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!
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!
