I love this school!! I went to school here and my kids have as well, I cannot say enough wonderful stuff about the staff, the students, and the quality of education. The only thing I would change is adding a language, better arts program, or science program...something to make the school stand out even more.

We elected to put our son in GIES when he was in Kdg. We are in the Glynndale Ele. zone, due to that schools very low testing scores we were given a chioce of schools. GIES had a K-1 program that fit our son to a T! He is now in the gifted program and going into 2nd grade. I ame VERY involved at the school and the PTA. This is a very safe and caring invironment that I will fight to keep my son in! :) They take time to help those who need x-tra, parents also help with kids in areas of difficulty whithin the classroom. This is a quality school any parent would be able to feel safe knowing the best is being done for a child on any level.... can you tell...I'm happy! So is my son! That's even better!
