We are new in town and the teachers and staff were very child's teacher's communication is A+ . They made my child feel very comfortable and happy to be there. They also made sure he made it to me safely during dismissal.

I thought I was the only parent being treated horribly by the staff. I feel like we don't have to put up with it. We should be allowed to be involved in our childs education other than PTO fundraisers and homework. Every single time I have asked for something such as a change in transportation, and even ...  Read more

I was thinking of moving to Gulf Shores. Now, I am sure it is not a good idea. Sounds like the schools need to get their act together.

The leadership is nonexistent, the support staff is often rude and clueless and the teaching staff is sub-par. I met with the Principal at the beginning of the school year and was given a " that's just the way we do things around here" speech and sent on my way. The PTO is a joke but might not be their ...  Read more

I have just enrolled my children at GSE. Under very trying and difficult circumstances the office staff was extremely helpful. The children love their new school. I think it is very helpful the way the school interacts with the community in general.

Both my children have attended this school. It is my opinion the teachers are creative and caring. I do not agree with the fund raisers because if children are not able to participate they are left out of an on campus party during school hours. They have added band this year and it has been very well ...  Read more

Over the years I have had three children enrolled in G.S.E. The oldest graduated in 2000 but the younger two are still in attendance(4th & 9th grades). I must say that when my oldest child attended this school I was not very happy and neither was he. However, my 2 younger children have never attended ...  Read more
