Gust Elementary School1

My son went here to Gust for ECE for 2012/2013. The classroom was not structured and the teacher had no control in her room. The teacher and school made my son seem like a bad/problem child. One day while I was in the classroom with my son I heard the teacher yelling at a little girl saying she was driving her crazy and to sit down. I was so worried about my child that I put my son in private Therapy. Therapy was great, there is nothing wrong with my child.I ended up taking my son out the last 2 weeks of school. I had the worst experience here and was worried about starting my son in Kindergarten. I enrolled my son in a neighborhood school this year 2013/2014 and warned them he might have a hard time at first. Well his teacher this year has not had 1 single problem and doesnt know what I was talking about. I would never recommend Gust Elementary to anyone.
My daughter is going through a transition from montessori schooling to a normal elementary school system and she is still abit behind, but her 1st grade teacher Mrs.Santos is doing a wonderful job bringing her up to grade level!... I feel like they actually try to work with my daughter in the best way possible for her to successfully succed academically wise and everyday I see more and more of an improvement in my childs education I love seeing this change in such little time and my daughter actually enjoying going to school every day thank you all very much for the support and patience and im looking forward to a GREAT school year, goooooo tigers!!!!!!
My daughter's reading level went up three grade levels last year. I feel like the entire school staff worked together to contribute to her success. It still brings tears to my eyes knowing how wonderful and dedicated her teachers are and that they truly taught her how to read. After attending several other schools, this is the first one she enjoys going to and for the first time says she loves school.
The teachers are outstanding and the principal is very involved as well as the assistant principle. We moved out of school district this year but I refuse to remove my daughter because I love everyone at this school. The whole staff is very involved with the children as well as very caring.
