    "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."

    "My son recently transferred to gillespie from a so called "good" school. After getting adjusted to the new surroundings, his grades and behavior greatly improved and he was one grade shy from being included on the honor roll. Gillespie does a lot with the limited funds that they receive and the teaching staff seems patient and dedicated. I would recommend gillespie to anyone looking for a school for their children."
