lots of spirit, and kids really seem to enjoy being there. I also want to say that 'running club' is WONDERFUL! I don't understand why all schools don't have this. The kids run laps around a large field to earn tickets to go towards popsicles, running ribbons, and top runner awards. I think this program is an excellent idea to encourage physical activity and a sense of achievement. My son ran 75+ miles over the course of kindergarten! More than my entire life! Gage is great!

Gage is a fantastic school. My daughter is in the second grade and has had three great teachers - Ms. Youngman, Ms. Scott, and Ms. Lindstrom. We look forward to third, fourth, and fifth grade at Gage Elementary.
