This school provided my children with the attention and care one might expect from a small community school or a private school. Teachers and administrators know the students and guide and educate them accordingly. Communication with parents was very good! Phone calls were always returned. Extra curricular activities were more inclusive than some larger schools.
Small class sizes and a small school community allowed the professional staff the ability to know the students and guide them in their social development. Responsiveness to parent calls was also very helpful.
This elementary school has all the charm and the benefits of a small town with the educational system of a large school. The small classroom style endures individual and in most cases personalized education. My daughter has been going to GGM for three years, and I couldn't imagine a better environment. She is flourishing. She knows all the teachers in the school and they know her, and the curriculum provides an advanced STEM structure to ensure her transition success to high school. We moved here to Tuxedo for the school system, and we are grateful we made that choice not only for my daughter, but for my other two children as well.
This school is private education for the price of a public school. Not to be confused with the fact that you still need to be a parent to your child. Lacking in extra curricular activities, but makes up for it in the quality of education.
Great school, when you call you get the principal on the phone and she knows who you are and who your child is. Teachers are all involved and caring. They could use a few more clubs etc. But that could be worked on! Overall Great!
