I thought the teachers and especially the new principal were good. I think GAB was rated a 6 when we were there and is now an 8 which really says something. At the same time, Arthur Edwards and Gurganus were 9's I believe and are now 8's as well. However, I agree with the previous poster. Our son ...  Read more

It is hard to judge, since my first grader has only attended GAB, but we have mixed reviews. It is an older school that is in need of some upgrades (which are supposedly in the works).

We will be pulling our child out. Some staff are excellent, ...  Read more

My children love this school and so do I! The staff is very professional and they tend to go the extra mile for the sake of the children. My kids rant and rave about their P.E. teacher! And they also like the overall staff and activities. They're usually excited about going to school! Which is a ...  Read more
