Despite being located in one of Philadelphia's roughest neighborhood's, Edwad Gideon is able to offer children a level of education that will prepare them for top notch middle and high schools. Children are prepared to compete with the best!
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!
I love our school because the students are great and their parents are heavily involved. Also, it's very family-like; we are all very close-knit!
We have a great student body and staff that loves and cares about each other. We are an urban schoo who offers Chinese!!!!!
Gideon rocks! Most supportive and friendly staff ever, and we are led by one awesome principal! I love going into work every day, knowing what a great team I have to work with!
The most caring and enthusiastic teachers and admin staff make for the most caring and enthusiastic young learners!
Gideon has wonderful students, a hard working and caring staff, and we're led by a great principal! We've got Chinese classes, drumline, knitting, colorguard, and a seriously talented Chess Team. Wherever you look, there are great things going on at Gideon!
Gideon had an enthusiastic, energetic and dedicated principal, boasts an excellent faculty and staff AND a knitting group!!
The principal keeps the teachers and staff focused on what is the most important thing about Gideon: The Students!
Gideon is a wonderful school because of the supportive and dedicated staff and wonderful students.
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
