It is unbelievable how excited my children are for the start of school tomorrow!! I give 100% credit to the teachers at Gilbert Arts Academy.

This will sadly be our last year of school here at GAA. My student is very excited for the school year to begin! We are still trying to figure out a way to have GAA extend to 2 extra years here.

I wish I could give this school zero or negative stars. This is the worse school I have ever been to. The teachers were not experience or educated at all. I have never known of a school who doesn't want volunteers in their classrooms. I always felt this school was full of fake and evil people and sad ...  Read more

This is a great school! It's a small campus and the teachers and staff know all the students names and families. Our kids really like being at GAA for class and all the after school clubs. Keep up the good work 5th grade!

This is our first year at Gilbert Arts and we are so happy we made the change. It's smaller than our Gilbert Public School, but my kids are really being challenged in class and love their teachers. Everyone is so positive and respectfull. As a parent, I love the Zero Tolerence policy for bullying.

This school is not what it is cracked up to be. The teachers are lax and overbearing. Its their way or the highway. Don't go there.
