Open Quote I have 5 kids and they have all gone through this school. The teachers and the staff are all great! Close Quote


by a student
Thursday, April 23, 2015

Open Quote I was a special needs student who fell through the cracks. I was treated poorly by several staff and students and my struggles were rarely acknowledged by staff to my mother. They never tried to evaluate me for any learning disabilities and declared me to have 'school phobia' when I started not coming ( I was having really bad anxiety/etc toward the middle of fifth grade ). I'm an adult now and I'm honestly amazed now that I look back that none of the staff were fired or suspended. ( I'm 19 this year. I went to Gilbert Heights from first grade to fifth grade. ) 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.
