    "I'm very unhappy with this school. My child is new to Gillespie, she has been bullied pretty much since the first week of school. I went up to the school when it strated nothing was done about it. Well today she was hit several times with a broom stick by that student. Would you believe the school didn't think it was important enough to call me or her dad? I don't feel my child is safe in this school. The teacher was there while my child was being assaulted by this other student she did nothing. My question is why did this girl have a broom stick and where did she get it from? Bad school unsafe for children!"

    "Gillespie is a great school! For years I have been seeking help for my child. I have always felt that she needed to be evaluated in order to receive the instruction that she needs. After enrolling her in Gillespie and requesting an evaluation she finally received the support she needed and she is doing well. Thank you Gillespie!!"

    "Gillespie is a great school thus far very pleased with the staff administration to the teachers. My son is currently in Pre-K full time and he is receiving a quality education wit the advance technology, hands on activities, reinforcement of proper behavior, and constant encouragement, and I love the communication between teachers and parents. I do see majority of staff encouraging good behavior and keeping the kids safe before, during, and after school with helping children stay away from various public establishments, helping them cross the streets safely, fun and encouraging activities throughout the month. I was surprised at the parent turnout. Great job to principal willis and the Pre K teachers Ms. Brothers and Cooperwood. Adminstration staff Ms. Sanders and the other lady (forgot her name)."

    "I love Gillespie School. One of the reasons I was comfortable moving my family to this area is because I heard a lot of good things about what was going at Gillespie. The teachers are very caring and there are lots of programs after-school and on the weekends to keep the kids in a constant state of learning while having fun."
