I have two daughters at Gardenview now. I am pleased with their teachings. My youngest daughter started going to the school as a Pre-K, now she is in the Kindergarten. She is able to read just about any level 1 book without much stumbling at all. I am also excited about their support classes, specifically the CLUE class, in which my oldest is a member. She is learning a lot from there. WIth the new principal, I am sure that things are a little different than they once were. She seems to have it together and encourages parent involvement at any time.

Gardenview is a good example of a neighborhood school working. They have a new principal this year who has done an excellent job. She is open to new ideas. The staff is caring. I would recommend this school to any one in the Whitehaven community.

I feel that Gardenview Elementary is a pretty good school. However, I don't think that the school should place a time on how long a parent should visit. This notion casts a negative image on this great neighborhood school. It makes one think that maybe there is something to hide. The county schools and some of the outstanding city schools don't seem to have a problem with parents'visitation. I feel that the staff and principal at Gardenview should reconsider this rule that has been implemented. As long as there is an understanding that the visiting parent will not disrupt the orderly running of the class, this shouldn't be an issue at all. Parents should be welcomed at all times.
