I'm a new parent to Gwin Oaks and my son in kindergarten is loving every bit of going to school. Thus far, I must say his teacher has being excellent and I don't have any complaints about other staff of the school. All the staff members are friendly, attentive, cares about their students and appears to love their job. Fantastic neighborhood, friendly families and a great school, what more could I ask for. The school is diverse, I have seen parents from different cultural background and ethnicity relate and get along very well.

cont of post on June 29, 14: Yes, GOES is dedicated 2higher learning but they are truly more focused on their reputation as a "10" rated school & test scores. They r really only dedicated 2a select group of kids & not ensuring all their students are exceling at their best. (this school exercises nepotism towards certain kids especially those of southeast asian backgrounds & their parents only stick with one another, very clickish) They rather pass students just 2keep their ratings high. And most parents and staff are not going to admit that GOES has flaws that desperately need to be addressed only because if it doesn't directly affect them they don't care. If your looking for a school like how greatschools describes parent involvement as being treated as a partner not an outsider & wld like 2be included in every aspect of your child's education while also being part of a family oriented environment then GOES is not the place 2send your child. Desperately hoping the new school year will be dramatically different but sure wish we were going elsewhere.

I Originally thought, "Wow, the school is small.." But, that had NO Disqualifications when it comes to "Gwin Oaks!" This school and it's staff are More than DYNAMIC, they are Extremely DEDICATED to a Higher Standard of Education. Not to Mention a rating a "10!" (My personal point of view) Behavioral standards ex: Bullying, zero tolerance...The Teacher's usually keep this kind of behavior at a very low tolerance. Children WILL test this area BUT, Gwin Oaks is a "10" and Our Son Couldn't have made us More Proud! With the Front Staff & their attentative concerns and help along with the school counselor, (10+) and Whole staff, I couldn't express what Gratitude we have for 5 wonderful yrs. Our son is Now moving forward to Middle School! Many Great memories, The teacher's not only help student's that fall behind but push those that excel. Thank You Gwin Oaks and Whole Staff...

I recently visited Gwin Oaks Elementary School and I have to say that I was impressed. The administrative counselor Mrs. Pugh gave an awesome and thorough tour. Mrs. Pugh was very enthusiastic about this school and she answered all of my questions. The children seemed very happy and Mrs. Pugh knew all the lil ones by name. This seems to be a very down to Earth and nurturing learning environment. And I was most impressed with the fact that the school was in the middle of a power outage and the children were orderly and well behaved. And Mrs. Pugh pulled off the tour without a hitch when she obviously had her hands full

This is our second year at Gwin Oaks. Our son was in Kindergarten last year. We had an outstanding teacher. She had 25 plus years experience. Starting in January, our son was having to write 4-5 sentences every day. That has really helped him for first grade. The jury is still out so far this year. So far, school has been really good.

Gwin Oaks is a great school when you get a great teacher , and there are few bad apples everywhere. The admistration has changed and I must say , I loved the friendliness and sincerity of the previous. However overall, it is a decent school. The worst thing is the design of the school, getting in and out is horrible.Apparently the architec and admin had no vision for future growth.

The teachers at this school have worked hard with us to keep my 2nd grader focused and on track. Her grades have steadily improved and the weekly reports and feedback, emails and conferences have been very helpful.
