Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

We are BEYOND impressed with Mrs. Lakin, the Principal, her staff and Mrs. Messersmith. We have had several bad experiences with schools prior and were SO encouraged with this school's administration, attentiveness/responsiveness with any issue and the general feeling they would do anything to help a child succeed. The teaching/facilitation of Mrs. Messersmith was PHENOMINAL. Advanced curriculum kept us learning at an amazing rate. We feel very ready for next level ...and a good break in between! Really changed my perception of public schooling, but still desire a faith-based optional component/moral basis to help develop more empathy, accountability and love for others.

THIS SCHOOL HAS SOME OF THE BEST TEACHERS, WE LIKE THAT THIS SCHOOL IS FOR KINDERGARTEN THRU 1ST GRADE ONLY. AS PARENTS WE SEE THAT KIDS ARE DOING REALLY GOOD PROGRESS ON READING. "BUZZ BE A READER" PROGRAM IS ENCOURAGING PARENTS TO READ MORE TO THEIR CHILDREN.

Mrs. Duncan is terrific. Principal is very good. Adventure Club is very good. Parents are the weakest part of the school.

This is a great elementary. I love that it is only K-1st. The principal is wonderful and is really envolved. The teachers are genuine, fun, and keep an open communication with parents. This school has helped my son reach his highest potential and he is now in SAGE. Great district, great school!

I am on the fence about this school. I have had some great interactions and not so great as well. Since parent/principal/teacher interactions are minimal, I would think that the teachers and principal would be on their best behaviors but I guess some just do not care.

The academics at Gashland is excellent and my kids love the teachers and principal. Very caring staff and great at encouraging kids to learn. Parent-child studies keep parent involved in child's learning. Definitely a hidden treasure!
