My child started this school in Kindergarten and is currently in 1st grade. The teachers are AWESOME. They do a fantastic job informing us of classroom and school-wide events, the children fill out a detailed color-coded system on a monthly calendar sent home daily. Their turnaround is quick if I ...  Read more

Open enrolled in Diamond Canyon 3 years ago and have not looked back. Bullying on the playground and son put in divider room between K classes for several hours without parent or principal knowledge. I will drive to get the education my child needs and is fostered in.

This school was highly recommended to us as one of the best in Anthem. We had much higher expectations based on their rating and it was a huge disappointment. This school has way more cons than pros. People that send their children to Gavilan Peak obviously have never attended any another schools ...  Read more

Theft is a problem in the classroom of students belongings as there are very few ...  Read more

Normally involved parents become disconnected; the teachers want little or no parental involvement. One of the teachers does not handle herself in a professional manner. She humiliates and ...  Read more

We attended 5th this yr. And this is by far the worse school we have ever been too. I would recommend the school. Do your research prior to sending. -lack of communication from this school to parents -that goes with the principle does not respond to parents. And never around at school -no text books ...  Read more

Overcrowded, no discipline or policies in place. Bullying, bad language, no respect for other students or teachers. After one year here we can't get out fast enough. Children are not in an environment where learning is promoted or prioritized.

I love Gavilan Peak school! We are finishing our first year of kindergarten here and are looking forward to attending again next year. I do have to say that if you do not want to be involved in your childs education, this is NOT the school for you. There is a considerable amount of homework, especially ...  Read more

Another great year at GP! The teachers are so amazing-personally & academically. They are always striving to do more. The Mandarin Immersion is such an awesome program for the students. We couldn't be happier!
