My school is great. The teachers are very helpful. My children are special needs and everyone at Gauley Bridge Elementary has always been extremely friendly and accommodating.

I love this school. I did not hesitate sending my children to this school, even though I do have a choice between 2 schools. The faculty is great! I love the principal!
