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.
