No Structure, Over crowded Futhermore, while we are praying for our children we need to pray for the teachers thats teaching them. I do not recommend anyone send their child here. After they receive the funding for your child at the end of Oct. they nolonger care!

This school is a trap for teenagers, with carless teachers and low quality information. There is no control in most classrooms and the teachers act like children sometimes as well. It is not a good school, but better than nothing. It needs a major makeover.

I moved away from Hammond due to the schools. My daughter went to Gavit for 6th through 8th and my son went for most of 6th. The school has to focus more on discipline than they can on education. Drugs were being sold right at the front door (per my kids), they need to worry about gangs and fighting ...  Read more

I understand that some schools may not get the money they need to do certain things but people make it sound like our school is going to fall apart. I have been at Gavit since 6th grade and I love it. I love the ...  Read more

My oldest child is attending Gavit Middle school, this year and I have to admit that I had/have some reservations about my son attending a school where the middle school and HS are combined. I was and I am very impressed with the Elementary school (Thomas Jefferson) my children attend. Anyway, I like ...  Read more
