  • the only thing i liked was the open door policy in the child is going to the fifth and i feel we had to fight to get that. i thought that was ridiclous. ifelt my child was labeled for changing schools, the last one challenger. i didn't get that easy track but was given a hard time for my fourth grader getting behind.

  • My granddaughter is attending Mountain Gap Elementary School and just loves it. She is in the 4th grade and made straight A's for the first time. She became a patrol girl this year and just loves it. Located in a great neighborhood in SE Huntsville, AL35803

  • I have truly been impressed by Mountain Gap. They have a clearly laid out plan that is easy to track when and if your child falls behind as soon as it starts to happen as opposed to waiting until you get a surprise on the report card. I wouldn't sent my children any where else.
