Yep - 09/10 school year was a tough one. I feel it was due to the fact that many children that had left (or been asked to leave) other schools, found themselves at Gaudior. They were welcomed with open arms - but their ridiculous behavior made it difficult on everyone - students and staff alike. Yes
... Read more - two directors vs. one - that takes time - it'll work. They both are the most dedicated people I know. I have been assured that 10/11 will be different. The staff that I have spoken with sound positive and upbeat about the coming year. We've been here for a number of years - and are excited about the 10/11 school year!. And no - the Gaudior of today is NOT the Gaudior of yesterday. And I'm glad for that. The Gaudior of today and tomorrow will be even BETTER! Come see what we're about!! Read less

The Gaudior of today is not the Gaudior of yesterday. As someone who has seen some very dynamic changes in the the past years, I can only say that the school has been on a downhill trend. With the Teachers, it is truly a hit or miss, some of the best and most dedicated teachers i have ever seen are here,
... Read more while also some of the teachers just have no idea how to control a classroom, creating an enviroment unsuitable for teaching. The administrative leadership has devolved from one highly dedicated and involved principal, or "Director", to two very inefficient people who are unable or unwilling to create a proper chain of command, creating a perceived lack of responsiblity which results in no actual work getting done and no decisions being made. Gaudior has the potential to be the best, i've seen it, but it's not living up it now. Read less

My child attended Gaudior from kindergarten through eighth grades. He received a quality education from caring teachers.

I am sorry to say i would not recomend this school. My child attended this school for 3 years and when she was evaluated she was behind but by Gaudior standards she was a S+ (A-B student ) in all subject areas. I do love the fact that it is a small school and everbody know every boby but while that

The school has alot to offer as far as teacher/student involement. The teachers really care, Rosie is exceptional. Whether they are taking the children to a museum, Mackinaw Island, planning Gaudior Night, or just working real hard just so the student will finally 'get it' in their math. They are second

The school seems clean enough, not sure what the other remarks meant, have they ever been in any other pre-school-8th schools before, especially any that have so many projects going on for the kids, it may be a little messy, but is mostly activities for kids, or showing off their work.

The people are nice. I agree with the comment on the cleanliness, or lack of it. Some of the classrooms are very junky, the office looks like my garage. There was always a strong urine smell when I just walked past the bathrooms. It always seemed like there was just piles of stuff on the floor around
... Read more the school. The outside frequently has garbage laying around. As far as the learning, it seems hit or miss. A couple of great teachers, but then the turnover is extremely high; the really good ones seem to leave. No textbooks, which is okay, but then we have a bunch of illegally photocopied pages that are hard to keep track of. Sometimes I felt like some of the lessons were just straight from the Internet (evidenced by the web addresses at the top of the pages). And the discipline was rather lax. Read less

It seems the naysayers always have the taste of sour grapes in their mouths. Well, I'm a reluctant naysayer because I really do like the teachers there. As an extremely involved member of the Gaudior community for several years, I enjoyed that atmosphere. Comfy, shabby, not too clean or fancy - kinda

But, you figure, that's life. However, after experiencing another (clean) school more technology/math/science oriented, I wonder if all that comfy coziness was really what my kids needed in a school. The school they now attend is immeasurably, incomprehensibly beyond what they were getting at Gaudior. Not to mention it is a relief to be in a place with firm classroom management skills. That's priceless. Read less

I love this school! The teachers are involved and on target with their learning lessons. EVERYONE really plays an active role and does a great job pulling Parent involvement in. The school focuses on academics as well as building characteristics, self-esteem, self-respect and respecting others. They

I currently attend Gaudior Academy. I think the school is pretty good. The only thing that Gaudior lacks is extra-cirriculor activities.
