  • Gilbert is a school with a staff that stands out to our family. That wants there students to learn all they can beinging with Pre-K. Also make sure they have fun. Everyone is always nice. Thumbs up for the Pre-K teachers for being so sweet and careing for my granddaughter that didn't take it well at all with her family leaving her with all these people she didn't know shes cried and so did we. Her teachers was outstanding by knowing how to care for her and made her feel safe. Now shes fine thank you so much. Also you always see the Principal taking part and shareing the love for the student and the school. Gilbert #1 Thanks to all.

  • Gilbert is a wonderful school with a very caring staff. Our daughters teachers have all been wonderful. Only two problems we have had has been a couple office staff trying to pull more authority than they have and dropping of the music program. They should understand that music is as important as math or social studies. With the experience of a good music class and a good teacher (which Rachel had and loved)the benefits to their other classes are immeasurable
