Gideon has a bright, caring and hard working principal and student body. Together the school is striving to be the best they can be. Last year almost every class had their own tadpole growing almost from inception. You can't get much greener than that!

The entire school community truly cares for all the students. An environment has been created that children love to exist in. With an average daily attendance of over 94% students are not only here regularly, but sometimes from 7:30am- 6:00pm...by choice :o) Edward Gideon has a standard of excellence

Teaching was variable - a few great teachers, but many who were near retirement and disengaged, cynical and unenthusiastic. Our child bore the brunt of that. Perhaps the new principal this year will helpful.

Dont let the AYP scores fool you. Teaching the test doesnt amount to teaching them what they need to know to move on
