GJAL is an outstanding school with top notch facilities and an excellent teaching staff. My son is in the 4th grade and every instructor he has worked with since kindergarten has been concerned with his welfare and development. Our school principals have been so good that we are constantly losing them to positions of higher responsibility.

Great school. My daughter loves the principal. Couldn't ask for a better principal. Wonderful teachers. Mrs Rose and Miss Brock were great.

this school is great for my kids. i do wish some teachers made more of an effort to get the parents involved, and stay connected with their students home life. but other than that, the school is a safe, fun place for my kids to learn.

This school does a superior job of integrating parents into the curriculum. My children have both attended GJAL since the inception of the educational careers, and there is not a school in the area which could compare to GJAL on many levels. The principal, teachers and ancillary staff are excellent in all they do. As an active parent, I see the outstanding efforts which go into every activity at GJAL, both educational and recreational. This facility and its staff are, without question, five star.

I think this school does a fantastic job. The principal is readily available and the teachers seem to have a good handle on their classrooms. I enjoy the many opportunities that the parents have to interact with school functions. This is my daughter's fourth year at GJAL and she loves it.

AS a fairly new school, its facilities are very good and up to date. The principal is always available to all parents, and works very hard to make this a good school. The is a good amount of parental involvment--although it is always the same group of parents who volunteer. The inclusion of music, art, etc. is less than suffecient. A good school overall, but there is a lack of gifted children's programming.

As a new school this should give the students a edge in advance education however most of the parents feel it is an unneccary school. The area is of old values and feel using old build is sufficent. I feel the school is an asset to the school system and is doing a good job. We need to reeducated our teachers to keep up with the standards of today.
