Amazing. Simply One Of the Best Schools My Kids Went To. They have a great community and great teachers and teaching quality. I simply love it!

With minimal interest in academic achievements beyond the state's minimum testing requirements, the school is steadily lowering expectations with regards to student's preparedness for a higher education or employment requirements in a globalized competitive job market.

I'm a parent of a student that attends GMSW and this school is not excellent it actually STINKS!

I rate this school in the top catigory. Due to the staff, principal, and the team work that has been available for me and my family. My son recently became a member of his community, after 10 years of being in a program for autistic children. He has been included with typical students, and is doing ...  Read more
