Gayton is a very family oriented school. Great friendly teachers, welcoming enviorment. I would recommend this school to everyone. Homework can be alittle challenging but i think this helps reinforce the classwork.

Something is amiss when the principal herself takes vacations of several days' duration at random times during the academic year. Where is the school district administration that it allows this?

Each teacher my child has had has been wonderful. However I have many other concerns: the office staff is unwilling to help and speaks ill of other parents while others are listening; the sign-in process is a joke; no one is willing to recognize or test for gifted students until 3rd grade; there are ...  Read more

This is a wonderful school. We moved into the area so my daughter could go to Gayton. She attended kindergarten at Gayton and is entering first grade. We absolutely adored my daughter's kindergarten teacher. She was so involved with the children, she would call us if my daughter did something 'cute' ...  Read more
