Open Quote Now that the school is going Montessori everything is looking good for Gilpin. They have Montessori teachers who are doing amazing things for the children. Mr. Vincent is a notable Montessori teacher. My only real problem with the school is the principal, Cathy Gonzales. She is not an effective principal, seems to be a bit two faced, and worst of all doesn't give off the impression that she supports Montessori (& if she really doesn't support Montessori she is short changing our children!) I feel sorry for the Montessori teacher's that have to deal with her bitterness and lack of support. I also hope for my children's sake and also for the Montessori teacher's sake, she will be replaced by a Montessori trained principal soon! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
