I recently moved to Arizona and this is the first school I enrolled my second grader to. I have to say the teacher does not like when parents are concerned with their children's well being.

Islands Elementary School is a clean, pleasant school in a great location. Class sizes are larger than expected for primary grades making it difficult for some teachers to differentiate instruction for all student levels.

If we could do it over we would not have our child at Islands. Unfriendly staff and a complete disregard for students well being. I watch kids man handle eachother in the morning while several teachers engage eachother.

Because they have the best staff in Gilbert. They are always going out of their way to do great things for the kids. They seem to take more time to help make sure they understand. Unlike middle school and high school where they seem to be just a number.

This school is outstanding. The teachers are so cheerful and care so much about the kids. They go above and beyond their regular work day.

We just moved to AZ and my children love their new school. The teachers and staff are all very friendly. My only concern so far is the large class sizes. My second grader's class has 27 students . He's getting a bit lost in the shuffle.
