    This is a good school. The teachers and staff are caring and go the extra mile to make the year memorable and instructive for the kids. My daughter is very happy there.

    I am very involved in my children's education. This is a great school. The teachers and administration have high expectations for all students at J H Gunn.

    I am a parent who has 1 child that has attended K-3rd so far and with the change in principals came a change in teacher retention. I also do not like the demographics and feel they are unequal and feel teachers spend entirely too much time disciplining children and not educating. Sadly we are seeking another school to insure my child's education is the primary focus.

    k-3rd. Fought to get an education at this school gave up and sold my house to get away from this school system. White is the minority. English is the second language worried about my childs saftey. Glad to be somewhere else.

    I cannot say it loud enough - i love J.H. Gunn! this is my son's 2nd year there and i cannot think of a better school for him to attend. The teachers are caring and loving towards the students. The principal ms. 'G' treats them as if they are her own and has a hands on relationship with them. Ms. Pendergrass was my son's 3rd grade teacher and she and i were side-by-side partners in his education. She cared for him called me when she had concerns and kept him close to her heart she is an exceptional teacher she teaches the whole child. This year my son was blessed to be assigned in ms. Price.....She is awesome to say the least. We will be moving out of the district and the fact that my son will no longer be attending J.H. Gunn brings tears to my eyes.
