My sons teacher this year would never respond to my questions or concerns. The students got a weekly progress report that had to be signed by a parent. On multiple occasions I wrote a question or comment in the parent question/comment section. His teacher never responded to any of them. Very unprofessional.
Many issues with this school. Completely agree with the last review about there being no accountability of the staff. A certain staff member continually ignored my child being physically bullied on the playground. When I would report the incident to the principal she would take action with the students, but not the staff member who should have handled it. If I didn't report it it was allowed to go on. I had to report incidents on multiple occasions and it was the same staff member over and over. When I asked to make a formal complaint with the superintendent the principal told me I was welcome to write a letter she would put in the staff members file.
While there are some awesome teachers that are very dedicated, there are also some who are there for the paycheck and little else. Unfortunately the new principal is not one of action or accountability of her staff. The great teachers are great, and the others are held to no accountability. Very frustrating place. Wish my tax dollars could could be directed to those who take the time and put in the effort, doing a splendid job.
While Rochester Schools often get a bum rap, Gonic School is a diamond in the rough. There are great, caring teachers with a wonderful supportive staff. It is a nurturing school and a VERY active parent group (PTA). The school has a brand new playground with modern, exciting equipment. It is definitely the best school around!

Gonic School is great for my son. He is actually very excited to go to school everyday and the teachers are very involved in all of the children. I can not submit the same review from a school district that we previously lived in across the state.
