It is a new, beautiful school, that is very open. The staff are friendly and helpful. A reasonable amount of homework is given. The drop off, pick up and bus loading/unloading is down to a tee. My only complaint would be that I wasn't given much info as to the dress code, start and end times, cost of lunch or the where the kids were suppossed to go when they are dropped off in the morning. I would have liked to be more informed of those things before school started than having to ask the teacher a million questons at the beginning of school. Overall, very pleased!

My daughter has attended GJM for 1 1/2 years. I feel that she is receiving an adequate education, but that school should be a bit more of a challenge at times. I'm not sure that all staff members are there for the right reason, though. She was involved in an incident last year that was ignored by those who were supposed to be supervising. I think there could be a few more after-school activities for the kids to get involved in. Her class gets a fair amount of homework almost daily, which is good.

Gilbert J Mircovich is a small town school for 3rd and 4th graders and it's Golden. It's dependent on the teacher but most kids are not loaded down homework and almost all of the kids are active in after school activities. There seems to be very few kids with behavioral problems from home and no major incidents that have been brought to my attention in my 1 1/2 years in this town. Of course the Navy will be leaving soon and everything will change. It can't get any better but lets pray that the quality of kids/teachers attending stay the same. Mircovich Elementary has been a pleasure for my daughter to attend and she has the grades to prove it.

Great school with great teachers. Children attending GJM generally have a better attitude than those attending in neighboring towns.
