Our little one just started attending Gualt Street School as a new Kindergartener this year. Her new teacher (Ms. Price) is wonderful and very involved with the children as well as encouraging to the children and their parents to help keep everyone motivated and moving in the right direction. The principal was very welcoming to new and existing students alike and appears to take great interest in the well being of his pupils. It is disappointing and discouraging to read negative comments from parents who would probably find a more positive outcome to their concerns if they were a little more pro active in helping to correct any problems the school may be facing.
My child has been going to this school for 3 years now. I am currently happy with the teacher he is with but this has been a struggle. I get the sense that the teachers and staff are doing their basic jobs but aren't going above and beyond for their students. I don't get a sense of camaraderie within the staff like I do at other schools. I am defiantly concerned with the continuing decrease in scores and API. I am seriously considering removing my child from this school.
This school has great lesson plans. The students here learn advanced subjects at an early age. Vegetarian friendly foods available in the cafeteria.
I love this school! Everyone is so friendly, kind, and courteous!! My children are learning academics and good citizenship.
I don't know why anyone would write negative comments about such a lovely school!! The teachers and principal are outstanding, the school is clean and safe, and the academics continue to improve. I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else!!!
Terrific school, making great progress!! Very friendly environment that is safe and clean. Despite all of the district cuts, they seem to be 'business as usual'.
My children attended Gault last year and I am more than pleased. No, the test scores aren't the highest but I really like the nurturing spirit, the supportive staff, and a principal that is always invol;ved and available.
I rerally feel a sense of unity at Gault. The principal is very involved and the teachers appear to be taking on the challege of educating quite a few non-English speakers. Give them the credit they deserve!!!
Not enough parent involvement. Test scores are low. We needed to get our child out.
This is the school where my daughter went to kindergarten last year. We did not have a good experience because there are too many children who are striving to learn English. She could read many words, knew all the letters and phonics and some math, too, while in pre-school, so she was discouraged at the learning level of this school. It didn't feel safe there either for the littlier kids. This school needs some up-grading. We are gone.
