There are some good teachers in Gainesville. Wish I could say the same for the principal. If your child is an introvert, this might not be the best place for them. My son made it through with excellent grades, but the experience was more traumatic than I realized until he was in senior high and started ...  Read more

Gainesville MS is a wonderful school. Don't let the words of one or two people determine your opinion of the school. Look at the website or visit the app. Also, look at the school's profile. It is one of the best schools in all of Northern Virginia.

Previous review by angry parent should be disregarded. Gainesville is an outstanding middle school that offers a multitude of enriching classes for adolescents. There are no existing issues concerning behavior at GVMS.

Love this school. The administration and teachers have their focus where it should be, on the students. Policies are geard toward learning, not just elevating the school. Sad that so many "specialty" programs are pulling families away from this great school into over-rated and over-crowded programs ...  Read more
