My daughter had a traumatic experience with one of their employees called Marisa Silva. She abuses children psychological, leaving scars. She is not qualified for the Job and for what I understand she has serious personal issues. Because of people like her I would stay away from this School. Be aware if you love your children, take them somewhere else. Yes I know this school has "good" reputation but do your search on it and you will be able to ready-see a lot of the other side they are hiding. I am a reporter and mother who wants the best for my child. Trust me!
If you are looking for a great high school prep education, this is it. I am now a college sophomore at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA and the transition was not difficult at all from the AP and Honors work at Gulliver to here. You need to make the most of your education at Gulliver; if you can place into a higher class, do it because it pays off in the long run. I am also a Division I athlete and Gulliver has one of the finest athletic high school programs in the country. I am not sure what the reviews are talking about regarding administration harassing individuals. The administration while I was there never gave me too much of an issue, ever. If you go to class, are polite, respectful, and get good enough grades, no one is going to bother you. It is pretty much the same in life.
I was at Gulliver from August 2011 to December 2012. Quite frankly, the environment was quite nice, the people were pleasant, many teachers were very professional, and the food was good, however the administrators constantly find unreasonable justifications to pick on students, especially after their parents stop giving the school donations, and hold personal grudges against students for no justifiable reason. Students are harassed, constantly searched, prohibited at times from calling their parents during questioning by the administration, and they constantly find excuses to invade students' personal lives. They are self entitled, ruthless, and unfair, and seem to be on a power trip, or taking out anger caused by their personal problems on the students. I think it is worth mentioning that the counselor I was assigned is a backstabber. The fact that Gulliver is a private school does not help, as one essentially signs away his/her rights upon enrollment, and there is nothing one can do, other than ensure that their parents provide the school with a generous donation every year. And all of this for only $30,000! Your time will most likely be better spent in a different school.
