The administration at Mt Gallant Elementary School is very structured, professional and supportive of parents, teachers and students. The teachers are knowledgeable, approachable and encouraging to students and parents. Parent involvement is extremely high and there are so many great clubs and activities for the students to participate in. My children love Mt. Gallant and look forward to going to school every day!
We would like to send a heart felt THANK YOU to Mrs. Ashley Ghent and Mrs. Erin Baker for doing such a phenomenal job of teaching our daughters this year. Not only have they grown academically, but they have also grown emotionally and spiritually. Thank you both for having open lines of communication with us and for attending and/or celebrating the accomplishments of our daughters. This has been a great year for them! Thank you both for taking such great care of them in the classroom. We appreciate you and wish the both of you a successful career!
I'm very dissappointed in the lack of volunteer opportunities, the communication skills of the staff. My kindergartener tells me he hates school and that he does not want to go. He used to love school and this breaks my heart. We are currently researching other possibilities.
I have two students at Mount Gallant. I have had good experiences as well as bad ones. There are excellent teachers at this school but we have experienced some that do not relate well to students or parents. My child has asked questions when she doesn't understand and had the teacher to just turn and walk away and then been scolded later because she didn't ask questions. One of her classes is very loud and disruptive. Some serious discipline problems are sometimes left up to parent to try and resolve with other parents. When my child is being mistreated at school she sometimes does not tell teachers because she gets in trouble as well. So usually it is left up to parent to talk with teachers, parents, principal, etc. to resolve problem. VERY EXHAUSTIVE!
I love Mt. Gallant Elementary and so does my daughter. The one thing that really impresses me about the school is how much the principal is involved in the activites that go on in the school. How many principals can name the majority of the students in his school and I am not referring to the trouble makers. Mr. Beard is wonderful, and his positive attitude as a positive effect on his entire staff.
