I was able to volunteer for one of the 4th grade classes last year and was so impressed with the teachers system of involving the students in every aspect of the learning process. The school seems to have a system of friendly competition that motivates the students to try and do they very best in the class rooms and on campus. To watch every hand raise when the teacher asks a question, is very impressive. This is a vibrant, active and happy school, with an excellent staff devoted to teaching with a flare.

Best school my son has ever been to. They connect with the kids on a deeper level, and most of all they learn advanced stuff or what ever level they need easly. Awsome staff!

We have been pleased with gaffney lane. the teachers for the most part are great with the kids and keep them on their toes. they have computer lab, music and P.E. all once a week and also still have a counselor. the school is old and could use updating but overall, is is a good learning environment for the kids.

With the exception of a few teachers over the years, I have been very pleased with Gaffney. I am a teacher at a different school and know what my children should be learning and when. Overall, I believe my children are getting a very good education there.

both of the prior reviews are definitely outdated. The school is lacking and has continued to go downhill for the past few years. While some teachers do seem to care they are few and far between.

The principal at this school seems to be very involved with the parents and students and makes you feel very welcome to participate. The staff is pretty welcoming and the reading program they have has done wonders for my child.
