KG is a wonderful, clean little elementary school located inside the beautiful Colonial Heights neighborhood. Everyone gets to know everybody there. The principal truly cares about the school and is very responsive to parents' concerns. The teachers and staff are great, too. Check out the most recent impressive test scores. The PTA is very dedicated to making the school the best place it can be for the kids. We love being part of the KG family.

We are part of the Gibran Family since my son began Kindergarten there. He is now in High school and we still are and always will be proud to be part of the Gibran Family. A small enough environment where kids feel safe and among friends. Filled with outstanding Teachers, Staff, PTA and a Principal who's priority is the kids.

This school is a hidden gem. The school is small enough that everyone gets to know your child . The prinicpal is strict and extremely concern for the safety of your child . This school scored higher than some of the more talked about schools in 2013-2014 State exams ( check it out for yourself) . I have two children in this school and they love it .It's my neigborhood school and the campus is beautiful .

The rating of this school is based on 2008 scores. Don't know why that is . Should be changed caused for the last five years this school has rocked !!!!! I guess some would consider this school the underdog ....fine with us. Other great feature is the PTA ....they work really hard for the students . I am happy with this school.

Clean, has great leadership, good values and overall happy with this PK-8th grade school so far. There are huge differences in schools in this city and Gibran does deserve a higher rating than many. I hope my son makes many good memories throughout the years here!

Kahlil Gibran Should be getting a higher rating than a three! Compared to other schools Kahlil Gibran did very well on the New York State scores. I have three children invested in the school. Thus far we are very happy with the staff and administration. We have a strong PTA here. My children are happy. We look forward to a successful year ahead!

Some complaints regarding this school are due to the failing system, not the school/staff (eg. no academic support). Schools/YPS have responsibilities, but so do the parents. We also should only account for our own experiences not that of others for fear of inaccuracy. As we write these reviews, I hope we bear that in mind when writing them.

We've been very pleased with the school. The dedicated staff makes all the difference. My daughter is quite happy there, has been there 2 years, and has excelled. Dedicated PTA also a big plus.

This is our first year in Yonkers Public School district. I have two children at Kahlil Gibran - first grade and pre-k. I have to say I am much happier than when they were in a local private school last year. My first grader enjoys learning and made the honor roll. The first thing my pre-k'r does when she gets home is her HOMEWORK!! They are definitely enjoying the whole learning process and their teachers have a whole lot to do with it! I am happy and hope to get more involved with the school. I don't know why the school only got a 2 in it's rating but I hope it goes up! Also, I hope they correct the spelling of the school KHALIL Gibran.

I have to say ...what a difference when the right Prinicipal is heading our school . Kids are wearing uniforms (and are happy about it ) , the teachers are re - energized, the aides are happy and there is a sense of community . Last year the atmosphere was horrible but the teachers were great .....the school is very clean , safe and diverse. The PTA Rocks .....and if any school is worth fighting for it is this school !Welcome new prinicipal Ms. Dianne White and Asst . prinicpal ......what a difference a year makes !

I didn't have a good experience on my daughter first year, hope for a better one this year.

So far so good, but we're really reserving judgement until the little one finishes pre-k. We're also planning on getting more involved this year. I will say this, they do keep us informed and up-to-date.

GIbran is a wonderful school with nurturing and dedicated teachers. This small school provides the children with an excellent education as well as opportunities for extracurricular social activities. The involved parents association energizes the school with countless raffles, school dances, field days etc. The school is small which allows the administration to get to know each child. My daughter, now a Pearls student, was very happy at Gibran. She was well prepared for her transition into the Pearls school. Hopefully the school will become a pre-k - 8th grade school. Sending your child to this school in a great neighborhood is a no brainer.

I love the school, the teachers are wonderful...I can't say anything bad about it. I hope Yonkers can find it in their budget to build this school to be a Pre-k to 8th grade school.

I loved this school, and so did my Son. Everyone learned his funny personality and just saw things his way. Everyone was a Mommy to him. There are few schools with such a loving staff.

I absolutely love this school, I just wish that it will go to 8th grade so my son and daughter can stay here. I don't want to leave, I love the teachers, they all have been incredible and my kids have learned so much. Anyone that pays for Catholic school is crazy, not when you have a school like khalil Gibran and the phenomenal teachers that they have here!
