    My child is attending the PEP program since he was 3 now he is ready to go to Kindergarten and I can't be more thankful and amazed with the dedication and love these teachers have. My experience with all of his teachers have been great and he always comes home with great projects and so excited about what he learned. The school is wonderful and the administration is well run.

    My son is in 5th grade and he is in this school since from 3rd grade. Our son went to another good rated school in this region from Kidergarten to 2nd grade and so we could rate this school at par with other school that my son went. Though this school is new school ( just 4 years old) the Principal is really very dynamic as well as the enthusistic teaching & admin team. The school has progreesed a lot in their planning and executing actiivities. The PTA is really great organinising lot of family events and lot of extra currucular activities like Science / Arts / other language learnings etc. Overall this a great school and we did not feel bad anytime on moving to this school zone from a well known school zone area.

    My son is in 2nd grade and I am very happy about the school. Staff is very responsive to student and parent needs. Principle is very proactive and works very well with students and parents. I really like their yearly STEM conference as well as additional enrichment opportunities available for students such as robotics.

    I have a 1st grader in this school and am very excited about my kindergartner starting there next year. It's a wonderful school with a great staff and Teachers. They work as a team together and with parents in order to continually improve the quality of education and the learning environment.

    Am a former deputy administrator in education that is new to the area and based on the school as well as the Board of Ed test scores on their respective websites Gibbs appears to be an average-above average 3.5 stars) school. As the reviews indicate I've heard nothing but praise for the school staff and look forward to meeting my son's teacher as well as other members of the instructional and support teams when school opens later this month. I was quite impressed with the principal and thoroughly enjoyed my interaction with her. However as I indicated during our conversation I would like to see more current information posted on the school website (including the school supply list (since school begins in less than 2 weeks).

    Gibbs is a GREAT school!. The staff is awesome and the principal is always involved she also knows the kids by name.The field trips are curriculum based. The PTA has great ideas that involves all nationalities. My son has attended grades 2nd-4th and my younger son was only able to attended Pre-K because we moved out of state.

    We could not be happier at Gibbs! Every single one of our children's teachers has been top-notch and the administration is very organized and in touch with the school community. There is a place for every child here whether they have special needs or an extra challenge. I've never heard the words "I'm bored at school" coming out of my kids' mouths! The PTA is also terrific--lots of great activities throughout the year and parental involvement in the classroom. We have to move this summer because of my husband's job and one of the things we are saddest to leave is Gibbs. GO GATORS!
