We transferred our children to Georgetown Community School this year. It is early in the year for a full review, so I will post again if needed. At this point, I am very impressed with the school. Every school day starts with a full community assembly orchestrated by the Principal and Vice Principal. The assembly includes parents in giving strong, positive messages to the students that they can carry with them throughout the day. Being a school in a small mountain town, I am sure the teachers are working for less and giving much more. As a parent, I feel motivated to volunteer to help this amazing effort and feel that the school welcomes parent and community volunteers. The CSAP scores are high and the community is strong.

GCS is a truly magical place to work. The children, parents, teachers and community members collaborate to provide a nurturing and challenging academic environment for every student from 6 weeks to 6th grade. Never before have I been lucky enough to teach at a school where I know every student by name and have such an amazing group of people around me on a daily basis who truly love the students and our school.

I went to this school from Kindergarten to fifth grade. I was allways in a class of about 15-20 students every year i was there. I was allways an OK student. I was avarage at math class , until fifth grade whan the teacher moved me into a " independent study " math group , where he let us manage our home work . Sounds great , right ? Not so much. I fell so behind in math that year i am still struggling . Nice staff , but its a popularity contest , or at least thats how i saw it and contiue to today , still living in georgetown but swiched school because i disliked and had many issues with my piers.I am not a rude girl or a troubble maker i just , dint belong here.

This is a great school, if you are in the 'in crowd'. It is located in a very small community and if you or your children have any issues at all with anyone, don't expect to come out on top. Certain children are shown much favoritism, which is obvious to the other children who aren't. If they complain about this or act out because of it, they are seen as trouble makers. The principal and some teachers are far too inexperienced. Too bad the kids have to pay the price. Take your children here if you plan on having a high rank in the community, otherwise find an alternative. It won't matter how much personal time you put into the school.

Vibrant and motivated teachers, who are creative and really enjoy working with our kids, make our school successful and a very happy place for my child. The curriculum is excellent and makes learning fun. These elements are topped off with a healthy dose of parental involvement. Our school experience is unmatched!

Because of budget cuts, our school was 'officially' closed down in 2007. People from our community rallied together to keep it open. It went from being called the Georgetown Elementary School to Georgetown Community School. We have a wonderful paid staff of teachers and a principal but the rest of the staff (cafeteria workers, librarian, music, etc. are all volunteers. The school was built in 1939 and we, as parents, grandparents and just members of the community are not going to let our school (and children) fail.

As the name suggests, Georgetown is a community school. Parents, teachers, students, and members of the community are invested in giving the kids the best possible education. With the community involvement the kids are learning great lessons in being involved in their community and in being good citizens.

I love this school because of the interest the teachers, administrators and parents take in the children. The curriculum is great, the teachers work with each student and don't just teach to the students who need the most help.

The one on one the teachers give to the students. My son has excelled since being in the school. They allow the parents to get involved from attending assembley to guesting in class.

GCS is a public charter school in its 3rd year of operation. Since its conversion from a District operated school standardized test scores have climbed 32%. The teachers and staff are amazing and caring. The school offers a Qualistar rated Toddler and Preschool program. The parental involvement and community commitment to the success of the school is second to none.
