My daughter is in 2nd grade and has been attending GL since Kindergarten. The teachers and staff are wonderful and extremely friendly, and you can tell that they genuinely care about the kids. I do have several complaints about areas that could be improved. First, I do not feel the kids are challenged ...  Read more

One of the best schools considering this is the West Side. Less than 50 percent Hispanic. The school is located next to the affluent or more desirable sub-divisions called 'Garden Lakes'. Top school !!! Not many kids are on the breakfast plan so imagine the families are more educated and have resources ...  Read more

Excellent teachers but they should cut out most of the Wednesday half-days and study. Too many teacher breaks.

I attended the school's Veterans Day celebration yesterday and am still in awe! What a beautiful spirit of hope on this campus. The full-day experience began with a gathering on the lawn of all staff, students and hundreds of parents and veterans. The choir and the band filled the air with beautiful ...  Read more

People that complain about safety regarding the lack of fence on 107th Ave are crazy! The only time your kids are out on the field they are supervised, and only upper level grades are out there! Teach your kids not to run into traffic and trust teachers to watch you kids, they do, not one death or injury ...  Read more
