    I am lucky to have my daughter go to this school. They were the only school that was willing to help me when I needed to enroll my daughter. I have gone to the other elementary schools to enroll my daughter and was treated rudely and with no respect. I am an educated person who truly believes that education is very very important and that it begins with the parents. It was important for me to get my daughter started in a school that cares. Geddes was the only school that really cared and told me that if they had to that they would open another class just to get my daughter in. Mind you we do not live in the district. My daughter has been attending Geddes since she started Kindergarten and she is now in 4th grade. The teachers are great and I wouldn't change it for the world.
