3 of my 4 children have attended Gustafson. During our time there my children have benefited from some good teachers. In particular this year my son had a great teacher, Mr Steve Cronin. Mr. Cronin connected with my son and adapted his teaching style to my son's learning style. My son loved the 2nd Grade. I witnessed Mr. Cronin's rapport with his class while volunteering in the school. In summary, Mr. Cronin is an excellent teacher and is just one of several good teachers my children have encountered at Gustafson.
My 5th grade daughter is excited to go to AGS each day! Each student in her class has an iPad available for learning activities. The students and staff are friendly and helpful, especially her teacher, Mrs. C.
Teachers go out of there way everyday to provide an exceptional learning environment for students
This is an excellent school with the best teachers. My daughters were very well prepared for middle school, and thoroughly enjoyed their time in school. I especially appreciated them learning a second language as part of the curriculum all the way through elementary, it prepared them well for further learning. All of this in a warm caring atmosphere!
Alice Gustafson School is one of the best in Batavia! My children's teachers have differentiated the curriculum to meet the needs of my children and they have excelled. The PTO is very active and fundraises with family friendly activities. The teachers at AGS care about kids.
Horrible Cold learning environment. understaffed, overpopulated. Not a smile to be seen anywhere. staff and children are miserable. Inexperienced teachers.
AGS has teachers who really care about the students. The community is caring, supportive and nurturing -- helping each child achieve their full potential~
Love this school. Our daughter is in the PRE K program there. She is starting her first full year now and she simply loves all of her teachers, the teachers helpers, and therapists. They are so kind to her. But she has learned so much in such a short time. We are so excited to see how she will progress at the end of the school year. A++ To this school and all of the staff.
My 3rd grade son has been well cared for and nurtured by his teachers since he began at AGS in 1st grade. The school principal, his teachers, the social worker and every person involved in his education have been generous with their time and talent beyond their duty and beyond belief. Bravo to this fine institution.
Many great activities for the kids to participate in and enjoy. Active leadership by the principal, teachers, and school staff.
We have been involved with this school for going on 7 years now and I just can't say enough good things about it. We have 3 children and the oldest is Mentally Challenged. She has now moved on to the Middle School but AGS gave her what she needed and deserved while she was attending. They prepared her so well for moving on to the Middle School. She staff is so caring and the Character Counts program has a positive impact on the way the children treat eachother. I would definately recommend this school to anyone thinking of moving to the area.
AGS is a wonderful school. Every child is valued and viewed equally. Parents, teachers and students openly communicate with each other. Everyone in the school, from the principal to the youngest student, care about the community and well being of others. The pto does an excellent job of raising funds for extra programs and extra curricular activities. I am very happy with the curriculum. They have a half day or full day kindergarten option. I am also very satisfied with the spanish, art, and music programs for all students, kindergarten through fifth grade. Overall I feel the AGS community takes care of the needs and wants of its children.
