    My Granddaughters enrolled in Ginter Park Sept. 2011 in 1st and 2nd grade. They are now in 2nd and 3rd grade. The staff at Ginter Park really do care about the children and strive to guide them in the right direction. The Principal shows outstanding leadership and I have never seen a more caring Principal than Ms. Williams. She does everything she can to keep our children learning and give them the tools they need to succeed. My children love their teachers and I think they are all wonderful. I only wish we had more involvement from our parents and guardians. It does take a village to raise our children. Please support our children for all of our futures. Thank You Ginter Park staff. You are appreciated. Mrs. Taylor

    My son attends Ginter Park and he attended Mary scott annex. He loves his teacher he has now and succeeding to his full potiental. His first grade teacher was excellent he liked her. She helpled him alot. He also loved his 2nd grade teacher he was excellent. The teacher's care about the students and want them to rise above and beyond. Which I love. Cause if your child loves their school they will succeed!

    This school is great because the students strive to meet the high expectations of the teachers even though it is a title one school. The best part is that they are succeeding!

    My daughter and my son attended Mary Scott which is the annex building to Ginter Park Elementary School. My son was in the PDD program and my daughter was a kindergartner. Thier teachers were excellent and they both learned a lot in the 2004/2005 school year. My daughter is a self-learner but her teacher was great with her. She learned so much this year and we are so proud of her progress. She learned how to read and she have learned how to spell basic words and write sentences. The level of parent involvement is very low and the school have not learned how to bring parents together to have a successful school.
