It is not great, but it's not bad either. For the funding they have, along with the students and parents they have to work with, they really do quite a good job. My son has attended GB for 3 years. He likes and knows not only his homeroom teachers, but his extracurricular teachers (art, PE, library), principal, counselor, gifted teacher, etc. They ALL seem to work together on my son's education, and I feel like I can ask any one of them at any time about my son and receive a thorough answer as to how he is doing not only in their area, but anything that they had heard or noticed. I wish that the school was doing better overall and able to focus on more difficult material in the regular classroom, but I truthfully believe that it is because most children who go to this school suffer from a severe lack of parental involvement in their education, which in turn gets blamed on the school. Education begins in the home, and a lot of parents in Albuquerque just find it easier to put all of the blame on the teachers, principals, and counselors instead. It's a true shame, because the children just continue to suffer! Keep up the good work, GB! There are parents who believe in you.
