If your kid is average or above average, do not send this to school. teachers are good but the school policies regarding work in class and homework are not focused on enriching their existing knowledge. Look at test scores below (obtained from county website). For grade 3, Math scores went from 81.5 in 2010 to 49.6 in 2014 . Scores for Math : Enrollment year Ending 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 Grade 3 81.5 78.2 75.9 70.1 49.6 Grade4 78.4 85.7 82.3 83.5 78.8 Grade5 74.4 78.0 71.7 62.2 60.8 Scores for Reading : Enrollment year Ending 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 Grade 3 75.9 74.4 75.9 64.4 70.8 Grade4 83.1 88.3 86.3 86.1 74.1 Grade5 81.7 93.3 81.4 83.8 73

Great, dedicated teachers. All three of my children had great experiences. The principal is wonderful and caring, and the school is cheerful and bright.

We couldn't be happier with the education and care our children have gotten at GES. The principal, Stephanie Brant, is smart, caring and helpful. Almost all of the teachers we have dealt with have been terrific. People sometimes ask me how my kids do at GES -- they are blond-haired, blue-eyed boys in a school that's very multi-culti. The answer is: They do great! We value the diversity and appreciate all that our boys learn about other cultures. I do wish there were more ways for parents to get involved, but that's not a huge issue. My involvement has been welcomed, and I've been as involved as I can for a working mom. Also, one of my sons has a learning issue, and the school was so helpful in finding him resources and creating an IEP. In short, we're thrilled with GES.

DEFIANTLY RECOMMENDED! My child attended GES from Pre-K to 4th grade. It is a fantastic school! I can't remember one bad teacher; actually there wasn't any! They were all funny or kind, or serious but not mean! But they sure did teach well! I have to other children who didn't have one problem when they were at this school. Wonderful school!

A fantastic school with great teachers. We were hesitant at first but the county supports this diverse school population incredibly well. Our kids needed a higher more demanding curriculum than the rest of the student body and the great teachers there teamed up and found the solution that fit each kid. Even the lack of parental involvment is improving quickly. Great school. Thanks GES.

My daughter attended Kindergarten at Gaithersburg Elementary for the 2004-05 school year. She also attended the ELO program during the summer of 2004. I was truly impressed with the ELO program and how the program helped prepare my daughter for kindergarten. When she started Kindergarten in the fall, her teacher, Ms. Day, was simply wonderful with her. My daughter loved her so much that she often called me Ms. Day at home. My daughter is reading and writing short sentences. She has excellent math skills as well. Our family has relocated to NC due to military orders. I am hopeful that the school she will attend here will be half as good as GES. Thank you: Ms. Jones, Mr. Rowe, Ms. Day and the wonderful staff at GES. Thank you for giving my daughter a great foundation and introduction to school!
