    This is an exceptional learning environmental.Not only do the administrators teachers & support staff focus on academic goals they are keenly aware of the significance a positive social & emotional environment plays in student achievement.Gayman has truly created a dedicated community an exceptionally supportive place where students thrive.School staff is accessible encouraging parental communication through phone/email.Student problems are resolved with team effort considering all aspects of the child.There are endless opportunities to volunteer and contribute both during & after school hours accommodating all work schedules.My children are motivated to go to Gayman eager to see teachers and friends loving their classrooms library lunchroom and especially the gym teacher Mr. Foster.My children are average students sometimes struggling sometimes excelling. The Gayman staff have never labeled them either way.Each teacher firmly understands that children learn in ebbs and flows.Staff exhibits extraordinary patience & respect for learning process instilling a desire to be lifelong learners. I am in awe as to how this environment was created it is truly exceptional.

    We love this school or son started kindergarten in September and then had trouble all winter with illness. Everyone worked hard to keep him on track and up to par and as sping is upon us the flowers are not the only thing blooming. Our son went from always needing more practice to bringing home work that was at or above the expected standard. Way to go Gayman your hardwork has paid off!

    Gayman is such a great school. Our daughter started there this month and she has grown by leaps and bounds. In one month she went from struggling with her math facts to complete mastery of all her multiplication and division. Not only is the curriculum great everyone is so nice. They are always ready to help and always happy to see you. The principal is great too. He is young and down to earth. He is a part of the educating staff instead of the boss of it all. The kids are great too my daughter started in the middle of the year and on her first day she had at least five new 'best friends'. Every teacher in the school is great. There is not just one favorite teacher to get they are all great. My daughters teacher actually inspires her to learn and do better.

    The teachers are fabulous here. I have had two sons go there and have been impressed with all the teachers they have been involved with. I think the counselors there are awesome as well. Very caring very knowledgable and very much interested in the welfare of the kids. The after-school program is wonderful as well.

    Gayman is a wonderful small and friendly school. The teachers are all very energetic and helpful the staff is so supportive of all students and parents. I am so glad that my son can go to a small friendly school rather than a school so large the parents don't even know each other. At Gayman it seems like all the parents know each other and are always involved in the kids school.
