This is my son's first year at Gunpowder. They have been great so far helping him transfer as a new student. The guidance counselor has met with him and checked on his progress. So far I am very pleased with everything.

My daughter is in her second year at Gunpowder and I couldn't be more pleased with the faculty and staff. I feel safe leaving her in their care and I know she is getting a great education. This must be said, some of the parents are not thrilled with the principal and rules in general, but I find Mrs. Smith to be wonderful and very professional.

Gunpowder is a wonderful school. My daughter is starting her second year there and I couldn't be happier. We moved before she started K and I am so pleased we moved within Gunpowder's school zone. Parent envolvement at the school is wonderful. Teachers and staff are very helpful, great with the students and kind. The principal I have heard can be strict and by the books, but I have had nothing but good experiences with her.

My son just finished kindergarten this year and I was so impressed with the school and its staff. They really care about each child and their families. The standardized test scores they sent home this year showed way above state averages and higher than other schools in the area.

My daughter was in elementary class this year. I was very impressed with the amount of learning activities. The attention paid to teaching the students to read. It made a big difference to my daughter. Just to see my daughter sit down and have the love of reading at her age. I was also impressed with the involvement of the parents, and the helpfulness of the teachers.

Great school! My kids transfered from Cromwell Valley because we moved, but I am very impressed with the way that Gumpowder has shown that they can offer the same program, love and respect for the Students that we recieved. I was broken hearted at first I must admit... but I have realized that Gunpowder is a Awesome some that can stand tall with any Magnet Program
