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.

much of the homework is repetitive busy work. there are no challenging projects. standard worksheets are the norm

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.

St Gabriel School
Develops respect: Neutral

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


St Gabriel School
Develops empathy: Disagree

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

Students are not developing integrity. Conflicts are not resolved fairly. Not practicing catholic values as expected

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.

Very small school but huge class sizes. Teachers are ok- disappointed with Kindergarten teacher. The administration is lacking. Although, better than the public schools in Windsor.

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.
