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.
I love being a teacher at Gunpowder Elementary School. Everyone is helpful and the school is so welcoming! I am very happy to be a part of such an amazing team of teachers and students!
My daughter is soo happy in this school, it's a safe clean school with great teaching skills.Parent involvement is great too basically this school provides excellent experience.
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.
A very well managed school! Safe, clean, no troubles and the kids are learning!!!
I love that they are very family oriented. My son is so happy here. His teachers and the parent volunteers are very helpful.
This is a wonderful school. I love school , I wish there was a Gunpowder Middle School. My daughter has been an A student since third grade. Her teachers were very helpful and sincere.
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.
I am a grandparent and I am very pleased with this school and the activities they provide make it a family experience.
My daughter started Kindergarten at Gunpowder this year. My husband & I couldn't be happier with the school, as well as the teachers!
Both my son and daughter had a fabulous year! I am so pleased with the education they are receiving! The staff and administration work very hard at keeping Gunpowder a top-notch school. It is also nice to see such strong parent support
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
Great school. Huge support from PTA. Very impressed with the education my children are recieving.
I love this school my children came from a poorly ran city school to the best school in the county. I feel that this school fit both of my childrens needs, even my special needs child.The staff involvement is wonderful. I Love, LOVE this School.
