I couldn't be more proud to send my daughter to this school. The teachers are phenomenal and truly care about the students. The school culture is one that is caring and loving to all students. My child is a better person for attending Gunderson.

Gunderson is a good school should you only have easy students. I've had 10 meetings in one semester to try to correct things for my less than perfect child. We are finally having a placement meeting to transfer him out. Once a child has a label, they cannot get through a day it seems without a referral ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
