The Gilbert school looks the other way when students are being bullied or harassed and there is no extreme punishment when bullying is being involved. I think that the teachers should be circulating around the classroom that way the bulling problems would be nicked in the butt. I thought that this school did not look away when a student is bulling another student.

The Gilbert School is a semi private school that has a student exchange program. It is wonderful to bring a different culture to our community so that the students have the chance share their education with others from abroad. The board members strive to keep The Gilbert School current with education and technology. The faculty help the students both socially and with their education. It's a great school with great people.

They offer Latin and mandarin to middle schoolers. All of the teachers really care and take their jobs seriously. My son is so happy at this school. Definitely a bright light in Winsted.

Wow is this school changing for the better, an entirely new administrative team has been hired and they are amazing (2012)! A storm of change is brewing with strong, brilliant and visionary leadership. I have a middle schooler and high school aged child attending and because the student population is small they are getting personalized attention. The student body is close knit and kids look out for one another. Environment is very positive and caring, teachers easy to contact and communicative, showing true kindness and concern for kids. Academic achievement is a strong focus for administration and expectations of students has markedly changed in the past year. Still room for improvement, but lots of plans are in the making. I am so pleasantly surprised to find this gem in a town which has had issues in the past. I would highly recommend to a student looking for a small school experience.

they had a great language program. And the school is semi-private so they were able to offer more than some of the neighboring schools. And all the teachers were long time employees as well as close to the town

This school is absolutely horrible, and I have to agree with the first person who commented on this. They do focus more on the kids that cause trouble, I couldn't pay attention in half of my classes because kids were walking around the room, not paying attention, talking to their friends, completley ignoring the teachers - easily distracting the other students. The teachers don't seem to do anything, and the ones that do are told to deal with it, there are a selected few teachers that really good and i was glad to have them, but some others are just terrible, rude, and just seem like they do not want to be there just as much as most of the students. Gilbert is going down the tubes as it is, they're looking at cutting art and music. I can not wait to get out of this school&never look back.

I had a daughter who transferred from failing at Torrington high to the honors roll at Gilbert, she got a lot of help there, plus a scholarship without being related to anyone on the board

As an alumni I can tell you from personal experience this is one of the worst schools in Connecticut. They focus more on the students that cause trouble, than those who are there to actually learn. As for those students who wish to be college bound, good luck finding someone to help you through the process. They also like to advertise all the scholarship money they dole out each year to both graduates and alumni, but you better be related to someone on the board or the faculty member to qualify.
