St Gabriel School 5

This school is excellent! Great principal and teachers, with a thorough curriculum. Amazing! They have a lot of community work, such as Project Linus, Covenant to Care, and many more. All subjects are taught well, and there's a lot of homework to keep the minds of the students going.

If your child is smart enough in the academics, join him , otherwise you will face lot of pressure, St Gabriel school always looks for A or A+ in the student right from first quarter. My son faced lot of pressure, always gets complain that your son has to improve in this on that etc. They even made him go through some testing by board of education if he is special needs child, just because his processing time of information is slow compared to others.. my son lost his self esteem because of this. management also not supports new comers and tries to corner the student when there is bullying issue (petty issues also) and blames the new comer , my son face two issues like this, principal herself agreed that she "assumed" our son did it, which is ridiculous. She made him to write the apology letter to other student that he stole her pen even though he also own same kind of pen, she assumed that's not his pen but other students. these kind of petty issues also they are not able to manage at school and tries to suppress the kid and his parents who are soft spoken just because they have to answer other parent.. This School is not meant for character development, they don't encourage new students. When you look back, you have to remember the sweet memories , but we had bitter memories. with this school. The good part of the school is I like the way they give home works and conduct weekly tests. again may be it depends of the teacher.

they don't develop social skills in the students , my son is the victim , he tried to move close with other kids, tried to be friendly, but that itself became issue and my son got blamed.

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.

the school has a science fair but does not teach the scientific method to students so they have no idea how to prepare and experiment.

Develops respect: Neutral

Students are not encouraged to be individuals and respect differences among each other. if one student misbehaves the entire class suffers

There is no schoolwide community service project. Their greatest charity is themselves. Constant fundraising for themselves instead of the community.
