I belive that this school challenges our children on a level that has them thinking because it is one thing to figure out a problem, but its another thing to know step by step what to do and that is what the teachers strive for . The staff disciplines to keep the kids in their place, but not to the point where they find that more important than education. The principle cares about all his students & puts them first or makes decisions with them in mind. In my opinion, I love this school and the teachers.

I am troubled by the negative remarks regarding Gallistel. I feel they are unfair, if not dishonest. As a parent, I found the staff well qualified and committed to their teaching profession. The principle is highly motivated and genuinely cares for the students and the community. One cannot blame poor scores entirely on the staff and administration. If parents are not involved, and the child doesn t care then poor results are certain. Many families are immigrants, and are struggling economically. The importance of an education may be second to surviving the day s challenges. However, if the parent cares and motivates their child they will learn and succeed educationally at Gallistel.

This school is an awful school. I'm a former honors student, who happened to be in the gifted program. This school had me doing absolutely nothing to get straight A's. The kids aren't challenged. Most teachers don't care if the students succeed or not, and the gifted program has the same amount of work to do than all of the other classes. I moved to a suburb where i was enrolled into one of americas best high schools, where i was placed in all honors and ap classes. Once i was in i had no idea what all of the others kids already new. I was forced to do 10x the studying on top of the 4 hours of homework i already was assigned. If you have an option of sending your children to another school, i recommend you do.

To me, a parent thinks this is a great school for my child. All her past teachers were really good and very caringing. I can't believe others would say different, and as for the principle, he is always looking out for the children, and is doing his best on getting one building for everyone. AS for the staff, they're always with an eye out on the kids. So this is a great and caring school. Teacher's and staff...keep up the good work, even if you do have 3 building's to work with(we desreve to be under 1 roof like everybody else).
