Open Quote Our grandson started Kindergarten in 2016, by the end of the school year they recommended Summer school. In First grade it was apparent that he was struggling with school and had been bullied by older students. In the Second grade we decided it was time to get him tested. We discovered through testing at our Neuropsychologist that he was Autistic, ADHD, Anxiety, Dyslexia and Dysgraphia along with a Mood Disorder. We then had to go through the same process in the school in order to get an IEP - Individualized Education Plan for ESE services. The teachers and staff are not trained to recognize or teach a student with Dyslexia in the General Education setting. Nor did the Pinellas County School District offer choices for teaching a student with Dyslexia in the General Education setting. Although they now have a Dyslexia Specialist, they only offer Linda-Mood Bell methodology through ESE services and I'm not sure of the qualifications of the VE teacher @ GBEMS. Now a fourth grader, we are very disappointed in the help we have received from this school, teachers and principal in closing the achievement gaps caused by delay in services. If you think your child may need ESE - Excelptional Student Education services... THIS IS NOT the school for your student! I have volunteered, partnered with my students teachers, held meetings with the Principal, spoken with ESE staff in the District and Lost faith in our education system through this exhausting process!!!
If you feel like your child my have Learning Differences... PLEASE, request in writing, as soon as possible to test your child for services. This will avoid your child being embarrassed, psychologically hurt and save them from hating school.
I believe this is a good school for an average or gifted student though. 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.
