class sizes are too large. Teachers are not trained to handle large class sizes hence the lack of differentiation. Administrator is not strong. Too much teacher turnover throughout the school year and between years. special teachers are not highly qualified. save your money.
As a parent of a very spirited child, it was a rough start at SGS but everyone between us at home, teacher, principal and para all worked together to get on the same page and do the best for my child. It is so nice to be part of a population of people with kind, considerate, polite kids. With parents that are involved with their kids. Everyone is working with the kids, helping them to be the best they can be. We are very happy with SGG and hope to be there till 8th grade.
Everyone wants to believe the school they choose for their children are the best, hence 'they are doing the best by their kids'. In this case, my daughter went to St. G's, but switched out due to finanicial issues. She was in the top 10% of her class at St. G's, and after starting at the local public school she was having a hard time keeping up, and didn't even get into the higher math and language arts courses. St. G's doesn't take the CMT's like the public schools in town, so we couldn't compare apples to apples. I have a feeling they do that on purpose. In hind sight, I feel a bit short-changed.
