Open Quote We have absolutely LOVED Gordon elementary school! My son started Kindergarten there for the 2016-17 school year. While he excelled academically, his maturity level and attention span was a different story. His teacher was absolutely incredible and very patiently worked with me to develop a plan to help him improve. He flourished under her care and has an even greater love of learning than when he began school.
The administrative staff was wonderful to work with and have always been so patient and communicative! We love being Gordon Patriots and members of this wonderful community! Close Quote

Open Quote Staff held my child after school until 5:00 without parental consent for SOL testing!! Gave no notification in advance and forced me to leave work early in order to make it in time to pick him up! Very selfish minded administration- could have cost me my job and 4th graders should not be testing from 1:30-5:00!! To say outraged would be an understatement! 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.
