MRS. HAMILTON BEST TEACHER AT BEST SCHOOL EVER!!!!!!! As a new parent with children that had just moved to America from another country where English nor Spanish is the primary language, the teachers and staff have opened up and been very patience and helpful with teaching my daughter. I also love this school because of the diversity unlike other school that said there ESL programs is targeted towards Spanish language Giesinger is totally different and accepted that my daughter primary language is not Spanish. She comes home everyday excited with what she is learning and love explaining what her day is full of, she really like when she can tell the class what certain things are in her language. I am just grateful and blessed to have my daughter enrolled in this wonderful school with the BEST TEACHER MRS. HAMILTON 2nd grade class.

This is a great school. All three of my children have attended this school. My youngest is currently going there and loves it. The teachers and staff are great and care very much for the education of the children. My oldest is in High school now and when she travels to Giesinger with me it is amazing how many of the staff still remeber her.

My grandson goes to this school and I have been there several times and met with faculty and staff and have found them to be helpful and kind. The school is clean and rooms easy to find. My grandson is taught well and treated with kindness.

My son attends Pre-K and I have been a bit disillusioned with his teacher. But overall I believe it is academically superior to other schools in the area
