Read what parents are saying about Gililland Middle School
The staff at Gililland is above par, has been the entire three years my son has attended school there. The front office staff always has answers to your questions and are helpful and happy to be so. The teaching staff I have had plenty of communication with over the years and this year included. I find them quick to respond, willing to assist and definitely "hands on" when it comes to your student and their specific needs. I wish they had a better sports program offered and also an art program. Aside from that I have no complaints about Gililland.

My Children attend Gilland(6th and 8th grade) they are both A and B students and I over all appreciate the teachers and staff. Anywhere you go there are going to be troubled kids, fights and also drugs it's all about you raise your children at home. Teach them to lead and not follow , emphasize how important education is, stay on top of their homework in their grades, and have good communication with their teachers and your kids should to be able to shine in any situation and that's just my opinion

This school is honestly the worst. Lots of fights, kids who do drugs. I suggest enrolling your kids some where else beside gililland. Gililland is the worse school any kid can go to. Not a day where someone can not get into a argument.

3/10!!! Wow, that's extremely sad. My children did go here only because it is our home school, but I am glad I enrolled them elsewhere. This school has very disruptive students who make it difficult for kids who actually want to learn & get an education do so. The majority of the students here are rude, talk back to the teachers, curse & it's obvious they lack discipline at home. Lets not forget about the gang activity & fights that occur. The school tries to enforce the lacked discipline but don't effectively follow through because the students are absolutely unruly. You can tell by the test scores how the students really care about their education. The teachers care & try to help but mostly for the kids who actually care about their education, which would probably be about 25% of the students.

Gililland Middle School is the best ! I've heard many students from other schools say its ghetto because its a druggie school and there's a lot of fights... Well they're wrong. Gililland has a program called "Rachel's Challenge" it is about antibullying. And so far It's has help my school a ton. I am an 8th grader now, but when I was in 7th grader I could understand why people said that this school is ghetto. But that was the past and this year it's a lot better. No school is like Gililland Middle School ! Our teachers and staff are the best and you can't forget about our wonderful principle Mr. Wald ! Last year I was in the basic math but this year I jumped to algebra math because of the amazing teachers who teach you the right stuff ! They provide you with extra help if a student needs it . I give this school a 5 star and I would recommend it to parents who have a 6th 7th and 8th grade child who doesn't go to Gililland Middle School ! GO ROADRUNNERS !!!
