    I have five children in which three of my children attend this school. My 8 year old son was having trouble at his old schooland not turning in his work and when I switched him schools and enrolled for imagine the teachers made sure he got his work done and turned in on time. My nine year old son was having trouble with bullying at his old school and it was getting a little out of hand so when we switched himover to imagine we found out that they are all Like one big family and they all look out for one another and stand up and stomp out bullying. My fourteen year old daughterr redid the seventh grade last

    Posted today Report it Great Staff! You know what they say.... It starts from the TOP and this is oh so true at Imagine West Gilbert! There is a great open door policy with the Principal Dean of Students and Teachers. If you need help or simply need a question answered stop and talk to anyone at Imagine. They always make time for you and they value any time that you can give to the school. I would highly recommend this school to anyone!

    This school is a great because it helps my daughter. The Teachers always send my e-mails to let me know if she has Homework or not. Well Mrs. Gerard is the teacher that my daughter thinks she's a great. She help students with there homework and if they have a question she takes her time to answer it. Then the school is good there's no fights or no bullying with others everyone is helpful and kind even the staff and the office people. They helps my daughter keep her grades in the way she needs to have them. This school I would shout out to my friends because this school is not like the other. This school is one of a kind. Then I like when the teacher ask my daughter to eat. They look out for students heath. That's why I pick this school for my daughter they watch her and she get's help. Ever since I put my daughter in this School she change a lot in her grade and her laziness. I hope we could get a lot of People to go to this school. My daughter likes to wear uniforms because people won't make fun her.

    Imagine is a top school. There resource Department is the best. Always willing to help the kids with every special needs they have and always so patient with them. My kids wake up and want to go to school. Before it was always a tough time to get them interested in school but now they love it.

    This school at Imagine West Gilbert has the greatest staff and teachers. My son has been there for almost five years now and he has had the greatest teachers ever from third grade to the end of seventh grade. Sadly after his time the seventh grade he and I are leaving due to gas problems. The Galileo and A.I.M. & SAT10 are great test for the kids and also awesome results. And also this school had the best growth rate overall on Galileo. Great Basketball and Soccer teams have won the Golden Broom that the other schools play for. I surely re commend this school to any other student that doesn't mind uniform. Stay strong Imagine.

    Imagine School has and continues to be a great school. We adopted a middle school aged child a little over a year ago. He went from a large school where he was falling through the cracks to Imagine where he is seen and gets individual attention. He has progressed so well. It is all because of the amazing staff who have encouraged him to succeed not only in his education but to become a good person with great character. I would recommend Imagine School to everyone.

    Imagine West Gilbert is an amazing school. The teachers make an effort to know your child on an unique individual basis and embrace personal growth. My kids look forward to attending and their academic capabilities are endless!

    I love my job and I love my students. Our middle school team commits to helping every child succeed. We accelerate and modify our lessons based on the students' needs. We are preparing them for the future and working with their families to do so.

    I didn't like this school at all but i have to say the teachers were phonomanal i went here in 6th grade and the girls were all close friends and i was ostrizided if you want to have a good social enviorment for your children switch to another school.

    I am a teacher at the school and very happy to say that there is no other place I'd rather be working. The sense of family is written all over the place! The students parents teachers all work together to make West Gilbert the best place it can be! Way to go WG!

    I used to go to this school and i went for 6 years. I LOVED that school but They dont get you ready fro highschool as much as they can. when i switched schools i was going into the 7th grade and it was a school that you pick classes and is the best school in the Higley disrict and when i switched i had the harest time Because they didnt prepare us enough to grow and expand and get ready fro highschool. I dont recommend it if you dont like your kkid having a hard time and want them to be ready for jr.high or highschool.

    I have been a student at west gilbert for a year and now im graduating. The teachers at west gilbert are very strict but let those they favor pass. Kids will say to parents everything is fine no bullying or anything even to teachers but when your by yourself theres nothing but. Teachers and parents dont understand. If you are getting teased the kids will not say anything thats just asking for more teasing. Just because we are in a charter school doesnt mean we wont get teased all that means is we will get a 'higher' education.And for extracarricular activites they r growing and growing. Now the lunches are disgusting!

    The academic programs are adequate to good. I would not consider it excellent. Sports music and a few extracurricular activites are available. The level of parent involvement is adequate to good as well

    My daughter is in the seventh grade at West Gilbert and she loves it. She is challenged everyday to do her best and excel. The academic program is based on a elevated grade level. The teachers believe in their students and give them the help and tools for them to succeed.

    Great school with a challenging approach. Happier with junior high level then elementary level.
