I have two daughters in Guild. My oldest has been in school here since Pre-K and she is now in third. I also have another daughter that is in the second grade. They have had the best teachers a parent could ask for. The staff and Mr. Taylor as well as Mrs. Fuqua is the best. I go to Guild out of zone because of these reasons.

My children both attend Guild Elementary and I couldn't be happier with the staff there. The principal not only knows each and every student he knows the family as well. The staff is very friendly and bend over backwards to help each child reach their full potential. They really do care about their students at Guild and I would and have recommended this school to other parents.

Guild School has highly qualified teachers who care about all the students and are dedicated to making sure they get a quality education. My grandchildren have had outstanding teachers who go the extra mile to make sure my grandchildren get what they need to make them lifelong learners.

Our first experience with Guild Elementary & its faculty, staff, principal, & students was one that made a life-long, lasting impression. Being a diversified family from a small town with high educational expectations, we were "WOW'd" by the unconditional & unceasing commitment the wonderful faculty & staff at Guild have for their children. We know each and every day that our boys are loved, respected, protected, engaged, excited, & very well educated by some of THE MOST dedicated professionals in the business of education! We couldn't have asked for a better school for our sons & our family of which to become a part. Mr. Taylor is the cornerstone of leadership & sets an example after which ALL principals should follow. We will always be indebted to each & every person at Guild for giving our children & our family a wonderful educational "home"!!!

If I could refer parents to any elementary school in Sumner County, it would be Guild Elementary! It is an outstanding school! I believe that if the "head" is leading and doing what is needed, the rest will follow. Mr. Taylor is a great leader/administrator and it shows in all of his work and effort. The faculty and staff of Guild follow his lead and they all show such love and compassion for the children. It is wonderful to see that they take interest in ALL of their students and believe in every one of them. My son is now in the 5th grade and has been a part of the Guild family since pre-school. He has enjoyed his time there and I am happy that he experienced his elementary years at Guild. I am proud to say that my son is a Guild Gator and I am the parent of one!!!

Guild Elementary is by far one of the most exceptional schools in middle Tennessee. My daughters and sons have absolutely loved their experiences at Guild. As parents we have been more than proud to let others in our community know just how special the atmosphere at Guild is. In my opinion, the primary origin for Guild's exceptional environment begins with Mr. Taylor. He genuinely cares for his students. I've watched him for years call them all by name. Mr. Taylor is also surrounded by an exceptional office staff and obviously his teachers. Over the last 10 years we've experienced many of the amazing, talented and caring teachers that Guild has to offer. Mr. Taylor and Guild have been a blessing to our family. We will truly miss his leadership and the environment he has cultivated when are our children advance from elementary school. Mr. Taylor - thank you for your sacrifice and for your integrity in which you lead with. Your values and strength in character are contagious.

Guild Elementary is the best!!! I currently have a 5th grader in Guild, who is a life tme Guild Gator (has been there beginning with kindergarden). I have 2 other children who graduated from Guild. Mr. Taylor is the most caring and respectable person I have ever met. His caring and leadership carries over to his teachers and staff. Mr. Taylor knows each of his over 600 students by name and knows who there families are as well. He and his staff know when birthday's occur (and even announce them in the morning), when a child needs special attention, and when a child does something special. My children have all loved Guild, the teachers and Mr. Taylor and I am so thankful that the Mr. Taylor and his staff have been there for me and the children.

Guild Elementary is a wonderful school. My son is currently in first grade there and I am very happy with the school and the staff. I have never seen such a caring man as Mr. Taylor, you can tell that he truly loves what he does and he loves each child in that school. Both he, Mrs. Fuqua (the vice principal) and the teaching staff are always available for questions and suggestions. They are very proactive to send emails so that we are always aware of any and all events happening at the school and encourage the parents to volunteer and participate in the school activities. I am extremely pleased about my son's education there, I do believe it is top noch and the best in this county.

My daughter has attended Guild for the past four years and we are truly going to miss this school when we leave. Mr. Taylor is one of the best prinicipals I know. He not only cares about his staff but he cares about 'his' children. Our family loves Guild Elementary and all it's staff.

Guild Elementary is the best elementary school in Sumner County by far! We moved here from out of state and Mr. Taylor accepted both of my children due to my research of all of the schools. My children's needs were met, not only academically, but socially, emotionally, and physically as well. They taught "the whole child" not just "the test"!! The school is so great that we have been commuting 40 minutes each day for 4 years and there is an elementary school 3 miles from our house. We tried the school the is close to our house, but they caused our children stress beyond belief. Mr. Taylor greets each child by name in the mornings, he knows when their birthdays are, and he notices if they are sick or have been absent. He makes each child want to be present for school and if they are present, then they are learning. We are so glad we chose to leave our children at Guild, and the extra traveling time is worth every minute when your children are happy to be learning.

Does your child's school have 600+ students who are in attendance? Does the principal know EVERY SINGLE child in the building by name? The principal at Guild does. I'll leave it at that!!! As far as test scores, I'd put my kids toe to toe with any student from any other school, public OR private. Oh, I already did! My son went to private school in 6th grade and held his own just fine up against other kids who had always been in private school. You can NOT beat Guild for a K-6 Educatonal experience!! I'm not only a parent, but an educator as well (not at Guild).

Guild has been wonderful for my kids. We moved here last year, and sadly, are moving again. Though the commute to downtown work was long, we moved to Gallatin because of Guild. Mr. Taylor has fought hard for the school with the District's recent budget battles with the county government. Everyone I have dealt with has been very helpful and genuinely seems to care about my children. We are going to miss Guild! **Just a footnote, and not a reflection on the school. The Sumner county government continually underfunds the school district and each year results in a major budget battle. County residents just failed to pass a wheel tax that would have added additional funding to the schools. At this point, it has not significantly impacted the schools but it is only a matter of time.

We love Guild Elementary. We have 2 boys in school there, one is in 2nd grade & the other is in 4th. Guild's principal is the best. He has such a big caring heart. He loves the children, teachers & staff. This is evident by his active participation in the daily school activities. The teachers are great, too. They truly care about their students' education & not only the education but their overall well being. We are very proud to have such a great school in our county.

I have two children at Guild. We moved out of zone this past year, and I love Guild so much that I got permission to have them continue attending. My daughter has autism and requires special attention and instruction. My family praises her progress every time they see her. She really has come so far, and I owe this to her dedicated team of teachers.She and my son love their teachers like family. Mr. Taylor and Mrs. Fuqua bring new meaning to the phrase " a principal is your pal". They both know every child at Guild by name and are always available to help students and parents. I am grateful everyday to the wonderful teachers, staff and principals. They really do love my children and are great communicators with parents. In my opinion, there is no better start for your chilld's education than Guild Elementary.

I moved to Gallatin 6 years ago with a 3 & 1 yr old & we didn't know anyone when we moved here. I reviewed schools online then drove around. Doing research helped but this school is great. I'm so HAPPY with Mr. Taylor & Guild. Everyone in the school even the lunch ladies care about all the kids. My oldest is in 4th and had the same teacher, Mrs. Cron for 2nd & 3rd. It was wonderful thing to have him with her twice & with the whole class. She jumped right into 3rd grade without a beat & it showed from the TCAP to behavior. He says she'll be his favorite teacher, ever. Moving here without knowing a soul we have meet other parents who have loved a teacher or two. We have requested teachers for both boys & luckily Mr. Taylor lets us but he also makes great choices too. He matches each student to the teacher for the best outcome for both teacher & student. Maybe I'm lucky that his choices have matched my requests. Also, I love that I get emails from Mr.Taylor with probably a couple hundred other parents who care & love their kids, their friends & teachers but it keeps me informed & reminded about things going on in the school.

I have had three children attend Guild, one of whom still goes to the school. My children excelled at Guild, earning a 6 on the TCAP Writing Assessment as 5th graders. They had teachers who were excellent instructors and wonderfully caring people. My children learned so many valuable lessons, many of which came from their exposure to children who were different from them, lessons and appreciation for others that may have not learned in other schools. Their teachers do SO much for their students and with their students...they have tough jobs, taking their children from where they get them as Kindergarteners to such academic success as 5th graders that they are truly prepared for Rucker, Shafer, Station Camp, and other middle schools. Guild teachers are the epitome of excellence. It takes a truly special and caring person and excellent classroom educator to teach at Guild. Guild ROCKS!

Our oldest daughter attended Guild from K-5th grade. As a middle school student now, she has commented about her teachers at Guild as being her favorites. She mentions things that she learned at Guild being helpful now, as she tackles middle school. She want to thank Ms. Corbin, Mrs. Morrison, Mrs. Coles, Mrs. McDuffee, Mrs. Rollins, and Mrs. Balturshot as being awesome and teaching her so well that she is a successful, confident middle school student. Our other 2 daughters enjoy going to school. They get up ready and excited to start their day. They love their teachers, Mrs. Goodwin and Mrs. Fussell. They come home to play school and recap what they have learned at school this year. It is a joy to listen to them 'act' like their teachers. They obviously feel loved and are encouraged to do their best at school. It is comforting to know that our children are loved and encouraged at school. Thank you to all the teachers at Guild for showing children that you love them every day!! Thank you Mr. Taylor and Mrs. Fuqua for being administrators that we feel confident that you are encouraging your teachers to give their all and love our children. You have an amazing staff at Guild!!

My other two children are still at Guild; they both have beem there since K now one is in 3rd and the other is in 1st. They will stay there until they go to middle school. My children are out of zone to go there because it is such a wonderful school. Just so you know they have a program that helps feed some of the students who would not eat otherwise over the weekend. The teachers are Awesome!! They will help you any way they can at any time you need them.

I love Guild, I have three sons and all of then were at Guild, my oldest son is now at Rucker Stewart but attended four yrs there. My other two son have been there since kindergarten. I have loved every teacher my children have had and Mr. Taylor is so sincere in his constant efforts to made Guild a great school and as a parent I'm glad to say he has been successful at doing so. The school just sent home there TCAP test results for 2008 and Guild students and teachers did a wonderful job ! There is nothing more comforting than knowing that the teachers really love and care about the children and are looking out for their best interests. To all the staff at Guild- Keep up the good work I'm proud to say my boys are Guild Gators ! parent of three

What a wonderful place to be! The teachers and staff are fabulous. My son loves going and can't wait to get there each morning. I can't imagine any other place that he would get a better education. There are over 160 students that choose to go here out of zone and the Principal welcomes each one. Uniqueness and diversity are embraced and the 'family atmosphere' is unmatched by any other school. I only wish it was K-12. I dread the day he has to move on to Middle School. Thanks Guild for loving our kids and nurturing them each day!!!

My daughter has been in Guild since the third grade. She is now in the fifth. Her Father passed away last year and the Teachers and Staff were a blessing to my family. They were with us every step of the way to help her through this. It is difficult for her to face everyday life, but she always wants to get up and go to school. I would like to thank everyone at Guild for everything they did for us. Cyndi Tallent-Parent

We love the school. We have had wonderful teachers, and excellent grades. The only concerns with the school would be safety. There is always a lot of people going in and out of the school in the mornings. Don't get me wrong I do think parents should be able to take there children into school for the first week or two so that they are comfortable, but they need to put a limit on walking your kids to class. They have also let my child leave the school with some of my family members, and never asked who they were or if they were on the list of people that could pick her up.

Guild Elementary has been a great experience for my son for the beginning of his educational ladder. He was having trouble with reading and reading comprehension and diagnoised as language impaired. The teachers that he has come in contact with, both in the classroom and in resource and speech environments have been great. They have worked with me to set goals for him to slowly be inclusive and up to grade level. He is happy when he goes to school and looked forwarded to going to different classes for his language difficulties. He is now in the 5th grade and spending more time in the regular classroom with the rest of his class.
