Robin is the most amazing principal! Her involvement & love for these children is magical!!! I love this school & so do my children. This is the kind of school I wish I wouldve went to!
The parents are very involved in the day to day activities. The teachers and administrators are easily accessable and caring.
My children attended Gulf Gate Elem. and it was a great starting foundation.
After attending Kindergarten and 1st grade out of the country, my son was behind in reading, he attended Gulf Gate for grade 2 and is getting the help he needs to improve his reading.
Excellent school! Robin Hagood is a phenomenal principal and she has a staff of incredible teachers!Love the enthusiasm of everyone who helps to make this one of the best elementary schools in Sarasot.
My son has attended Gulf Gate for 2 years and we love it! The teachers and principal are great, and there is tons of parent involvement. My only complaint is the 'science' instruction, which consists of a 45 minute class, once every 6 days, and usually involves a non-educational movie (like Land Before Time) instead of any science-related curriculum. Luckily my son's teacher makes up for this in the classroom with extra science. Overall, we love Gulf Gate!
My son has been a student at Gulf gate for almost two years, and we all love it. His teachers go above and beyond, and our daughter is starting kindergarden next fall. We look forward to both children being in such a great neighborhood school.
This school has impressed me from day one. We started in kindergarten in 2006 and have been pleasantly surprised by the caring staff, awesome academic curriculum and high parent involvement. The principal always has a genuine smile and greets all the kids. My children have been expose to art, music, technology and P.E., as well as interesting academic subjects. I am looking forward to many more great years at Gulf Gate Elementary!
Great school! My children love Gulf Gate. The principal Mrs. Hagood is wonderful and takes an interest in all of the children at the school. The teachers are great too! I highly recommend Gulf Gate!
Both of my children are attending Gulf Gate. Gulf Gate is a school that cares about its students. Each child is provided computer classes en speacials. Great school, highly recommend!
This school appears to have a high level of parent involvement and is located in a well to do area of Sarasota. Not many parents use the bus system but prefer to drop off and pick up kids. Teachers appears caring, knowledgeable and well qualified. Our son was in the first grade here and had a very positive experience.
Gulf Gate is a wonderful school that promotes teamwork and learning by doing. My son is very happy and enjoys going to school everday. I love his school!
